Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has apologized to Tottenham, saying he disrespected Antonio Conte following their 1-1 draw last week.
Klopp slammed Tottenham's style of play after a 1-1 draw on Saturday, primarily because the result dealt damage to Liverpool's title chances.
Following Liverpool's draw, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City built a three-point lead at the top of the table on Sunday.
Despite dominating possession, Spurs had the better chances, with Son Heung-min putting the visitors ahead until Luis Diaz equalized with 20 minutes remaining.
After the game, Klopp came hard at Conte and his men, saying,"... they are still fifth and for everything they were time-wasting – it makes no easier, it’s smart but not easy.”
Addressing the press on Monday ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Aston Villa, Klopp said, “…But I said after the game [against Spurs] that they play like they play and are still only fifth. And it felt good in that moment but it was anyway wrong.
“But it was just my feeling at that moment, and I couldn’t respect Antonio [Conte] more and what he’s doing and my god how he organises teams and all these kinds of things.
“So of course you have these kinds of things.”
