He accused him of insulting the brown continent and described its championship as “small.” An African journalist embarrasses Klopp and demands an apology

An African journalist has demanded that Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp apologize for a comment the German coach made about the Africa Cup of Nations, which he described as a “small tournament”.

Klopp and Liverpool will lose the services of three of the most prominent players for about a month, especially in the period between January 9, 2022 and February 6, 2022, due to their association with their national teams, to compete in the African Nations Cup.

The two strikers, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, will travel to the national teams of their countries, Egypt and Senegal, as well as Guinean midfielder Naby Keita, to Cameroon, which will host the tournament.

After Liverpool beat Porto in the fifth round of the group stage of the Champions League, a journalist called Klopp to apologize at the press conference, but the German explained the intent of his previous statements.

Journalist Ogura Babatunde began his speech: “Hello Jurgen, during the last press interview you deliberately described the African Cup of Nations as a small tournament. I think it is an insult to the players and the fans and an insult to the peoples of the continent.

Klopp insisted that was not what he meant, but the journalist stuck to his opinion again and considered it an insult, adding: “That’s what you said, I listened to the journalist and I said that the continent of Africa is small, that’s what you said.”

Klopp explained his position, and said: “I did not mean it in this way, it did not even cross my mind, I did not mean to say that the African Cup of Nations is a small tournament, or that the continent of Africa is small, not that at all.”

“If you watched the entire press conference, you might have got it right if you wanted to, because I said there are no international breaks until March,” he added.

He continued, “I said, ‘Oh! There’s a small tournament in January, and I didn’t mean a small tournament, I was just saying it’s still a tournament, it’s ridiculous that it’s still a tournament, a big tournament, we lose our best players because of it.'”

Liverpool will suffer because of the African Cup

Liverpool will be denied the services of its players in six or seven matches in the Premier League and the FA Cup.

That period may draw the features of the “Premier League” champion for the current season 2021-2022, who witnessed an exciting competition between Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool, and he may be joined later by Manchester United and Arsenal.

Liverpool occupies third place in the Premier League table with 25 points, behind leaders Chelsea by 4 points, after twelve rounds have passed.

The Reds are also at the top of Group B in the European Champions League, after achieving five victories, twice over Porto, the same over Atletico Madrid, and once over AC Milan.
