Liverpool: Fans unhappy with Matt Le Tissier for criticising Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was left angry over the penalty given to Napoli in the Reds’ Champions League defeat in Italy.

Andrew Robertson was penalised for an apparent foul on Jose Callejon, even though contact on the Napoli man was minimal, and Klopp felt afterwards that Callejon jumped before there was any contact with the Liverpool left-back, as reported by Sky Sports.

One man who had little sympathy for the Liverpool manager was Matt Le Tissier, who took to Twitter to accuse Klopp of hypocrisy over his stance on the penalty decision [via @mattletiss7].

The Sky Sports pundit and former Southampton player has had his say on refereeing decisions involving Liverpool before, claiming on Twitter that the officials had a part to play in the Reds winning 3-1 at St Mary’s last season. [via Empire of the Kop]

Le Tissier also had a tongue-in-cheek dig at Liverpool when they sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, jokingly calling them “a feeder club” after the Reds had signed several players from Southampton in previous years. [via dreamteamfc.com]

These Liverpool fans on Twitter were left annoyed at Le Tissier’s comments about Klopp:
