Liverpool's Klopp responds to Lampard 'arrogant claims: He needs to learn

Liverpool's Klopp responds to Lampard 'arrogant claims: He needs to learn”

"You can not hit me and my bench with something like that because we are not arrogant", said Klopp.

"I haven't contacted Liverpool, I shook Jurgen Klopp's hand at the end and said, "well done" and I would easily have sat and had a beer with him and congratulated him on what an incredible job he has done", said Lampard.

Speaking in a news conference ahead of Sunday's Premier League visit of Wolves, Lampard sought to clarify his comments after video of the touchline fracas went viral on social media.

Chelsea's English head coach Frank Lampard is seen on the touchline before the start of the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on July 22, 2020.

"Frank was obviously in a really competitive mood and I respect that a lot".

"He came here to win the game or get the point to get Chelsea's Champions League qualification". But at the final whistle, all the things he said ... we are not arrogant. We aren't arrogant, we are pretty much the opposite, but in a moment like this with arguments, you say something you want to hurt the other person.

"Final whistle, close the book and he didn't do that and that's what I don't like".

Speaking after the match, Lampard told the media (via the Metro): "I've got no problem with Jurgen Klopp".

Newly-crowned Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year Jordan Henderson and defender Joel Matip again miss out.

Podence can play on either wing but if the manager does decide to name him in the starting line-up then it would be Jota who will make way for him while Adama Traore operates on the right flank. If you want to have a guy who has faught his way through to become one of the best players in the league and this year everybody acknowledged that. "He helped me from the first day and I tried to help him as well". "I felt it so massively that things came together". We wanted to get this position to be able to go to Leicester and having to beat them and we're not going to change our approach. But Klopp warned the chasing pack that Liverpool are desperate for further success and will be "greedy" for more trophies.

Liverpool travel to St James' Park on Sunday for their final match of the season to cap a remarkable 13 month-spell where they have won the Champions League and the Premier League title.

"We'll approach the game as we always do and that is to try and win", he said. "I regret the language and move on".
