Needless to say Liverpool’s game vs. Southampton is a key one for the Reds. With only three games left to play, three wins are necessary to ensure they can at least get Champions League football next season.
And in order to do so, they will need all hands on deck, which is why there were questions raised about Philippe Coutinho’s availability for the game. However, Klopp’s gonna Klopp, as the German tried to hide the update on the Brazilian’s fitness by taking shots at John Achterberg’s running style.
The fact that he decided to crack a joke at the expense of his goalkeeping coach, who’s admittedly done a pretty phenomenal job of rehabilitating the career of Simon Mignolet of late, might be seen as a little weird. However, the retired goalkeeper took the joke in his stride, even having a laugh about it on Twitter.
