Warning!!! – Klopp Wants Man Utd to stop Defending, Says a big team are always attack minded


Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp says Manchester United’s defensive style is detrimental to football, and a big team shouldn’t adopt such style, after Ole played with a back five in the game.

The Reds only had 32 per cent possession of the ball during the match as they defended for long periods after Marcus Rashford gave them a first-half lead.

“[Man Utd’s style] doesn’t frustrate me,” he said post-match. “I’m not the person who should be concerned about this style.


“It’s just a fact that when we come here, they just defend. It’s OK, no criticism, it’s just a fact.

“When United plays Liverpool, usually you’d think both teams would play like this, would try. We are the one team everyone is on their toes when United play us.

“With the quality they have, the way they set up is really difficult.

“It’s no excuse. I thought we could do better today. But you cannot play each team like this.”
