Fans can’t believe ‘delusional’ Jurgen Klopp interview after Liverpool’s dismal defeat against Brentford
| Last updated
Fans can’t quite believe Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s epic rant after his side’s dismal 3-1 defeat by Brentford.
The Bees were ahead inside 20 minutes after a corner was deflected into his own net by Ibrahima Konate. Yoane Wissa made it 2-0 three minutes before half time with a brilliant header.
At the start of the second half, Klopp made three changes as he looked to galvanise his side. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain got Liverpool back into the match in the 50th minute but their hopes were dashed by Bryan Mbeumo, who wrapped up the 3-1 victory in the 84th minute.
After the match, Klopp showed his discontent over some of the decisions during the match. The German was not happy with the third goal, claiming Konate was fouled before Mbeumo netted.
He said: “The third goal should not be a goal, easy as that! Trying to talk to the officials about it is like trying to talk to my microwave.”
Klopp added that Brentford managed to control the game due to the way the referee whistled the match.
He added: “Brentford could dictate the game because of how it got whistled.
“They stretched the rules. That’s why it’s really difficult. VAR hides behind the phrase ‘not clear and obvious’. The referee needs to explain that.”
Klopp continued: “We had a meeting before the season. The behaviour in the box, the ref will whistle. They don’t do it. I don’t expect anything in our favour. There’s a reason Brentford are so successful with offensive set pieces and not defensive set pieces.”
“The third goal I really cannot respect.”

Fans were quick to react to the Liverpool boss’ comments.
One said: “Was Klopp at a different game? Why has he become so delusional?”
Another tweeted: “He’s always blaming someone.”
A third fan added: “That’s never a foul. Well beaten by far the better side. Does this bloke ever lose without an excuse?”
Someone else wrote: “The only time he don't complain is when they win.”
After the latest setback, Liverpool will take on Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend as they begin the defence of their FA Cup.
