Jurgen Klopp Blames The Wind Yet Again As Liverpool Drop Points In Merseyside Derby
You may remember that Klopp blamed the wind for the 2-0 FA Cup defeat at the hands of Wolves in January and he’s been at it again tonight.
Mere seconds into his post-match interview with Patrick Davison of Sky Sports, Klopp started talking about the impact the wind had on his team’s performance and subsequent dropping of points.
“It was a difficult game. I know people don’t like it but the wind came from different directions, the ball was in the air a lot,” the Liverpool manager said.

Social media was in utter hysterics at Klopp well and truly clutching at straws:
The wind. The actual wind. Jurgen Klopp has actually blamed the WIND for dropping MORE points.

Klopp, as talented a manager as he is, is developing a reputation for bizarre excuses.
In last week’s 0-0 draw at Old Trafford, he genuinely pin-pointed Manchester United’s trio of first-half injuries for disrupting his team’s rhythm.
He said: “If we had carried on like we started we could have won but we lost out rhythm with the injuries.
“If United had played like they have been, with the same players, it would have been a different game. They would have known what they were doing and so would we.”
