Jurgen Klopp Named As The 'Moaner Of The Season'

Jurgen Klopp Named As The 'Moaner Of The Season'

Jurgen Klopp has been named the biggest moaner in the Premier League by Peter Crouch, but the former Liverpool striker means it as a compliment, honestly.


We all love a moan, especially when it's about work (well not me, I obviously love my job if any of my bosses happen to be reading this article), and football managers are no exception.

Whether it's about the referee, the state of the pitch or the opposition's temerity to find a way to win the game that doesn't fit in with their own plans to win.


Perhaps no one moans more than those managers at the top of the Premier League, they just aren't that used to losing after all, and that's why Crouch has picked Klopp as his top pick.

It's all pretty positive from the BT Sport pundit though. As he says, they're all at it, it's just the German is the 'biggest' of the lot, which is probably pretty fair.

"Well, all of them whinge – especially the top managers. Jurgen Klopp probably just edges it," Crouch wrote in his Daily Mail end of season awards article.


"The biggest characters are winners: Ferguson, Mourinho, Benitez were always like that. 

"It's always everybody else's fault when they lose, none of them accept defeat well. I don't think any of the current crop cover themselves in glory when they lose. 

"And that's because they are winners. It's cracking TV, isn't it? You hang on for their interviews."

It really would be quite difficult for the former Borussia Dortmund boss to have too many complaints about what Crouch is saying really.

Following his side's final day win over Wolves, which just about wasn't enough for them to win a second Premier League title in three years, the 54-year-old revealed he was annoyed with fans of Bruno Lage's team.

He complained that they were celebrating Manchester City's goals, down the M62 in Manchester, which stopped Liverpool winning the league.

For all he knows the fans were simply celebrating the fact that their Midlands' rivals Aston Villa had conceded three times, after all, Pep Guardiola did say EVERYONE was supporting Liverpool to win the league.


See, they're both good at moaning...
