Jurgen Klopp vs Roy Keane: Liverpool boss takes on Manchester United legend over ‘sloppy’ comment after Ars thumbnail

Jurgen Klopp took Roy Keane to task after Liverpool defeated Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield. The Reds ended the 100% start made by Mikel Arteta’s men thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and new signing Diogo Jota. After seeing off Leeds and Chelsea already this season, few would have forgiven Klopp for being extremely buoyant during his post-match interview with Sky Sports. Sky Sports Jurgen Klopp was not happy with Roy Keane calling Liverpool ‘sloppy’ However, former Manchester United captain Keane insisted the Premier League champions had been ‘sloppy’ at moments during the first three games of their title defence. And the German was left exasperated and somewhat surprised at this analysis. Klopp said: “Did Mr Keane say it was a sloppy performance? Maybe he is speaking about another game “Nothing was sloppy. It was absolutely exceptional. From the first second, we were dominant, against a team in form. Sky Sports Keane called the German ‘sensitive’ after the awkward interview concluded “The football we played tonight was exceptional. About this game, nothing bad to say. It was the opposite of sloppy.” Keane backtracked on his sloppy comments and admitted he had said ‘sloppy moments but I’ve been giving the club nothing but praise.’ Klopp added: “In the first half we played a super game, but were 1-0 down, how does that happen? “Imagine if we had not won it. We could have scored more goals, yes. Of course there is some risk with the high line, but that’s what we try.” Getty Images Lacazette was devastated on the bench afterwards After the interview had concluded, Keane said: “He’s very sensitive isn’t he? Jesus.” Alexandre Lacazette had been gifted the opener after a Robertson error. If the France international’s finish from Arsenal’s first shot on target in the 25th minute was not that convincing his performance in two second-half one-on-ones – one latterly flagged offside – with Alisson Becker was less so and he rightly covered his face with his shirt when taking his seat on the bench after being substituted 15 minutes from time. Had he been sharper Liverpool may have had more of a problem but they dominated for long periods – having 21 shots to their opponents four – and with better finishing of their own would have been comfortable long before Jota made the game safe in the 88th minute.
