"Controversial nonsense": Twitter laughs off Jordan claims about Klopp

There is no greater football manager than Jürgen Klopp. The German has been crowned the FIFA Coach of the Year to cement his status as the best of the best. Whilst his ability is not lost on Crystal Palace’s ex-Chairman, Simon Jordan has accused Jürgen Klopp of being willing to leave as soon as something better comes along.

Klopp has transformed Liverpool top to bottom since arrival in 2015.

The German cuts a messianic figure in the Anfield dugout, with Kopites hailing him for finally restoring the club to former glories.

Times were dark under Brendan Rodgers after he fell at the final hurdle in the 2013/14 season.

Since taking over Jürgen has been at the centre of an overhaul of transfer policy as well as a reconnection between the club and the fans.

Simon Jordan doesn’t believe Jürgen Klopp is as connected to the club as he appears, the businessman told talkSPORT:

My Revenge On Ben Foster

“Believe me, as sure as day follows night, as soon as a better opportunity than Liverpool comes along for him, he’ll be off – that’s what football managers do.”

Twitter has laughed off his wild claims.

One listener questioned whether they had any compos mentis pundits to invite on.

It was quickly pointed out that Jordan didn’t even do his research.

Another supporter questioned how many jobs are better than the one he has at the moment.

Even a Manchester United fan pointed out the absurdity of Simon Jordan’s claims.

This listener pointed out that a “new challenge” isn’t out of the question but leaving for something better certainly is.

One fan wrote off Jordan’s comments as purposely inflammatory.
