Harry Redknapp Responds To Frank Lampard And Jurgen Klopp's Touchline Argument
Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard got into a heated debate on Wednesday as Liverpool beat Chelsea in their penultimate game of the season, and how uncle Harry Redknapp has stuck up for Lampard.
Liverpool lifting the Premier League trophy for the first time took most of the headlines on Wednesday but the tiff between the two managers was an interesting side plot.
Lampard could be seen telling the Premier League winning manager to 'f*ck off!' during their argument and afterwards the former Chelsea midfielder called his opponent arrogant.
Klopp hit back in response, saying, "You cannot hit me with something like that - or my bench with something like that - because we are not arrogant...
"But what he has to learn is to finish it with the final whistle and he didn't do that. Speaking after it like this is not OK. Frank has to learn. He has a lot of time to learn, he is a young coach. But he has to learn."
That response by the German hasn't gone down too well with former Spurs boss Redknapp. The 73-year-old, who is Lampard's uncle and gave the former West Ham youngster his senior debut for the Hammers, claimed the Chelsea boss 'doesn't need any tips.'

"Frank has been around professional football since he was a toddler," Redknapp told the Sun, "He doesn't need advice from anyone, although I've lots of respect for Klopp.
"Frank is very calm usually, he doesn't tend to get involved in things like this. For him to react like that, it must have been something to really wind him up."
"Frank respects Jurgen. And I know he will just want to shake hands on it if he can and move on," Redknapp added, "You don't play so long at the very top and then become a Premier League manager so quickly if you don't have brains.
"It would be good for them just to put it behind them."
On Sunday Lampard will be under even more pressure as the Blues need to get a positive result in order to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League, following the 5-3 loss to Liverpool.
A loss to Wolves and a point for Leicester City against Manchester United would see them drop out of the top four on the last day of the season.
