Referees boss slams Klopp

Germany’s referees chief Lutz-Michael Froehlich has condemned Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, accusing him of setting a bad example.

The former FIFA referee was criticial of Klopp and his often emotional conduct on the sidelines in the direction of the officials.

“Although if Klopp always says ‘sorry,’ in the end something sticks,” Froehlich told Deutschland Radio.

“Sometimes his behaviour has such an aggressive potential that violent excesses may arise based on it.”

However, Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke was quick to defend the 45-year-old former Mainz trainer, completely refuting the accusations.

“This is strong stuff and completely wrong in my eyes,” he told Bild.

“We’re comparing apples and oranges here. Mr. Froehlich should recognise that we have led the (Bundesliga) Fairplay Table for years – and we are on top again this season.

“Our coach is primary responsible for that. Jurgen Klopp is dedicated and impulsive during the match, but not aggressive.”
