Fulham had a cheeky dig at Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on social media and their comment clearly hit a former Red.
The Merseysiders were held to a 2-2 draw by newly promoted Fulham, with last year’s title contenders falling behind twice in the clash.
But leaving west London with just a point wasn’t the only thing Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was unhappy about.
“The attitude was not the right one at first, then we wanted to fight back, but it’s not easy anymore,” he said.
Then the German added: “The pitch was dry, stuff like that.”
But unlike Craven Cottage territory, it turns out Fulham’s Twitter admin has a far from dry sense of humor as they pounced on Klopp’s post-match comments to make a cheeky dig.
“The grass at Craven Cottage looked absolutely lush yesterday,” the club posted alongside a photo of the sprinklers preparing for the pitch game at Craven Cottage.
But as Fulham fans and neutrals let Saturday’s opponents down, former Liverpool star Jose Enrique hit back on behalf of his former club.
