Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp couldn’t hide his delight when informed that ‘LiVARpool’ was trending on X, formerly Twitter, in recent days.
Many feared the German had finally run out of excuses for his side’s inability to dethrone perennial title-holders Manchester City but this latest social media trend has been like manna from heaven for the Reds boss.
It comes following a report by ESPN which claims Liverpool have been affected by the most errors made by VAR (4) so far this season.
This was in stark contrast to every other Premier League side who astonishingly have NEVER had a VAR decision go against them. Klopp recently cited a lack of energy as the reason he was leaving Anfield in the summer, but the former Dortmund coach looked totally reinvigorated when informed of the stat.
‘115 FFP charges, BT Sports, Alisson’s cold feet. You name it, I’ve used it’, a grinning Klopp told Paddy Power News.
‘I was scraping the barrel when I somehow blamed Chris Wilder but this LiVARpool thing on X? Wow. Thank you, Elon Musk. Thank you’, he said while blowing kisses at the camera.
When asked how the club would respond in the wake of ESPN’s findings, the 56-year-old replied:
‘I can say immediately, and probably some people don’t want me to say it, not as the manager of Liverpool but much more as a football person, I think the only outcome should be a replay of all four games. That’s how it is. It probably will not happen’.
However, in a stunning twist, the Premier League bowed to Klopp’s demands and agreed to replay all four fixtures in the coming weeks.
The Champions League winner was overjoyed by the news until informed they were all Saturday 12.30pm kick-offs.
‘Damn you, Des Kelly. Damn you to hell’, sobbed Klopp as he dropped to his knees.
