Speaking after his side’s 2-0 aggregate defeat to Southampton in the EFL Cup semi-final, the German coach hit out at the moving stream of air for its “strange” conduct during the game.
“There were many disappointments in this game. We didn’t play as well as we would have liked, and we weren’t helped by the wind. Everyone laughed at me before when I mentioned the wind, but it’s not so funny anymore,” said Klopp, adding that despite the widely-held consensus that weather patterns are random and uncontrolled, he is almost certain that the differences in air pressure above Anfield were firmly opposed to his side’s style of play from the beginning.
“I knew that most of this country weren’t fans of my style of possession attacking football, but when you have the natural elements attempting to stifle you at every turn you have to ask some questions.”
At press time, Klopp said that while he’s willing to cope with the intolerance, he’ll be forced to make a complaint if the rain starts acting up.
