"He can't hide it anymore": Twitter reacts to bold Jürgen Klopp threat

Wednesday night saw Liverpool beat Arsenal on penalties in the EFL Cup fourth round. It was a game for the ages as the Reds were two goals behind the visitors on two occasions yet somehow the young lads turned the match on its head. The game finished 5-5 in normal time before Liverpool won 5-4 on penalties with local lad Curtis Jones converting the vital spot kick. After the game Jürgen Klopp made the bold threat that he will have to withdraw from the League Cup if the Reds are not given an appropriate date for the quarter finals.

Speaking after the game, as reported by the Liverpool ECHO, Klopp said: “if they don’t find a proper date for us, then we cannot play the next round.”

The Club World Cup semi finals are on the 18th of December, the EFL Cup quarters are scheduled for the 17th and 18th. Twitter has reacted the the Klopp threat to withdraw.

One fan found it unbelievable that we went through such a thrilling game just to withdraw.

Another supporter thought it was great that the gaffer is focusing on the bigger tournament out of the two.

Whilst these fans believe the Klopp threat to withdraw comes as no surprise given the conspiracy theories surrounding the substitution of Pedro Chirivella against MK Dons.

An Arsenal supporter joked that the Liverpool gaffer was going out of his way to make sure his side didn’t progress but Unai Emery wouldn’t stand for it.

Whilst a Kopite helpfully pointed out that Watford would be happy to oblige us by playing us when it doesn’t matter.
