In a recent incident, Jurgen Klopp’s assistant Pep Lijnders has been slammed by Dutch legend Wim Kieft. He claimed that Klopp’s assistant is trying to take too much credit for Liverpool’s success.

Kieft has written a column titled ‘Lijnders does not know his place.’

“By the way, for those who didn’t know yet: Pepijn Lijnders, together with Jürgen Klopp, is the founder of the success of Liverpool. At least, according to Lijnders himself,” Kieft wrote.

“During an interview for Dutch television, Klopp’s assistant caused curled toes by continuously talking about ‘Jürgen and I’. He only talked about the great cooperation, the openness of their relationship and the trust that had developed from that. An ostentatious attempt to take credit for itself or at least take some of the credit for Liverpool’s achievements.

“Whoever works as an assistant to Klopp; Liverpool’s success is Klopp’s success. He experiences the pressure as Liverpool’s head coach every day. The assistant is not under pressure. For him, it is easy to dance on the table and be part of a successful group without being held responsible for its success. Lijnders should sometimes rub that under his nose.

“It should be noted that Klopp and Lijnders are not, as Lijnders pretended, the ones who have put Liverpool on the map. Before their arrival in 2015, this great glorious and successful English club had already won numerous awards nationally and internationally, Liverpool had already been the best in Europe five times.”
