Pulis delivers verdict on war of words with Klopp ahead of clash v Liverpool
By Danny Wright
Tony Pulis has cooled the war of words with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
The West Brom boss will welcome the Reds to the Hawthorns on Sunday in an important game for both clubs.
A win for Klopp’s side will help cement their place in the top four while the Baggies will want to equal their best ever Premier League finish in eighth.
In 2015, the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager led his squad to the Kop to celebrate earning a 2-2 draw with West Brom – something which didn’t go down well with Pulis.
The German boss responded by criticising Albion’s long-ball tactics.

However the Baggies manager has said that there is no longer an issue between himself and Klopp going into Sunday’s clash.
“There’ll be no problems with myself or Klopp,” said Pulis, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“He’s a competitive man and wants his team to win. There’s no problems this end.”
West Brom do not go into this weekend’s match in good form, despite their impressive league position.
They have failed to find the net in their last three matches and have only picked up four points from 18 available in their last six matches – although they earned all those points against teams above them in the table.
Pulis goes into the game knowing that his personal history against Liverpool is in his favour.
The former Stoke and Crystal Palace manager has not seen any of the team he’s managed lose to the Reds on home turf.
