Liverpool defender ruled out for a month as Man Utd ace responds to Jürgen Klopp interview

Christian Eriksen of Manchester United has laughed off Jürgen Klopp’s interview after Liverpool were eliminated from the the FA Cup while a Reds defender is set for a spell on the sidelines.

Klopp went viral over the weekend when his interview with Danish outlet Viaplay was shared on social media. The German was unhappy with the line of questioning after his side was knocked out of the FA Cup.

“When he went around me I asked, ‘Why do you feel so provoked?'” the journalist involved in the exchange, Niels Christian Frederiksen, said of it.

“Then he shouted at me and he pushed my microphone away. I kept walking after him with a microphone and he pushed it away. He was trying to flee from the interview.”

“I chuckled a bit at that,” Eriksen told the Danish outlet Tipsbladet.

“I happened to meet Per Frimann, who is his colleague, on the plane on the way home. I know that Rasmus (Højlund) has spent the whole flight home with Niels Christian.

“I think they’ve had some good conversations. It’s journalism, and what they’re asking about isn’t something one is involved with oneself, but Klopp was of course tired and irritated after they had lost.”

Having made a very good impression in the Scottish Premiership this season with Dundee, young Liverpool left-back Owen Beck has suffered a setback and will now head back to Anfield for treatment. The 21-year-old is expected to be out for at least a month.

“Owen is looking at a minimum of four to six weeks on the sidelines,” Dundee boss Tony Docherty told The Courier.

“We have been monitoring and managing the situation with his groin and he’ll now go for a scan on it.

“With Liverpool being his parent club, they have a big input into that and, of course, he’ll get the best of treatment. He will go down there for that, certainly for this period because he’s their player and they want to look at it themselves.”

Beck will miss the majority of the rest of the season as a result of the injury. He made a brief return to Liverpool in January when the Reds were missing Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas through injuries of their own but the Welshman never made an appearance.
