If Lionel Messi is a baby faced assassin (hint: he 100% is.) then Jurgen Klopp can only be described as a media savage.
Recently Sam Allardyce, yes, Sam Allardyce who is coaching the next to last place Sunderland, said that Liverpool is facing so many muscle strain injuries due to Klopp’s demand for high tempo play.
“I don’t think Jurgen has realized just how ferocious our league is at this period of time and because he has asked for that extra-high energy — that extra 10 yards — these lads are fatiguing now with so many games in such a short period of time and are picking up these muscle strains.”
Jurgen Klopp was quick to respond,and make it clear that he’s not the one to banter about.
“I am glad for Sam, such an experienced manager, that he has time to think about Liverpool’s problems – I don’t have time to think about this.”
“The problem is now people speak about the intensity of my style – I didn’t create a style, how could I? I am not a genius,”
“We play only football and a team like Liverpool, with the ambitions the club have, we have to find a way to be successful.”
Klopp is having more success than Allardyce, who has double the amount of losses since week eight in comparison to the energetic German. We like to imagine that the Sunderland boss spoke out of turn due to a late mustache feud with the normal one:
Further reports as to whether the two will have a mustache grow off or best hair competition are pending.
But with how his first jab at Klopp went, we’re doubtful that Allardyce wants any more of ‘the normal one’.
What are some of your favorite quotes from the ‘normal one’? Do you like him in the EPL mix? Who has a better mustache? Hash it out in the comments.
