Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has hit back at football pundits, Gary Neville and Phil Neville for their persistent criticism of Liverpool goalkeeper, Loris Karius.
Gary Neville had earlier criticized Karius following Liverpool’s 4-3 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth and again after their 2-2 draw with West Ham.
Klopp has replied the brothers, questioning their suitability as pundits in a reference to Gary Neville’s failed managerial stint at Valencia which came to an end in March when the Valencia board sacked him.
“He showed he struggled with the job to judge players so why do we let him talk about players on TV?” Klopp said.
“The pundits, former players most of them, have forgotten completely how it felt when they got criticized.
“Especially the Neville brothers; the one who was the manager, he obviously should know that too much criticism never helps.
“But he is not interested in helping a Liverpool player I can imagine, but that makes things he says not make more sense.
“I don’t listen to them. I am pretty sure [fellow Sky pundit] Jamie Carragher doesn’t speak too positively about Manchester United players.
“Obviously the Neville brothers don’t like Liverpool. By the way, you can tell him I am not on Twitter so if he wants to tell me something Twitter doesn’t help.”
