Jurgen Klopp denies xenophobic accusations
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has rejected talks that his comments about the financial power of clubs owned by the Gulf states were xenophobic
The German gaffer was dismissed in their premier league encounter with Man City and has been banned by the FA for improper behaviour.
Klopp has looked to clarify himself
“I don’t feel, in this specific case, I don’t feel it at all,” Klopp said.
“I know myself. And you cannot hit me with something which is miles away from my personality. If I was – I cannot remember the word [xenophobic] – like this I would hate it. I would hate myself for being like this.
“I have said a lot of times things that were a little bit open for misunderstanding, I know that. It was not intentionally; just sometimes you say things and you think: ‘Oh my God, it can be interpreted like this!’ But this is not one of these moments.”
