So, who was to blame for Saturday’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Manchester United turning out to be a terrible spectacle: Jose Mourinho or Jurgen Klopp?
The two managers, unsurprisingly, pinned the blame on each other after the match.
"I think Man United came here for the point and they got it. We wanted three points and didn't get it,” Klopp, per the Mirror, said following the 0-0 draw. "I'm sure if we played like this, you could not do this at Liverpool. Obviously for Man United it is OK.”
Mourinho, on the other hand, believes Klopp’s team selection resulted in the match underwhelming in terms of entertainment.
"They played 90 minutes with (Emre) Can, (Jordan) Henderson and (Georginio) Wijnaldum and I thought playing at home, seven points behind us, they are going to change. They never did,” the Portuguese coach, also quoted by Mirror, said.
"They changed man-for-man in attack. They kept their three midfield players in the centre of the pitch and I had no chance to answer.”
The majority of football fans have blamed Mourinho, whose reputation for ‘parking the bus’ in big matches precedes him, for Saturday’s stalemate.
Liverpool fan's 'screenshot' goes viral
And one Liverpool supporter attempted to show Mourinho had parked the bus at Anfield by posting a screenshot from the match which appeared to show all 11 of United’s players camped deep in their own half with just two minutes on the clock.
A lot of people thought it was real
United fans soon noticed a problem with the image
The image racked up some serious retweets - over 1,000 at the time of writing - although eagle-eyed United fans soon noticed that all wasn’t as it seemed.
Because the Liverpool fan left the time on the screenshot, United fans looked back at the match footage to show if the image was accurate.
In fact, take a closer look at the image and you can clearly see that the United players’ shadows haven’t even been Photoshopped out.
United fans blast embarrassing tweet
United fans have subsequently exposed the image as fake.
Don’t believe everything you see on the internet, people.
