The Sunderland fans in The Transfer Tavern are gathered around the jukebox selecting some tunes and discussing comments made by their manager about a rival Premier League boss.
Allardyce believes that Klopp has not yet realised how ferocious nature of the Premier League and that players will pick up injuries due to the intense nature of the competition.
Since Klopp has taken over at Anfield the club have had a torrid time with injuries losing 10 players and six of those through hamstring problems. Speaking to Talksport about Klopp and his injury woes, Allardyce said:
“That is him asking his players to play a high tempo pressing game from the top end. It’s great that the players have been able to carry it out but I think it has kicked in now.”
“I don’t think Jurgen realised how ferocious our league is at this period of time and because he asked for that extra high energy, that extra ten yards, these lads are fatiguing now with so many games in such a short period of time and are picking up these muscle strains.”
“They are highly trained athletes now more than ever before and they become more susceptible to injury by the amount of work they do in a game now.”
The Sunderland fans in The Transfer Tavern think the Liverpool boss should just get used to players getting injures during this time of year, and don’t really care about the goings on at Anfield when their are more pressing times ahead at their own club.
Sunderland fans, is Allardyce wrong to start picking at Klopp? Let us know in the comments below!
