Jurgen Klopp was not pleased there was no hand sanitiser in the press room at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during his post-match press conference after his side’s 2-2 draw on Sunday.

Tottenham had an outbreak of Covid-19 at the club two weeks ago and, as a result, their Premier League match against Brighton and the Europa Conference League clash against Rennes were called-off.

In addition, Spurs’ fixture at the King Power Stadium was also postponed just hours before kick-off last week due to an outbreak of the virus at Leicester while the North London club were also unable to fulfil their clash at Turf Moor earlier in the month due to heavy snow.

This meant that Antonio Conte’s men returned to action after a two-week break against Liverpool and the home side would have been disappointed not to pick up all three points, given the number of chances they created.

While doing his post-match press conference, Klopp did not take kindly to the lack of safety measures in the press room.

The Liverpool boss said before the start of his press conference (via The Daily Mail): “I really think in this room there should be hand sanitiser. I honestly think that would be good.

“You know, you had around about 13 cases or whatever. I have to touch a chair.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Klopp is certainly right to be cautious given the outbreak at Spurs over the last two weeks. It might have just been an oversight by the club and I am sure they will have a hand sanitiser in place in the press room going forward.
