Klopp spoke to Amazon Prime presenter Marcus Buckland after Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United on Wednesday in the Premier League.


Buckland noted how Liverpool’s next match was a lunchtime game against Crystal Palace on Saturday in Klopp’s “favourite kick-off time.”

However, the joke did not go down at all well with the Liverpool manager who has regularly made it clear he is not a fan of playing early on Saturday after a Wednesday fixture.


Klopp said: “That’s really brave to make a joke about that.

“We go home, I don’t know exactly what time we will get home, we will arrive, maybe 1am-2am tonight, and then play again.


“We have two sessions. It is fine to recover and then we go again.

“Crystal Palace play tonight as well so it is really fine.

“I realise you don’t understand it as well and you work in football so why should I explain it again.

“If you make a joke out of that you are ignorant.”


Buckland then insisted he was not trying to be disrespectful but Klopp brushed his comment off.

“You were already,” he added.


“All good, you can say what you want, I cannot say what I want because that would be really different.”

Liverpool’s win over Sheffield United means the Reds are once again two points behind leaders Arsenal in the Premier League table.

Victory over Palace next time out would see Liverpool move to the top and pile pressure on the Gunners ahead of their trip to an in-form Aston Villa.

Unai Emery’s side are currently third after beating Manchester City 1-0 on Wednesday.
