Watch: Jurgen Klopp Gave The Most Salty Interview After 2-2 Draw With West Brom
As talented a manager is, and as charismatic a personality he can be, Jurgen Klopp really isn't the classiest when things aren't going his own way.
The German saw his Liverpool side drop two points against bottom club West Brom in the early kick-off at the Hawthorns, with the Baggies fighting back courtesy of late goals from Jake Livermore and Salomon Rondon after Danny Ings and Mo Salah had struck.
A frustrated Klopp was called in for interview duty by Sky Sports' and couldn't have been saltier if he tried.
WATCH: @LFC manager Jurgen Klopp was not happy that @WBA did not water the pitch at half-time! :sweat_drops:

He mocked reporter Patrick Davidson by saying, "You've proved you never played football before" and continued to come across as bitter when he blamed the dropped points on West Brom's "dry pitch" - as well as having a dig at their impending relegation to the Championship.
"It was a difficult game as the pitch got drier and drier," he said.
"West Brom decided not to water the pitch at half-time and that makes it difficult.
"It makes a massive difference. A team like West Brom do not need a wet pitch, they can do it next year playing on a dry pitch in the Championship."
And it was more of the same when he spoke to BBC Sport post-match...
Naturally, Klopp's comments have garnered plenty of reaction from fans on social media:

It's not your pitch Jurgen, if West Brom don't want to water it they don't have to. #Excuses #WBALIV #PremierLeague #Klopp

Jurgen Klopp is a dick!! It's got nothing to do with the pitch or the referee (who may as well of been wearing a Liverpool shirt) or the way we play. Let's face it you can't accept fucking up a 2 nil lead from a team that went out fighting!! #WBA

That comment from Jurgen Klopp about the dry pitch and WBA doing it next year in the championship is a petty cheap point to score#WBALIV

Liverpool will need to move on quickly as they host Roma in the Champions League semi-final first leg at Anfield on Tuesday.
