Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp “The Afcon is huge and it’s a big tournament”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp came under criticism when he referred to the Afcon in one of his interviews as a “little tournament”.
Many Africans and football fans criticized Jurgen Klopp for his choice of words.
In his recent prematch conference, he had a lot of praises for the tournament and congratulated Sadio Mane on his title triumph.
“We just thought it was quite right to let Sadio celebrate for as long as he wants. We all know that Sadio doesn’t drink a sip of alcohol, so it’s not that he ran through the city and doesn’t know where he wakes up. It was a huge thing. I saw the photos with the President of Senegal, the people in the streets, it’s a huge feat. It makes what people have done with my previous comments this year even funnier. It was the big tournament – we knew it before – and for Sadio, it was the biggest of his life or life so far. For him as a person, 100%, he took a huge step. He was a great player, a world–class player when he left here for the tournament, but he returns as a leader at a different level, I must say, “he said at a pre-Burley-Liverpool press conference.
