Section Of Jurgen Klopp's Interview With Geoff Shreeves For Sky Sports Was Not Aired

Part of Jurgen Klopp's interview with Sky Sports was not aired last night after he called out broadcasters.

The German was speaking after his side, despite being hit with a series of injuries, beat Leicester City 3-0 to go a club-record 64 games unbeaten at Anfield.

But Klopp was not all that pleased after seeing Naby Keita become the latest addition to a stacked injury list for Liverpool.

Having played twice for his Guinea in the international break, the former RB Leipzig midfielder was forced off with a hamstring injury and in a rant that did not make the cut, Klopp went in on Sky and BT and the ridiculous schedule this season.

"It was never about us when I spoke about it," Klopp told Geoff Shreeves.

Jurgen Klopp's List Of Excuses As Liverpool Manager Is Incredibly Long

"Sky and BT have to talk because if we keep playing Wednesday and Saturday at 12:30, I'm not sure if we will finish the season with 11 players.

"All the top six or seven. But I know you don't care.

"It's really difficult for the players, that's what is difficult. The rest is just a decision on a desk in an office. That sounds not difficult for me.

"People tell us to rotate - who? We have offensive players to rotate, yes, the rest are kids.

"Stop talking and start making decisions.

"If somebody tells me again about contracts I'll go really nuts. Contracts are not made for a Covid season. We all have to adapt. You adapt, we adapt, you're standing here with a facemask - we adapt to the situation. So everything changed.

"But the contract with the broadcasters is: 'No, we said we have this, so we keep this.' Everything changed, the whole world changed."

Klopp dropped some absolute truth bombs so it's no surprise his post-match interview was not shown in full.

He's been calling for five substitutions for quite some time now and is desperate to see some changes made after seeing Keita join the likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Thiago Alcantara, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Mo Salah (COVID) on the sidelines.
