James McClean: 'Jurgen Klopp is an idiot'

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp acted like "a bit of an idiot" during his team's clash with West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, according to Baggies midfielder James McClean.

West Bromwich Albion attacker James McClean has branded Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp "a bit of an idiot".

Tensions ran high during Liverpool's 2-2 draw with West Brom at the weekend and Klopp, who took charge at Anfield earlier this season, snubbed a handshake with Baggies boss Tony Pulis at full time.

McClean has claimed that he respects what Klopp has achieved in the game, but has called the German "an idiot".

"I have got a lot of respect for the man because he done a great job at [Borussia] Dortmund, but I think he is a bit of an idiot to be honest. On the game on Sunday you can't act that way. Win, lose or draw you have got to be respectful," McClean told BBC Sport.

After Sunday's match, Klopp was critical of West Brom's style of play, which almost earned them all three points but for a late Divock Origi effort.
