'I've said too much s**t in the past': Jurgen Klopp laments making certain remarks

Liverpool are in Russia tonight to face Rubin Kazan in the Europa League.

LIVERPOOL MANAGER JURGEN KLOPP has admitted he regrets saying “too many shit’ words in the past” that come back to haunt him.

Ahead of the Reds’ Europa League clash with Rubin Kazan later tonight, Klopp was asked about the style of play he had dubbed “heavy-metal football” while manager of Borussia Dortmund.

But the German is less eager to embrace that label nowadays and said he was beginning to rue his tendency to produce memorable press-conference soundbites.

“The problem with my life is I have said too many shit words in the past! And no one forgets it,” he said.

Liverpool failed to take advantage of Rubin going down to 10 men when the two sides met at Anfield, with the Russian club holding out for a 1-1 draw.

“It’s not always the biggest advantage to play 11 against 10,” Klopp added. “Kazan did well. We had our chances. It will be hard here.”
