- Liverpool have been sent out of the English FA Cup by Wolverhampton Wanderers
- The Reds' manager Jurgen Klopp stated that the wind affected his players in their 2-1 defeat
- Klopp has been mocked by football fans who were not happy with the excuse he gave
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has been slammed by football fans for the statement he made after his wards' defeat against Wolves in the English FA Cup third round.
After their defeat against Premier League champions Manchester City, Liverpool fans thought their players would soar against Wolves, but they have crashed out of the FA Cup.
Jurgen Klopp decided to make nine changes to the starting XI that lost to Manchester City last Thursday at the Etihad stadium.
But despite an unimpressive performance from his players against Wolves, Jurgen Klopp refused to blame them claiming they had no rhythm.
And the excuse that made many football fans to mock Klopp was when he said that the wind also affected his players against Wolves.
"You know they can’t have rhythm. Div, can he have rhythm? Not really. Daniel? Maybe, a bit more. Alberto? No rhythm.
“We had a few players who were ill after the Man City game. The wind didn’t help as players struggled to control the ball,'' Klopp said.
