Jurgen Klopp has responded to criticism from Real Madrid after the comments he made following Liverpool’s 3-1 loss to Spain last week.
With the Santiago Bernabeu currently under renovation, the Champions League quarter-final first leg between the two teams took place at the La Liga Giants Stadium – Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.

The Reds manager was not impressed with the field, where Real Madrid Castilla play their home games, and has been heard saying: “This is a training ground. It’s like we are visiting Manchester United and playing on their training ground ”, before the first leg in Madrid.

Meanwhile, he also gave the pitch another mention after the final whistle after Liverpool’s loss.

“It must be a really tricky task for Real Madrid at Anfield,” Klopp said.

“It was weird tonight because it was really tough with the stadium (at the Madrid training ground) but Anfield is at least a real stadium and it will be good for us. “

But after a widespread backlash in Spain, including both Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman, who accused the German of being disrespectful, Klopp decided to clarify his original comments.

“I didn’t want to be disrespectful. If they think this is the stadium they should be playing in, that’s totally fine for me, ”said the German. “They played in it all season. I know the situation. Everything is fine, but to tell what I said is a real joke.

“If anyone thought I was being disrespectful: sorry. It was not my intention. “

Liverpool will host Real Madrid in the return leg between the two teams at Anfield on Wednesday night.
