Jurgen Klopp was interviewed last week after the Reds beat Manchester City and he dropped an F-Bomb and has now explained why he believed it was suitable for the audience.

Liverpool beat Manchester City 4-3 last Sunday in what was easily the best game of the Premier League season for both the neutral and Reds fans, of course.

American supporters were treated to Jurgen Klopp appearing live on TV for an interview with NBC after the match and when asked for his reaction to the game, he replied in typical Klopp fashion.

Klopp said: “As a manager, you can say ‘OK, we could have done this better’ but then you can look at it as a football fan and say ‘what the f*** was that?!'”

After the presenter fell over himself to apologise to the audience, Klopp said: “I thought in America it was OK!”

Then, this week while collecting an award from Sky for Performance of the week, Klopp shifted blame from himself to US President Donald Trump, saying that he believed swearing was more acceptable under his reign.

As jovial and comfortable as ever, Klopp said: “I thought a lot of things are allowed meanwhile since Donald Trump is President there, but maybe not everything!”

Klopp’s swearing, while viewed as unbecoming by many I’m sure, has endeared him to a Liverpool fanbase that has really accepted the German and backed him to the hilt in the last 2 and a half years.
