Jurgen Klopp hits back at Frank Lampard’s arrogant comment

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, finally Jurgen Klopp hits back at Frank Lampard’s for THAT now famous arrogant comment.

The spat started on Wednesday when during Chelsea’s 5-3 Premier League defeat at Liverpool, Lampard could be heard ranting on the touchline, and it’s was all captured on camera.

The Chelsea and Liverpool managers became embroiled in a huge row, with the video below going viral all over social media.

As the pyrotechnics went off outside Anfield, it became more heated in the technical area with Jurgen and Frank exchanging words after Mateo Kovacic went into Sadio Mane from behind to stop Senegal international’s run from the halfway line.


FL: ‘How is that a foul? There’s no foul there! [To Pep Lijnders] Sit down then’

JK: ‘Calm down, calm down… don’t talk to my No.2…’

FL: ‘No, no, if he’s going off at me, I’ll f****** say something!’

Unknown member of Liverpool bench: ‘It’s still a foul’

FL: ‘It’s not a f****** foul! I’m not asking you. Shut up.’

JK: ‘Hey!’

FL: ‘F*** off you as well! One title you’ve won and you’re f*****g giving it the big ‘un F*** off! [To Lee Mason] Tell them to have respect and sit down.’

LM: ‘Alright, Jurgen’

After the game, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard advised Liverpool not to get ‘too arrogant’ after winning the Premier League title.

Reflecting on the incident, Lampard told Sky Sports: “For me, it wasn’t a foul from Kovacic, and there were a lot of things that weren’t going our way. But I’ve not got a problem with Jurgen Klopp. The way he’s managed this team has been fantastic.

“Fair play to Liverpool Football Club, they’ve won the league, but also don’t get too arrogant with it. That was my point, but it’s done. In match play, you can get emotional and that was it.”

“It was an extraordinary game,” Lampard added. “Even when you say they threatened to run away with it, I felt we were in it. I could feel that in the way we were playing.

“It was a turnover and a great strike. A non-foul and then another strike that goes into the top corner. On the third, it was terrible from us defending the corner.

“But other than that in match play, we were OK. The first goal gave us hope and the lads showed great character but they’re a fantastic team and we can’t afford to make those mistakes.

“Some of the stuff I saw tonight from our team was resilience and quality. At 4-3, if we didn’t concede the fifth, I felt like we were coming. But it wasn’t to be.

“You can never be happy in defeat, but when you see the quality of the first two Liverpool goals, you understand what this place is and why they’re so successful at the moment.

“We’re building towards that, and we’re going to have to suck this in tonight as it’s where we want to get to one day.”

Jurgen Klopp has since said that the Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has a lot to ‘learn’ and shouldn’t have kept their ‘fuck off’ touchline row going on after Liverpool beat his team.

Klopp said: ‘You cannot hit me with something like that, and my bench, because we are not arrogant. Frank was obviously in a really competitive mood and I respect that a lot.

‘You can pretty much, from my point of view, in a situation like this say what you want. But after the game it’s completely over.

‘I’ve said a lot in the past, and because it’s pure emotion, we’re really involved, he came here for a win to make sure Champions League qualification.

‘What he has to learn is to finish it with the final whistle, and he didn’t do that. Speaking afterwards about it, that’s not okay.

‘Frank has to learn, he has a lot of time to learn, he’s a young coach. During the game, words used, no problem at all. We are not arrogant, we are pretty much the opposite of it.

‘In a moment like this, all arguments, you say something and you want to hurt the other person. That’s how it is in arguments, no problem with that. Final whistle, close the book. He didn’t do that and that’s what I don’t like.

‘By the way the only reason I speak now about it, is because he spoke afterwards, I think it makes sense to explain what I mean.’

Chelsea boss Lampard has also had his say, accusing the Liverpool bench of ‘crossing the line’.

He said: ‘I’ve seen the video, I was there. In terms of language used, I regret it because I’ve got two young daughters on social media,’ he said in the press conference before the Wolves game on Sunday.

‘In terms of passion to defend my team? No. I could have handled it differently but some of the reports were I was upset with the celebrations. Far from it. They can celebrate like every goal….

‘I’d have had a beer with Jurgen Klopp after the game but there were things on the bench, not from Klopp, that I felt crossed a line. I regret the language but we’ll move on.’
