Hoffenheim boss Nagelsmann snaps back at Klopp over tactical claims

Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann has hit out at Liverpool rival Jurgen Klopp after defeat last night in the Champions League.

The Reds won 2-1 in Germany with Klopp claiming that his side “played defensively really well because the plan was to let them play in the spaces that we believe were not dangerous".

“No, I don't agree," said Nagelsmann.

“We had the ball in many important spaces. He has to say that and defend his team.

“He won't say 'Hoffenheim played so well and we were s***'. I can give one example when (Sandro) Wagner played a square pass into space that was an important ball and another situations with Serge Gnabry and many others."
