After managing his 1,000th game in his managerial career, Jurgen Klopp's random dig at Arsene Wenger didn't go down well with Arsenal fans.

In liverpool's 0-0 draw with Chelsea, it marked a milestone in Jurgen Klopp's managerial career. While Liverpool may be struggling now, his achievements in football cannot be understated.

At Borussia Dortmund, he won back to back Bundesliga titles, while making them one of the most exciting teams in Europe in the Champions League, reaching the final in 2013.

At Liverpool, he completely transformed the club's fortunes. Jurgen Klopp won the Champions League in 2019, before ending their 32 year drought for a Premier League title. Last year almost saw Klopp guide Liverpool to an incredible quadruple.

While Klopp will always manage with a smile, it's currently his most challenging period as Liverpool manager. They are currently in eight place, eight points behind rivals Manchester United in fourth.

Jurgen Klopp's Random Dig At Wenger 

When asked on today's result in his 1,000th managerial game, Jurgen Klopp made reference to Arsene Wenger's 1000th game in charge, which ended in a 6-0 defeat away to Chelsea in 2014, with his rival Jose Mourinho in charge.

Arsene Wenger lost his 1,00th game in charge, so I'm glad that didn't happen."


While klopp probably didn't mean to mock or cause offence to Wenger, his remarks didn't sit well with Arsenal fans.

It was a game remembered for a complete collapse by Arsenal at the worst possible time for Arsenal. However, Arsenal still finished in the top four, while also ending their trophy drought.

Like Klopp, Wenger completely changed the fortunes in Arsenal. In his 22 years in charge of the club, he won three Premier League titles, including their 2004 invincible squad, as he managed an Arsenal team that challenged at the very top for majority of his time in charge.

It's only this season that Arsenal fans are reminded of Wenger's glory days, with Mikel Arteta's side five points clear at the top of the table.
