Antonio Conte says Jurgen Klopp is looking for an ‘apology or alibi’ after criticizing Tottenham’s style of play | Soccer News

Antonio Conte says Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was looking for an “excuse or an alibi” when he criticized Tottenham’s style of play after Saturday’s 1-1 draw.

Klopp said he could never coach Conte’s tactics at Anfield, even though Spurs had the best chance and could have won the game in the closing stages.

Conte fired back, saying: “Jurgen is a smart, very smart person.

“For the coach it’s not easy after the game, you have to try to keep a cool head. Sometimes it’s not easy and many times if you remember this season I was disappointed with the result and myself and my players.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp slammed Tottenham’s tactics after their 1-1 draw at Anfield on Saturday, saying: “I don’t like that kind of football.”

“I have respect for Jurgen and I know he respects me a lot and it’s a good opportunity for him and me to learn that during the game you should never talk about your opponent. It’s important to focus on your team.

“He was a bit frustrated after the game, but at the same time for every coach it’s important to learn to focus on his team, not the opponent. That means you want to come up with an excuse or an alibi because that your work was bad.”
