Chris Wilder takes another look at ‘world-class politician’ Jurgen Klopp


Chris Wilder took another blow to Jurgen Klopp over the partial return of fans to some clubs. The Sheffield United boss last week accused Klopp of being ‘selfish’ over his demands for the return of five substitutes because it would help Liverpool.

And Wilder has again targeted the Reds boss for failing to call on supporters to return to all Premier League fields.

He says it is unfair that Liverpool can host 2,000 supporters after next Wednesday when United and most of the other clubs in the north cannot because they are at level 3.

“He’s a world-class manager and a world-class politician, who cares about Liverpool,” he said. “That’s all he’s interested in.

Wilder insulted himself again at Klopp

“He was never going to say what to say about Sheffield United for the return of his fans, Newcastle or Man City or Man United or anyone else. He is a world class politician.

“I know his support background and how much of a fortress Anfield has been. The support from Liverpool is wonderful, I know it’s because my old man is from that part of the world.

“I know he spoke about it and Jurgen isn’t going to say it’s not fair that they can have fans because they’re at level 2 and Sheffield United, Leeds, Manchester and all the rest of the north are not allowed to enter.

“It was funny looking at this map, wasn’t it?” Shock! I think we in the North fully expected that we were in the old level three, because they kindly put us.

Wilder’s comments come after highlighting what he sees as personal interest among some Premier League managers last week.

“Cards on the table, he (Klopp) is going to take care of his own club,” said the Blades boss. “I have incredible respect for these leaders because they produce exceptional results and win things.

“But they’re selfish, they run their own clubs. They won’t be bothered by Sheffield United, they won’t be bothered by England.

“They are going to be bothered by Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea, which I understand and respect. I would be the same, but I’m bothered by Sheffield United and it doesn’t help us to have five subs. ”
