Coronavirus: Chris Wilder slams 'selfish' Jurgen Klopp


Chris Wilder calls Jurgen Klopp 'selfish' and insists manager only has Liverpool's interest at heart

In the face of the coronavirus pandemic the Premier League is encouraging government latest plans to see football fans return to stadium 
in different numbers according to their respective tiers.

Liverpool are among the top beneficiaries and Klopp's has expressed satisfaction with the set-up that would see over 2000 fans return to Anfield.

But Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder doesn't deemed the idea reputable at this time around because most Northern clubs falls into the underprivileged tier including Manchester United --- and has for that reasons hit out at Jurgen Klopp for not calling for supporters to be allowed back into all Premier League grounds.

"He's a world-class manager and a world-class politician, who cares about Liverpool," Wilder said. "That’s all he cares about.

"He was never going to say what about Sheffield United getting their fans back in or Newcastle or Man City or Man United or anybody else. He’s a world-class politician.

"I know his background on support and how much Anfield has been a fortress. The Liverpool support is magnificent, I know it is because my old man is from that part of the world.

“I know he’s been vocal on that and Jurgen isn’t going to say it’s not right that they can have fans in as they’re in tier 2 and Sheffield United, Leeds, Manchester and all the rest of the north are not allowed in.

"It was funny looking at that map, wasn't it? Shock! I think us in the north were fully expecting us to be in the old tier three as they kindly put us in."

Jurgen Klopp has also called for the Premier League to permit five substitutes in matches.

Wilder's comments come after he highlighted what he sees as self-interest among certain Premier League managers last week.

"Cards on the table, he’s (Klopp's) going to look after his own club," said the Blades boss. "I’ve got incredible respect for these top managers because they produce top results and win things.

"But they're selfish, they look after their own clubs. They're not going to be bothered about Sheffield United, they’re not going to be bothered about England.

"They're going to be bothered about Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea, which I understand and respect. I would be the same, but I’m bothered about Sheffield United and it doesn’t help us to have five subs."
