Man United are top of the league and now they talk about penalties, free kicks, corners, blah blah blah. This is not correct.
Klopp has made the point he believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, who sit top of the Premier League table ahead of Liverpool by three points ahead of their game at Anfield on Sunday, have received an unusually generous amount of penalties during the Norwegian's reign from December 2018.
Nevertheless Kanchelskis, who won two Premier League titles with United in the early 1990s in the early part of their domination of the league in that decade, says that Klopp is simply focussing on the topic out of frustration at not occupying top spot.
"I don't understand Klopp," Kanchelskis said. "It's like concentration just for the penalties, not concentration for the game. This is [Man United] six penalties, Liverpool five penalties [awarded in the 2020/21 season]. If Man United six penalties, Liverpool one penalty - ok, this is big."
