Manchester United great Roy Keane rarely came off second best in a tackle but the outspoken TV pundit was forced to backtrack after Jurgen Klopp took him to task for labeling Liverpool “ sloppy” following Monday ’ s 3- 1 win over Arsenal.
Klopp jumped on Keane ’s observation after his team’s victory , which maintained the champions’ 100 percent record after three games .
“ Did I hear right ? Mr Keane said we had a sloppy performance tonight ? Did he say that ?” said Klopp .
Former United and Republic of Ireland captain Keane did not address the question directly .
“ I think they gave up one or two opportunities , which he will be disappointed with , ” said the 49 – year – old .
Klopp , who won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2019 and their first Premier League title last season , pressed on.
“ Did he say that it was sloppy? I want to hear it , ” said the 53- year – old German. “ I am not sure I heard it right and maybe he was speaking about another game .
“ It cannot be this game . Sorry , that is an incredible description of this game . ”
Klopp described his team ’s performance against in – form Arsenal as “ exceptional ” .
“ This game tonight — there is nothing bad to say , ” said Klopp . “ It was the opposite of sloppy. ”
Keane , unusually for him , sought to calm the situation .
“ You might have misheard me , ” he said . “ There were sloppy moments but I think you have been outstanding and I have been giving the club nothing but praise.
“ I am not sure you heard me correctly, you need to hear the rest of it . ”
Klopp laughed and said : “ I will, 100 percent . ”
Keane, though, had the last laugh after the Liverpool boss had left the interview.
“ Very sensitive , isn’t he ? Imagine if he’ d lost.

In the sixth minute of play, Real Madrid kept possession wonderfully well, showing a great deal of patience in their pursuit of an opening goal and it was their best move of the season.

Karim Benzema laid on an inch-perfect pass to the onrushing South American, who would then place a fine side-footed shot past Neto in the Barcelona goal. The move itself passed through all areas of the pitch, but it was Toni Kroos who unlocked the defence as Sergio Ramos dealt with forward pressure from Lionel Messi.

Ramos laid the ball to Nacho, who fired the ball to Benzema who then made the decisive assist, with the French forward showing remarkable vision to see Valverde’s run.

With this goal, the Uruguayan is now Los Blancos’ second highest scorer this term with two goals, and is already showing a greater aptitude for getting forward and contributing than he did in his debut campaign.

download 8 1 Ben White to Liverpool transfer rumour addressed by Brighton boss Graham Potter

White, 23, has reportedly emerged as a target for the Reds after Virgil van Dijk was ruled out for a lengthy period with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

With Joe Gomez and Joel Matip the only remaining senior centre-backs, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is believed to be drawing up a list of targets for the January window.

White is believed to be one of the priority targets, though he signed a new four-year deal with the Seagulls last month and Potter insists he has “no concerns” about the Englishman.

“I think it is a bit like it was at the start of the season. All sorts of talk about him doing this, him doing that, and it is generated by outside, by outside of our control really,” the Brighton boss said ahead of Monday’s clash with West Brom.

“It is part of the football noise. The transfer window closed last week and we are already having conversations around transfer speculation. It’s just the way it is.

“I know he is level-headed enough to not let it affect him. I think at this level you have to know it is part of the territory.

“It is part of the job of being a footballer, while it’s part of what you have to deal with. Consistently all he has done is get on with his football.
