Managers excuses for a team not performing range from the implausible to the ridiculous, and both of those words could be used to describe Klopp's reason for why Liverpool lost against Southampton in the second leg of the EFL Cup Semi-Final.
The German manager said the windy conditions at Anfield had worked against his team. As though the other team weren't playing on the same pitch. Right.
In a post-match interview he commented:
"I'm disappointed, there's big disappointment. It was difficult. The wind was really strange, it was difficult to handle.
"You saw one or two balls when the ball stopped in a moment when nobody knew about it. That was difficult for a football-playing side.
"I said a few times when I came here about the wind and everybody was laughing, but today was really difficult, really difficult to play football with this wind."
Twitter was quick to ridicule his reasoning and point out there was a touch of Mourinho madness about his pedantic reasoning.
Better start training in a wind tunnel to prepare yourself next time, lads.
