It’s shi*housery of the highest order from Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool fans blamed the length of the grass at the Etihad after their defeat to Man City but now they’ve deployed a petty tactic of their own.
Liverpool went into the break all square against Leicester with snow on the Anfield surface having caused problems for both sides in the first-half.
To ensure Liverpool wouldn’t suffer at the hands of the snow in the second 45 minutes, Klopp gave the Anfield ground staff specific orders at half-time.
Did you spot it?
On several occasions in the first-half players on both sides were left red faced after their passess failed to reach team-mates because of the heavy ground.
He instructed his minions to only clear the Kop end at Anfield – the end of the pitch Liverpool would be attacking in the second-half.
Poor old Leicester are now having to make do with attacking a side of the pitch completely covered in snow and it’s slowing all their attacks down.
Can you image if the Premier League title was really decided on such a small margin like this?
Even if you don’t want Liverpool to win the league, this is the type of pettiness we can all get behind.
