Klopp was involved in several fiery exchanges with opposition manager Tony Pulis during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw at home to West Brom on Sunday and the pair did not shake hands at the final whistle. The German also raced down the pitch to celebrate Liverpool’s stoppage-time equalizer and was confronted by a member of West Brom’s coaching staff.
“I’ve got respect for the man because he’s done a great job at (Borussia) Dortmund, but I think he’s a bit of an idiot if I’m being honest,” Republic of Ireland winger McClean, 26, told BBC West Midlands.
“In the game on Sunday … you can’t act that way. Win, lose or draw, you’ve got to be respectful.”
Klopp made a strong start to his time at Anfield, losing only one of his first 11 games, but Liverpool are currently on a run of three games without victory in all competitions.
