Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, has come to the defence of their biggest rivals, Man United. Jürgen’s comments are in response to the opinions voiced by Gabby Agbonlahor after they lost 4-0 to Brentford.
On the game, Gabby said:
“They’re not United. They’re not working for each other, like strangers.
“Shambles kit, shambles club.”

Gabby is brutal with his comments about the team’s performance on the pitch.
His comments weren’t far from the truth. United have started poorly this season, and there are big doubts about a lot of their players.
Eric ten Hag has only had two competitive games this season, but it looks like he’s in for a long season.

Speaking about Gabby, Klopp recalls his Liverpool side beating Gabby’s Aston Villa 6-0. Klopp spoke about the lack of mentality from Gabby during that game, while reminding Gabby he was once a player too.
Not content with leaving it there, Gabby fired back on Instagram.
