Football fan has produced a Twitter thread on Jurgen Klopp's excuses at Liverpool

Brighton & Hove Albion v Liverpool FC - Premier League

The frustration was visibly building for Jurgen Klopp during their draw with Leicester City this week.

Liverpool were looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points, having watched Manchester City slump to defeat against Newcastle United.

However, despite leading through Sadio Mane after just three minutes, Harry Maguire responded before half-time to ensure the points were shared on Merseyside.

Numerous clips on BT Sport showed Klopp getting more and more angry with his players as they pushed for a winner during the second-half.

Yet few clearcut chances were forthcoming and Naby Keita had a penalty shout turned down, meaning that all of Klopp's animated reactions on the touchline were in vain.

Klopp's comments on the snow

As far as the German was concerned, though, the weather was guilty of interfering with the game and he complained about the snow on the Anfield pitch in his post-match interview.

Klopp explained to the media: "The pitch was difficult and we needed to speed it up in the final third. Our counter-attacks in the opening moments were defended more by the pitch than our opponents!"

It's not the first time that Klopp has pointed the finger at mother nature this season, expressing his frustration with wind after their FA Cup elimination at Wolverhampton Wanderers.


Twitter thread of Klopp's excuses

One football fan in particular has started to notice this pattern with Klopp after games and it seems there are countless examples of him offering question excuses.

Twitter user 'Ruining football' decided to compile all of the quotes in one place, taking screenshots of media outlets reporting the comments and bringing them together in a 10-tweet thread.

Despite having a modest following of around 600 people, they've managed to garner over 1,000 retweets and 'likes' in the space of a few hours. It's fair to say supporters are finding it funny.

Fans knew that Klopp had mustered some bizarre excuses across his career, but the evidence really starts to pile up when you put it like that.

Solely drawing on case studies from Klopp's time with Liverpool, the thread sees him blame everything from the Hawthorn's pitch being too dry and BT Sport allegedly trying to shorten a game. 


That's not to mention the countless times he's passed comment on the wind affecting Liverpool's performance.

Admittedly, some of the cases are a little harsh and Klopp isn't necessarily shovelling all the blame on meteorology, but it's no surprise fans are starting to chuckle after so many instances.

The Met office should brace themselves for complaints if Liverpool miss out on the league.
