Jurgen Klopp throws shade at Manchester United

Jurgen Klopp took one last dig at Manchester United as he departed Liverpool for the final time this Tuesday night. The German manager was attending a Q and A event in Liverpool that had a crowd of over 10,000 people.

Klopp shared his thoughts on a lot of things around the Premier League. Most of all, he was thankful that he got to build his team and manage under the Fenway Sports Group. The German manager believes he was lucky to get owners who don’t believe in sacking people too often.

Klopp also took his chance to shed light on Manchester United while talking about managers being their players’ most important supporters. Let’s have a look at what he had to say about United’s treatment of their £80m star. (h/t The Standard)

“If the whole world loses trust and faith in the player, the manager has to be the one behind the player,”

“I cannot just buy into that ‘he’s useless’, like other clubs did by the way – buying a player for £80million and then sending him out on loan!”

In his remark, Klopp was talking about Manchester United star, Jadon Sancho. The 24-year-old winger had a public falling out with the Red Devils’ manager, Erik ten Hag. As a result, the Dutchman cut the English winger from the first team.

Sancho then went on to spend four months on the sidelines before Borussia Dortmund came knocking. The 24-year-old was allowed to join his former club on a loan move and will now be playing in the Champions League finals this weekend.

Klopp believes Sancho should've been treated better.

It would be quite a comeback for Sancho if the German side can beat La Liga giants Real Madrid to win the UCL. Moreover, it would make the young star’s value skyrocket since he has been such an important player throughout Dortmund’s campaign.

If Manchester United had treated him better, he could have had that impact on the Old Trafford squad.
