Klopp tells Ozil Gundogan critics Shut up

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has jumped to Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan’s defence in the fallout from Germany’s dreadful World Cup campaignThe midfield duo caused controversy before the start of the tournament following their meeting with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan in London.Both players are of Turkish descent and Gundogan later insisted that there was no political intent behind the meeting, although Ozil has chosen to remain silent on the matter.The Arsenal playmaker has been on the receiving end of most the criticism with Germany’s general manager Oliver Bierhoff even claiming that Ozil should have been left out of their World Cup squad after their first group stage exit in 80 years.But Klopp has called for an end to the nonsense and backed Gundogan’s claims that their meeting with the Turkish president was innocent.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“The intelligent people of this country demand tolerance. And the others should shut up and not question the boys,” Klopp told Sport Bild, via SportsKeeda.“Both were certainly not very well advised in this matter. Older, more experienced people should have helped them there.“We should not forget that the two of them have Turkish roots even though they grew up here in Germany.“But it is the same as always: the one who cries the loudest is the one who hears the most. But that’s never been my thing.”Ozil was unable to either score or have an assist for Germany in his two starts at the World Cup, while Gundogan made just the one substitute appearance in the national side’s only win of the competition against Sweden.last_img
