‘Football’s worst excuses’: Chris Sutton reacts to what he’s heard from Liverpool man

Chris Sutton has slammed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp following his complaints about the state of Fulham’s pitch.

Klopp’s side began their Premier League campaign with a 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Following the game, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp slammed the playing conditions in West London, claiming the pitch was too dry.

And, according to Sutton, the Reds manager is simply making up excuses to cover up his team’s inadequacy on the day.

He said: “Jurgen Klopp suggesting Liverpool were held back by a dry pitch at Fulham is up there with football’s worst excuses. Like many bosses, Klopp is armed with a list of excuses when things don’t go his team’s way. Sometimes, a head coach should just say it as it is.”

It remains to be seen whether the Liverpool manager meant what he said.

The German is one of the best man-managers in football and part of that is defending his team against criticism.

So it’s entirely possible that Klopp diverted attention away from Liverpool’s performance in order to shield them from criticism, instead throwing himself in front of the bus.

Klopp’s side, who are already two points behind Manchester City, return to Premier League action next Monday at home against Crystal Palace.
