- Chris Wilder, Sheffield United manager, has started a new dig at Jürgen Klopp’s

Chris Wilder called Jürgen Klopp a “world-class politician” after it became known that Anfield could welcome fans back to Tier 2, but Bramall Lane could not welcome them back to Tier 3.
Last week, the Sheffield United manager said the Liverpool boss was “selfish” about his concerns about the congestion of the games, the TV companies choosing unfavorable kick-off times and the lack of five substitutions.
Now Wilder Klopp has once again informed about the new rules, which means that Liverpool can welcome 2,000 fans back, but the Blades and nine other Premier League teams cannot.
Chris Wilder, Sheffield United manager, has described Jürgen Klopp as a “world-class politician”.
Klopp had previously felt Wilder’s anger over his complaints about the planning of the games
“He’s a world-class manager and a world-class politician who cares about Liverpool,” said Wilder.
“That’s all he’s interested in. He would never say, “What about Sheffield United that brings their fans back to Newcastle or Man City or Man United or anyone else?” He’s a world class politician.
I know his background in support and how much Anfield was a fortress. The support in Liverpool is great I know because my old man is from this part of the world.
“I know he talked about it and Jurgen is not going to say that it is not right that they can have fans because they are in Tier 2 and Sheffield United, Leeds, Manchester and all of the rest of the north are not allowed.
Wilder says Klopp would never think of clubs that fans couldn’t take back
“It was fun looking at that card, wasn’t it? Shock! I think we in the north fully expected to be in the old third tier as they kindly put us in. ‘
Wilder previously accused Klopp of “selfishness” because of the overload of the games and his complaints about the lack of five substitutions in the Premier League.
“Cards on the table, he (Klopps) will take care of his own club,” he said.
“I have incredible respect for these top managers because they get top results and they win things.
“But they are selfish, they take care of their own clubs. They won’t care about Sheffield United, they won’t care about England.
“You will be concerned about Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea, which I understand and respect. I would be the same, but Sheffield United bothers me and it doesn’t help us to have five subs. ‘
