Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool jumped from 11th to eighth in the Premier League table on Sunday afternoon after beating defending champions Manchester City 1-0 at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has apologised to Pep Guardiola after the Manchester City boss claimed coins were thrown at him on Sunday afternoon.
Liverpool defeated Guardiola’s side 1-0 at Anfield thanks to a stunning goal from Mohamed Salah. The result is huge for the Reds, as they were languishing in 11th and sitting 13 points behind City with a game in hand before Sunday afternoon. They’re now eighth.
Speaking at a press conference after the Premier League fixture, Guardiola complained: “Next time we will do it better. It didn’t get me. They try it again next year… All these coins – they tried but didn’t get it. They got the coach years ago.”
When asked about Guardiola’s comments, Klopp said: “Oh, horrible. I am sorry. I apologise
for that. I had no idea about it. It never should happen, never.”
Liverpool have also responded to the allegations. A statement read: “We are aware of an incident involving objects being thrown into the technical area at today’s game. This is totally unacceptable behaviour and not the standards of behaviour we expect at Anfield.
“This incident will be fully investigated using CCTV and those found guilty will be punished, including a lifetime ban from Anfield Stadium and a possible football banning order.”
