Klopp 'is going to start fires' after Liverpool reveal from BBC - pundit

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp “is going to start some fires” in his post-match press conferences this season, according to Kevin Campbell.

The former Premier League striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed players want their manager to “come out swinging” after loses a match.

Klopp was fuming after Liverpool’s 3-2 loss at West Ham on Sunday.

Speaking to the BBC, Klopp told a reporter “I’m not your puppy” when quizzed about the officiating in the match.

“Listen, Klopp is going to start some fires. That is what he is going to do.

“Do you know what? When you are up there in the fight, that is what you want your manager to do as a player – come out swinging.

“Klopp obviously didn’t like the refereeing. At the end of the day, Liverpool are one of the favourites to win the title and when they lose to a club like West Ham, it is not nice. I do not blame him for coming out swinging, to be honest with you.”

When asked about the Cresswell incident, Klopp told the BBC: “My god. I’m not your puppy.

“Hopefully, you have an opinion yourself. All good.”
