Departing Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp appeared to take aim at Chelsea's owners over their decision to sack Mauricio Pochettino.

Klopp spoke to 11,000 fans attending a Q&A session at the M&S Bank Arena on Tuesday evening, following the end of his tenure as Liverpool manager after nine long years at Anfield.

Even on his way out, the 56-year-old was able to put smiles on fans' faces with a savage dig in the direction of Chelsea's owners.

In what could also be viewed as a dig at Chelsea's treatment of Pochettino, Klopp said:
We should be really happy that we have these owners and not guys who bought London clubs and other stuff.

I wouldn't have survived a year at Liverpool [with them in charge]. "Great development but not good enough, sack him!" A year later, "Sack him!"

Then finally they play football where people think they might be back and they sack the manager anyway.

Pochettino managed to guide the Blues to sixth place and a spot in the Europa League despite his side's youth and inexperience.

Whilst Manchester United's FA Cup win means that Chelsea will be playing in the Europa Conference League next campaign, it was seen as a strong end to the season for a side who had been struggling in the bottom half.
