Klopp Accused Of Becoming Arrogant?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is one of those managers who is hard not to love, but a former Premier League chairman wonders if he has become slightly arrogant since his team's UEFA Champions League success last season.

Reports: Messi Could Be Banned From Playing Against English Clubs

Having won all eight of their Premier League matches so far in this campaign, Klopp's Reds are eight points clear at the top of the table, with their most recent win coming against Leicester City this past Saturday.

In his post-match interview, Klopp appeared frustrated with a certain tackle on superstar Mohamed Salah, something former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has picked apart, suggesting that the German has changed since his appointment in 2015.

"I've noticed a slight change in Jurgen Klopp, in the language and robustness of his position," he told talkSPORT.

"I thought his post-match interview (after Saturday's Leicester game) was very brusque and irritable, and I know that journalists can drive you mad with ridiculous questions, in his explanation of Salah and what happened to him.

"I didn't see him complain about what Trent Alexander-Arnold had done to molest a player by dragging his studs down the back of his Achilles.

"He was very aggressive and on the front foot about what happened to Salah.

"I'm just wondering, part and parcel of the appeal of Klopp that's gotten him away with certain things over the last two and a half years – before he won the Champions League he was a perennial final loser for Liverpool – and I'm now looking at him thinking, 'you have now won something for Liverpool, are you changing your demeanour?'

"There was a mesmeric million-dollar smile that brought all aspects of the media to be a universal admirer of Klopp. But is he changing? Is he becoming infected by this disease of arrogance that lots of football managers get?"
