Liverpool had a tough time beating Monterrey for the CWC, but eventually, Jurgen Klopp’s team prevailed as they later pursuit the trophy vs. Copa Libertadores champions Flamengo.

However, the biggest fight of the day came outside of the pitch, with Jurgen Klopp constantly going at it with Antonio ‘Turco’ Mohamed, Monterrey’s coach.

The Argentinean coach sat down with Enganche to reveal what he told Klopp to make him so angry, admitting that he insulted him and wanted to fight him in the club as he felt like the German disrespected him:

“What happened is that I was disrespected. [Klopp] kept asking for yellow cards because he said we were hitting [Mohamed] Salah all the time. Then when I asked for a card to expel one of their players, he stuck his tongue out at me like a p*ssy. When I saw him, I laughed at first and then I got a little angry and rose to his bait – then my neighborhood came out and I lost all elegance and composure. If I have to tell you what I said to him… I can’t even remember, because I thought if I swear at him in English I won’t be myself. So I think I said to him ‘Your f*cking mother’s p*ssy, who have you been f*cking? f*ggot’. I went away because I never fight with the substitutes’ benches, but I went crazy because I felt he was trying to disrespect me. I don’t know if I reacted well or badly, but it came from inside,” the Argentinean said.

Klopp later claimed that Liverpool’s shirt ‘weighted more’ and that’s how they were able to overcome Monterrey’s tough defense, but actually, Mohamed should’ve been sanctioned for these homophobic slurs. Even if he felt disrespected by Klopp, there’s just no room in sports for that kind of thing.
