Expert can't believe 'beyond strange' Jurgen Klopp actions before and after Liverpool v Tottenham

Jurgen Klopp’s actions before and after Liverpool’s game against Tottenham were “beyond strange”.

That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Speaking after Saturday’s (7 May) 1-1 draw, as quoted by Sky Sports, Klopp admitted he is not a fan of the way Tottenham played against his side.

He said “I think they [Tottenham] should do more for the game”, implying he wanted the opposition to attack more.

Wenham was left baffled by his comments and some of the actions Klopp took before the game.

“The staring at our warm-up before the game was beyond strange,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“If Mourinho had done that could you imagine the abuse he would be getting from other teams?

“I find that very, very strange behaviour. We should have sent one of our staff members to stand in front of him to block his view, that would have been fantastic.

“The comments after the game, where do you start? He didn’t have a problem with our tactics when we went to Man City and put Liverpool back in the title race.

“We played exactly the same way. Also, we have put five past Everton and Newcastle in recent weeks as well as four past Aston Villa.

I’m not sure how that is defensive. The whole thing is completely bizarre.

“I’m surprised by those comments, it’s sour grapes for me and I’m glad the media has jumped on them.”
