London: West Brom star footballer James McClean has described Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp as ‘an idiot’ following a 2-2 draw at Anfield in their Premier League match.

Klopp refused to shake hands with Baggies boss Tony Pulis and subsequently criticised his opponents’ style of play despite securing a last gasp equaliser through Divock Origi’s deflected strike.

Reflecting on the incident, McClean said he had respect for Klopp because of what he had done at Dortmund but branded him as ‘an idiot’, saying that one has got to be respectful irrespective of the result, the Mirror reported.

Ninth placed Liverpool will next take on Watford on Sunday. (ANI)
