Jurgen Klopp Apologises To Tony Pulis For What He Said On Anfield Touchline

A lot was made of Jurgen Klopp's comments on West Brom's style of play after they came away from Anfield with a 2-2 draw, and Tony Pulis even issued a sarcastic response ahead of this week's action, but now Liverpool's German manager wants to say that he is sorry.

At the pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool's trip to Watford, Klopp explained his regret at not shaking the hand of his opposing manager:

I can easily say sorry for everything I said during the game, because I'm very emotional and I think Tony Pulis is similar.

There were a few words, we were very close together, and for me it was not a big problem, but it was very intense and after the game I wanted to go to my team and really I forgot to shake hands. That's all.

It's no problem for me to say sorry, to shake hands and have a talk about whatever, I have big respect for his work no doubt about it. But in that situation it was not easy to switch on the lamps and then switch them off.


Rather than shake hands like most managers do after the final whistle (with exceptions of course), Klopp was determined to congratulate his players for securing a draw at the death. Hopefully he can manage to switch off the lamps when necessary in future.

We're expecting this one to have a line drawn under it, and everyone involved to move on.
