Gary Lineker beat up a “deaf and dumb” Jürgen Klopp after the Liverpool manager cursed criticism of the European Super League on Saturday afternoon.

The German gave an interview to British broadcaster BT Sport after the game.

Perhaps angry when his side conceded an equalizer for Newcastle in the 95th minute, Klopp was asked whether Anfield had been “ruined” by the decision to join the breakaway competition.

He took a second to gather his thoughts, then said, “The thing was, yes, our owners made a mistake. We’ve said it enough times, they know.”

“You all have to calm down. It gets people going. ”“ Nobody wanted it. In any case. But now we want to take care of it. ”A passionate Jürgen Klopp on dealing with and the progress from the European Super League .twitter.com / 2xMFzfIPUt

“What I didn’t like at the moment … the Leeds supporters are a good example. They are no better than others or worse than others, but they attacked us,” Klopp said of protests outside Elland Road Liverpool could only achieve a 1-1 draw on Monday evening.

“We’re just the face of the club. We didn’t even know about it. It’s important that we don’t forget that.”

“It wasn’t Liverpool Football Club, it was a representative of Liverpool Football Club. We have to make the difference, that’s really very important,” said Klopp.

“I’ve seen the pictures for the past few days, including last night at Arsenal and Chelsea. I really think you all need to calm down.

“The whole time there are three journalists who talk about it all day. It’s getting people down. We’re still in a pandemic,” complained Klopp.

A handful of owners are trying to tear our game apart and may try again. We’re just supposed to calm down and move on. Huge admirer of Klopp, but he’s spectacularly deaf here. It would be a lot uglier today without the fans of our beautiful game. https://t.co/rRH40Kal0p

“People are out there with no face masks screaming their opinions. Experts need to calm down.

“Yeah, we didn’t mean it, but let’s deal with it. People, they’ve learned their lessons, 100 percent.

“So just relax a bit, we have to carry on. We always have to do that,” said Klopp.

But the ex-England legend and expert Lineker insulted the comments and immediately went to Twitter to address them.

Come from the high horse Gary. BT and Sky have been robbing people for years and you get paid well. Super League is wrong, but this idea of ​​Sky and BT taking care of the beautiful game is fun

“A handful of owners are trying to tear our game apart and may try again. We’re just supposed to calm down and move on,” he wrote.

“A great admirer of Klopp, but he’s spectacularly deaf here. Without the fans of our beautiful game it would be much uglier today,” said Lineker.

Klopp’s recent outbreak, an early critic of the ESL project whose remarks after the bombshell was announced on Sunday night helped fuel the widespread backlash that eventually led to a derailment, is certainly an astonishing change of direction.

But Lineker was also pulled up by fans who accused him of hypocrisy.

“Get off the high horse, Gary,” advised a punter.

“BT and Sky [have been] Robbing people for years and getting paid well. [The] Super League is wrong, but the idea that Sky and BT take care of the beautiful game is fun, “he said.

“Don’t you work for the channel that kept CL from free TV and charge huge sums to watch games like this one today?” Lineker was asked.

He’s looking for his club, Gary. He knows the problem is much bigger than just his employers. Karen Brady called for a point deduction when she advocated null and void to avoid relegation? Football full of selfishness. This is today’s game.
