Piers Morgan slammed for 'nasty' comment about Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool win Carabao Cup

Piers Morgan slammed for 'nasty' comment about Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool win Carabao Cup

Morgan was called out.

Piers Morgan has been criticised by fans for a comment aimed at Jurgen Klopp following Liverpool's win over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final.

After what was a relatively end-to-end contest for much of the 90 minutes between the two sides, Liverpool were far stronger in extra time and Virgil van Dijk headed in from a corner in the 118th minute to secure a 1-0 win.

The Reds had earlier seen another Van Dijk controversially ruled out for offside, while many felt Chelsea midfielder Moises Caicedo was lucky to avoid at least a yellow card for a game-ending tackle on Ryan Gravenberch.

Liverpool ended the game with five players under the age of 21 on the pitch, with Klopp's squad hugely depleted by injuries.

But all played a part in one of the most memorable cup final victories in Reds history - with Klopp even calling it 'the most special trophy I have ever won'.

It was no surprise, therefore, that the German boss was visibly emotional at full-time. However, he was quickly called out by Arsenal fan Morgan.

He wrote: "If winning the Carabao Cup makes you cry, it's definitely time to move on."

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool supporters - and, in fact, football fans from other clubs - were not too impressed with Morgan's comment.

One wrote: "There is absolutely no need to be nasty Piers, that is poor."

Another said: "Arsenal cannot even make it to the final, let alone win."

A third clarified: "C'mon Piers, you know exactly why Klopp is all teary-eyed. This is the start of the final leg for Klopp and Liverpool. It's started well for them and could be historic by season's end."

A fourth wrote: "Let's see how many Arteta wins by end of season..."

And a fifth fan, who watched Birmingham win the League Cup at Wembley in 2011, added: "Best day of my life being at Wembley watching us win the League Cup. The big teams' fans take it for granted."
