Many Liverpool fans blasted BBC Sport pundit Chris Sutton after he slated manager Jurgen Klopp and his personality change during the 2020/21 campaign.
A regular on BBC 5 Live, but writing in his Daily Mail column, the former Blackburn Rovers striker believed that the German tactician has lost his calm and collected character from recent years, describing him as going “from Mr Motivator to Mr Moaner.”
Klopp has been desperately unhappy with many aspects of this season, including VAR calls, injuries and scheduling of his squad’s games, which lead to an infamous row with BT Sport journalist Des Kelly.
Despite all of the problems he has encountered and with the severe setbacks to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Liverpool still top the Premier League – albeit on goal difference to Manchester United who have a game in hand.
Was Chris Sutton right to criticise Jurgen Klopp?
With this in mind, supporters were not impressed with the language that Sutton chose to use, making their feelings clear on social media.
Fans let rip at Sutton
“Couldn’t care less what Chris Sutton has to say”
“Don’t care for Chris Sutton’s opinion”
“Chris Sutton needs to try to be a manager.”
“Funny that coming for the guy who still hasn’t shut up about Rodgers”
“Who’s Chris Sutton? Never heard of the guy in my life”
“He’s up there with the worst of them in my opinion. Pundits that is.”
