Jurgen Klopp has reacted to Sam Allardyce’s accusation that Liverpool’s new manager is to blame for their injuries.
Sunderland manager Allardyce had already called Klopp a “soft German” when he spoke out against Liverpool’s injuries.
“That is him [Klopp] asking his players to play a high tempo pressing game from the top end,” Allardyce told talkSPORT. “It’s great that the players have been able to carry it out, but I think it has kicked in now.
“I don’t think Jürgen has realised just how ferocious our league is at this period of time.”
Asked about Allardyce’s comments in his press conference before the Exeter FA Cup tie on Friday, Klopp was dismissive.
“I knew about the Premier League. It’s not a problem,” he said.
“Maybe he has too much time to think about Liverpool problems.
“I don’t have time to think about this. We know about our situation.
“But we have to react and that is what we try to do.”
We hate it when Mummy and Daddy fight in front of us.
Speaking regarding any January transfer plans after the latest spat of injuries, Klopp was fairly non-committal.
“The truth is that we have to react on the situation,” Klopp said.
“It is difficult enough to find quality players, who are in a difficult situation at their own clubs.
“We have our eyes open in the transfer market.”
