    Jurgen Klopp labelled 'disgrace' and 'embarrassing' by club owner after FA Cup team selection

    Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt has called on the FA to punish Liverpool ahead of their replay with Shrewsbury.


    Lfc rumour
    The Reds drew 2-2 with the League One side in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday and now face a replay at Anfield.

    During Klopp's post-match press conference, he revealed Liverpool, along with other top-flight clubs, received a letter asking them not to agree friendlies and schedule any rearranged fixtures during their allotted break.

    As a result, the Liverpool manager said that neither he nor the first-team squad will be involved in the FA Cup replay.

    It follows a similar decision by the German that saw the Reds beaten with five unreplied goals and knocked out of the EFL Cup against Aston Villa last month.

    But Andy Holt who is in dissension with Jurgen Klopp's decision to field a weakened team once again has called for action to be taken against the Premier League leaders for their treatment of the competition, and in addition, branded the Liverpool manager a 'disgrace'.


    "This is a battle the FA must win or their flagship competition is totally undermined. He wrote on twitter.

    "This is a battle EFL must win, or they should shut up shop. "Liverpool need censuring and fining heavily. It is not their football, it's ours.

    "The path we are on, forever losing out to the Premier League has to stop.

    "It might have to be government or supporters that have to fight for our game in the end. In the absence of strong FA or EFL there may be no other option.

    "We have stadia sales, clubs suing each other, non payment of wages, clubs going out of business after being kicked out...

    "Just how much more evidence is needed for FA and EFL to see it has gone too far?

    "Football is in distress. Act for our pyramid or leave."

    Continuing his astonishing attack on Twitter after calling on the FA to "fine" and "censure" Liverpool, Holt added: "He’s a disgrace. I’ll never understand why top clubs and top  @premierleague players don’t stand up and stay united with clubs and players further down the pyramid.

    "This is pure selfishness of the highest degree. I'd drag myself out of bed to play the replay. Because it’s the right thing to do.

    "I wouldn't give a sh** how tired I was. I’d do the right thing. I'd give a bit back instead of being a grasping, selfish type. We spoke about the  @EmiratesFACup and how top  @premierleague would rather be playing exhibition matches in China building their profits and brands.

    "That’s why  @FA were considering significantly increasing the first prizes far more than the earlier rounds proportionately. We have only just given up 5th round replays.... They’re back for 4th round replays... They join in the 3rd.

    "Jurgen  @LFC, you're embarrassing yourself. Your tarnishing your reputation. Rethink where you go from here. You’re killing  @EmiratesFACup. There's calls to kill  @Carabao_Cup. You’re killing us."

    3. I agree with you, winning the FA Cup alongside other major competitions would be great and not losing at Anfield is a must.
