In one of Klopp’s more recent trysts with astonishing excuses, he claimed that there was too much snow at Anfield in the game against Leicester.
The 1-1 draw to the Foxes portrayed the first signs of the pressure the Reds are feeling currently as that stalemate was succeeded by draws to West Ham, Manchester United and Everton.
Though there was a decent amount of snow on the pitch, the home side was not exactly setting the world on fire. The Reds’ play was lethargic and they looked bereft of ideas. Thus, making a case that a perfect pitch could well have played into Leicester’s hands.
When asked after the game, Klopp casually replied that the supposed disturbance on the pitch disabled his side from playing free-flowing football and led to another toothless display.
Hence, the German had again managed to pull out another amusing reason out of the bag. And Klopp’s rather frosty relationship with the English snow had taken a turn for the worse.
