James McClean Was Less Than Impressed With Jurgen Klopp's Conduct After Anfield Draw

James McClean Was Less Than Impressed With Jurgen Klopp's Conduct After Anfield Draw
By Mikey Traynor

Jurgen Klopp experienced the full range of emotion as his side grabbed a late equaliser at home to West Brom last Sunday.

The German manager went from fuming anger directed at the West Brom bench, to elation as Divock Origi's deflected effort earned a point for Liverpool, but Republic of Ireland international James McClean was not best pleased by how Klopp handled himself following the full time whistle.

A hard challenge from Craig Gardner resulted in a nasty looking injury for Dejan Lovren, and Klopp was incensed. After having a go at the West Brom bench, Klopp snubbed Tony Pulis' handshake at full-time (something he has since admitted his regret over), and that didn't sit well with McClean:

I’ve got a lot of respect for the man because he done a great job at Dortmund but I think he is a bit of an idiot to be honest on the game on Sunday.

Win, lose or draw you have got to be respectful.

So that's a January move to Anfield off the cards for James then.

McClean has come under scrutiny in recent weeks thanks to a hard tackle he put in on Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele earlier in the month, even prompting his own manager to come out and admit that the Derry man has to be more careful, but it is definitely encouraging for Irish fans to see him playing well, and more importantly regularly, in the Premier League ahead of Euro 2016.
