Klopp Reacts to Manchester City’s Recent Setback: “Writing Them Off Would Be the Biggest Joke”

By Score More Staff Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed the idea of writing off Manchester City in the Premier League title race, calling it "the biggest joke in the history of football."

By Score More Liverpool finds itself at the center of yet another VAR controversy, casting a shadow over their recent match against Tottenham Hotspur.

Jurgen Klopp Delivers a Stern Message to Liverpool Players Following Victory at Wolves

By Score More  Liverpool continued their impressive start to the season with a 3-1 triumph over Wolves, but manager Jurgen Klopp didn't mince his words when addressing his players after the match at Molineux.

Liverpool's performance in the first half left much to be desired, but they gradually improved. They equalized through Cody Gakpo before breaking down Wolves' resistance with just four minutes left, securing their third comeback win of the season...
