This incident occurred in 2020 during a match at Anfield when the stadium was empty due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The argument between Lampard and Klopp was sparked by a perceived foul during the game. Lampard taunted Klopp by mentioning that he had won only one Premier League title, which escalated the dispute.
Because there were no fans in the stadium, the microphones on the touchline captured their exchange, making it more audible to viewers.
Carragher mentioned that Lampard still held onto the rivalry with Liverpool even during his time as Chelsea’s manager.
“What I thought was interesting was when you talk about that rivalry between Chelsea and Liverpool. You actually still took it when you were a manager at Chelsea, didn’t you?!”Said Carragher
Frank Lampard on his rivalry with Klopp
In response, Lampard laughed and acknowledged that he indeed held onto the rivalry with Klopp.
“Yeah, I did. With Jurgen? It will probably never leave me, I guess.”Said Lampard
He admitted regret over the strong language he used during the altercation, particularly because his 13-year-old daughter was watching and advised him not to be proud of it.
While he regretted some of the language, he emphasized that he didn’t regret the emotions he felt at the time.
Lampard, who is now 45 years old, has faced challenges in his managerial career, having been sacked by Chelsea during his first stint and encountering difficulties at Everton.
It remains to be seen if he will secure another Premier League managerial position, as he may need to rebuild his career in a lower division after facing setbacks.
Liverpool is my Religion and Anfield is my Church. 17th May 1996 the date I had my blood coloured red. The one you love the most you can not live without it and that is football to me.
