​Liverpool boss Klopp has swipe at Neville brother pundits

LiverpoolJurgen Klopp has questioned Gary Neville's suitability as a TV pundit by making a reference to his short-lived career as a manager.

Reds keeper Loris Karius has been criticised for his recent displays by Neville and the ex-Manchester United defender's brother Phil.

"He showed he struggled with the job to judge players so why do we let him talk about players on TV?" Klopp said.

"The pundits, former players most of them, forgot completely how it felt when they got criticised.

"Especially the Neville brothers; the one who was the manager he obviously should know that too much criticism never helps.

"But he is not interested in helping a Liverpool player I can imagine but that makes things he says not make more sense."

"I don't listen to them. I am pretty sure Carra (Jamie Carragher) doesn't speak too positive about Manchester United players.

"Obviously the Neville brothers don't like Liverpool, I have no problem and if they can cause bigger problems then we have already, they have tried. By the way, you can tell him I am not on Twitter so if he wants to tell me something Twitter doesn't help."

Gary Neville was sacked by Valencia in March after only 28 games.
