Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder dismisses Jurgen Klopp's post-match comments

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has always affirmed that he will protect his players after Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hit out at him.

Klopp spoke about Sheffield's position on the Premier League standings and added his sentiments regarding five substitutions.

Wilder was left fuming and hit out at Klopp for coming at him and his charges: "I'm not going to talk about it right at this particular moment. I can imagine you can understand my view on that so maybe that's for another time," said Wilder.

"Today is talking about today's result and as Jurgen said - a good observation - we're still on that one point, as he pointed out.

"Everybody has that right to do that (defend their own club's view). There is 20 votes in this league and everybody looks after himself right the way through.

"Nobody is looking after Sheffield United the right way now, so we have to look after ourselves. I am not really going into the nuts and bolts of what was said (at the Premier League meeting)

"I have got a huge amount of respect for Liverpool Football Club, as I always have done, and have a huge amount of respect for Jurgen.

"Whether it is looking after the football club, whether it is selfish or another word... and by the way, there are a few more managers in there as well that have looked after their own club, and I will always look after Sheffield United."
