Stadium company sends Jurgen Klopp mini-stadium.
His Liverpool FC are on the verge of losing after losing 3-1 in the quarter-final first leg of the UEFA Champions League at Real Madrid. After the game, the German was angry about an alleged foul on Sadio Mane before the 0-2 and quarreled with referee Felix Brych.
Jurgen Klopp surely has no reason to laugh.
But it is not just the performance of the referee that upsets the master trainer angry, even at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano, Real Madrid’s alternative stadium, he is not good at all.
“We have been playing in empty stadiums for some time, but that is something completely different. It’s a training ground. It’s like visiting Manchester United and playing on the training ground.
“Klopp said before the Champions League first leg at Real Madrid – to the Spanish broadcaster” MOVISTAR + “.
Background: Klopp had complained that the quarter-final first leg of the premier class (1: 3) was not played in the Bernabeu Stadium. Real has been playing its home games since the beginning of the Corona crisis in the small Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano. Where the second team and the women’s team had previously been used. The capacity of the stadium is 6000 spectators. Economically sensible, but not to Klopp’s taste.
Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane (48) promptly countered: “We are proud to play for Alfredo di Stéfano.” It was not the only counterattack against Klopp’s criticism.
The company Eleven Force, which sells 3D puzzles for stadiums and cooperates with Real Madrid, now wants to send the Liverpool coach a three-dimensional reproduction of the Di Stéfano stadium.
José Guerrero, Director of Eleven Force: “We know Jürgen is a guy with a great sense of humor and will surely like the action. We will also send him a Mini-Wanda (the stadium of Atletico Madrid) as a souvenir of the Champions League final won.”
