Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp commented on former Aston Villa and England player Gabriel Agbonlahor after he insulted United for losing 4-0 to Brentford. The manager said he almost called a radio phone-in after hearing the former player’s “unbelievable” comments on Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat at Brentford.
Jurgen Klopp Agbonlahor for Speaking Ill of Manchester United
The former Aston Villa forward called Manchester United “a shambles.” Jurgen Klopp said: ”What he said about United, I was close to calling in and telling him, ‘you have forgotten completely that you have been a player.”
The 35-year-old was in the Aston Villa side that lost 6-0 at home to Liverpool in February 2016, with Villa ultimately relegated to the Championship that season. The German also said: ”He lost against us 6-0 in my first year [at Liverpool].”
“I couldn’t remember him as a ‘mentality monster’ on the pitch.” “It was unbelievable. If ex-players are going already like this, you can imagine how everything else is going.”
Agbonlahor responded to Klopp by tweeting a picture of when he scored the only goal in Villa’s 1-0 win at Anfield in September 2014.
