”DON’T KILL MY GLASSES OR YOU WILL BE SOLD!”: – KLOPP JOKES ABOUT BENTEKE’S LIVERPOOL EXIT
The Reds offloaded the Belgian striker because the striker ravaged his manager’s glasses celebrating a goal, he has jested.
Jurgen Klopp has japingly claimed Christian Benteke was sold to Crystal Palace because he broke the Liverpool manager’s glasses last season.
The German had his spectacles smashed during the wild celebrations that greeted Adam Lallana’s victor in a remarkable 5-4 victory away to Norwich in the Premier League last term.
Benteke left Anfield for Selhurst Park in August, having lasted just one season on Merseyside.
Verbalizing with the Liverpool Echo, former Borussia Dortmund coach Klopp mischievously suggested the Belgium international was shown the door after coercing his
authoritative figure to visit the optician.
“They were absolutely broken! In the picture I have them in my hands,” he said of his crushed eyewear. “It was Christian Benteke who did it. So don’t kill my glasses or otherwise you will be sold!”
“I actually don’t wish we have games like this a lot of times because it’s quite nervy and intense,” he said.
