Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp launched an attack on Tottenham yesterday evening over the absence of hand sanitiser in their press room.
Klopp spent the week making no secret of his COVID stance to the media. The German revealed that EVERYONE at Liverpool Football Club was vaccinated and he would never so much as consider signing a player who had not been jabbed.
For Klopp, the pandemic has had devastating and lasting effects on him on a personal level. He was unable to attend his own mother’s funeral earlier in the year as a much of COVID-related travel restrictions. You can understand his hard stance over the virus.
The Liverpool boss, who was already wound up after a controversial afternoon at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, continued his COVID-ranting by revealing his displeasure over the absence of hand sanitiser in the press room at the stadium. He’s quoted by the Daily Mail saying:
“I really think in this room there should be hand sanitiser. I honestly think that would be good. You know, you had around about 13 cases or whatever. I have to touch a chair.”
There is not really any excuse for the Tottenham press room not to have sanitiser available, especially considering the sheer amount of people that go in and out of there.
As the latest wave of COVID-19, fuelled by the Omicron variant, grips the country and threatens to force new restrictions into law, we hope that those pulling the strings at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ensure there is sanitiser on hand for their next home game.
