Jurgen Klopp criticises Anfield atmosphere in press conference, he's not happy

Jurgen Klopp criticises Anfield atmosphere in press conference, he's not happy

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was "not overly happy" with the atmosphere inside Anfield during their EFL Cup clash against West Ham.

Jurgen Klopp said it was a "joy" to watch his Liverpool side play in their 5-1 win over West Ham, but slammed the Anfield atmosphere after exchanging words with fans.

The Reds secured their place in the EFL Cup semi-final on Wednesday night with a convincing victory.

Goals from Dominik Szoboszlai, Cody Gakpo, Mohamed Salah and Curtis Jones [2] set up a clash against Fulham in the last four.

But despite dominating for large spells, Klopp was "not overly happy" with the atmosphere behind him. In fact, he urged supporters to make more noise when they come up against Arsenal on Saturday.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, the German manager delivered a scathing assessment of the Anfield atmosphere, as seen below.

He said: “I was not overly happy with the atmosphere behind me. I ask people “what do you want?” so we change a lot of things we dominate West Ham like crazy, we miss chances.

“I would be in the stands, I would be on my toes, 100 percent. If the Manchester United game was that bad that we have to say “oh sorry” that we did not smash them. We need Anfield on Saturday.

“From the first second without me having an argument with the opposition coach, we need you from the first second! If it is too much football in December, I do not know we have to play it as well”

“If you are not in the right shape, give your ticket to somebody else."

Klopp's comments come just days after Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana said he "felt nothing" after being asked about the atmosphere inside one of England's most iconic stadiums.

Despite creating 23 more chances than United on Sunday, the mood inside Anfield was flat. Gary Neville, who was on commentary duty for Sky Sports, noticed how quiet it was during the game.

“I have to say, this is by far the worst atmosphere I’ve ever seen at Anfield for a Manchester United game," the former United full-back said.

"It’s really, really quiet so far, other than the first five minutes where they were up for it."

Over the years Anfield has been renowned for having one of the most famous atmosphere in world football, never mind the Premier League.

Klopp, however, is clearly unhappy with the current situation. He will hoping for a resurgence when Liverpool host Premier League leaders Arsenal on December 23.
