Chris Wilder Maintains Rights To Defend Sheff UTD Interests

verybody has that right and there’s 20 votes in this league.

Nobody is looking after Sheffield United right the way through, so we have to look after ourselves,” Chris Wilder responds to Jurgen Klopp as five substitutes debate rumbles on, Chris Wilder has reiterated his right to defend the interests of Sheffield United after Jurgen Klopp accused him of being “selfish” in his objection to the introduction of five substitutes.

The Blades boss was called out in a fiery post-match interview conducted by the Liverpool manager in the aftermath of the champions’ 1-1 draw at Brighton, during which they conceded a VAR-awarded penalty in stoppage-time.

Speaking after Sheffield United’s 1-0 defeat at West Brom, Wilder refused to be drawn on the specifics of Klopp’s rant but insisted he – and every manager in the Premier League – is under no obligation to consider anything other than their own interests.

“I’m not interested in that today,” Wilder told Sky Sports, when asked for his thoughts on Klopp’s earlier comments. “Maybe that’s for another time. As Jurgen made a good observation, we are just on one point. It’s not the time to talk about it.

“Everybody has that right and there’s 20 votes in this league. Nobody is looking after Sheffield United right the way through, so we have to look after ourselves.

“I’m not really going into the nuts and bolts, I’ve got a huge amount of respect for Liverpool as a football club, and for Jurgen, whether it’s looking after the club, whether it’s ‘selfish’, or another word that anybody uses.

“By the way there’s a few more managers in there who have looked after their own club… that’s enough from me.

“They got chances on the counter-attack but we had enough to win two games there. If we don’t show that quality or composure in the final third, then we won’t get something out of a game where we should get something from it.

“It’s a poor clearance [for West Brom’s goal] at the near post. He’s [Sander Berge] scuffed it and maybe we should have reacted to go and stop that shot. If we deal with the first one, you don’t have to react to the second one.

The players know they have been in a game they want to win. They went to the end. The conditioning was good, and they were driving the game forward. They weren’t half chances. They are really good chances.”

In terms of the way we played to create those chances we must have done something right but as always the game gets decided because we didn’t put it to bed.” Source: Sky sports.
