Klopp: I Can’t Be Friends With Costa

share on:

Diego Costa had a controversial game against Liverpool, prompting manager Jurgen Klopp to say he can’t be friends with the striker.

Costa won a penalty, which he later missed and was slightly theatrical and antagonistic throughout at Anfield.

However, Costa was still a thorn in Liverpool’s defence and Jurgen Klopp praised his talent in front of goal.

“If I had played against Costa, I could never be friends, that’s how it is, but when you have him in your team, it’s much more fun. He is a warrior,” said Klopp.

“What [Antonio] Conte is doing with Chelsea is outstanding but Chelsea without Costa this season?

“He is not the nicest guy on the pitch but I saw no real big incident and until someone tells me something…

“If someone tells me it was a dive, maybe I will be angry tomorrow but that would be the wrong decision what, number 27, but it doesn’t make it better.”
