Only a few months earlier, Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard argued but the latter remains the German’s follower.
Despite any touchline conflicts, Frank Lampard states his respect for Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp will “never change.”
According to Goal, Klopp spoke of his admiration for Lampard on Friday, and the Chelsea manager retaliated in his pre-match news conference, adding that he believed that the 24-hour news cycle was not helping those matters.
“It’s the nature of the world we live in,” Lampard told reporters when asked if the feud had been exaggerated. “There is a lot of airtime for you to fill with rivalries, so I understand they can be scrutinized in every way.”
“I just want to reiterate what Klopp said from his part; I have a huge amount of respect for him as a manager, what he’s done at Liverpool has been incredible, and that’s as the focal point of the club and the individual talent they have in that squad that he’s brought in.”
“So, there’s nothing in it for me. The competitive nature of the 90 minutes can always slightly boil over but the respect I have for Klopp will never change.”
