Gabriel Agbonlahor has hit back at criticism Jurgen Klopp after the Liverpool manager mocked the TalkSPORT pundit for his comments on Manchester United.

The unlikely spat came about when Klopp heard Agbonlahor on the radio after United’s defeat by Brentford last weekend.

The former Aston Villa striker was understandably critical of the Red Devils after they were beaten 4-0 by Brentford, describing the performance as “amateur” and United as “a shambles”.

Liverpool take on Erik ten Hag’s side on Monday night and Klopp thinks the criticism is unfair, reminding Agbonlahor that he once lost 6-0 to the Reds and could do little about it that day in 2016.

At a press conference on Friday, Klopp said: “I saw the first half and I drove home, heard talkSPORT and Gabby…[Agbonlahor] he lost to us 6-0 in my first year, I didn’t remember him as a mental monster on the pitch.

“What he said about United on that show, I was about to call. I was about to call and tell him you’ve completely forgotten what it’s like to be a player. It was amazing!

“When ex-players leave like that, you can imagine how everything else is going.”

Agbonlahor replied and posted a picture of him celebrating scoring the only goal of the game when Aston Villa went to Anfield in 2014.

He wrote: “Flashback Friday – scoring the winner at Anfield mentality…”

That win for Villa was before Klopp took over as Reds manager so it may not sting the German too painfully but it’s a nice response from the England international.

No doubt he’ll have more to say about that the next time he’s on the radio.
