Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on bad loser accusations and why he can’t let bad temper persist


Jurgen Klopp has responded to accusations of being a bad loser by explaining why he can’t let a bad mood linger against his Liverpool team.The Reds boss raised his eyebrows with a cold interview on Sky Sports immediately after the Reds’ disappointing 4-0 loss at Manchester City on Thursday.

Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane, who worked at Etihad for Sky as a specialist, jumped in defense of Klopp.

The Liverpool manager then admitted that he was not in a good mood until arriving at Melwood the next morning to start preparing Sunday’s Premier League shock at home against Aston Villa.

And asked him if he reacted the same way to each defeat, Klopp replied: “Am I always like that? I do not know. I had so many setbacks that I sometimes needed more than one night (to overcome), but not much longer.

“I decided a long time ago things that I cannot change, I am not embarrassed (by the way). I can’t change Thursday’s result, I can only use it for the next game. This is what I try.

“But you can’t stop feeling, and a defeat looks really, really mean. It takes time.

“Sometimes human beings take too long to suffer from something that has not worked. I am not sorry.

“I am very self-critical, but not often self-pity, because as long as I am in good health, I can influence my situation and our situation in this case. ”

Klopp added: “The mood of the players depends a bit on me. If I come to scream at them like crazy, we can suffer longer, I would say.

“If you focus on the facts, you can see it’s done, the boss is obviously not 100% satisfied but we are already working on the solutions, so let’s continue. “
