Football: Jurgen Klopp says Joe Gomez ‘better than good’ after Raheem Sterling clash
LONDON (AFP) – Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said on Friday (Nov 22) that defender Joe Gomez was "better than good" after his altercation with England teammate Raheem Sterling earlier this month.
Manchester City forward Sterling initially clashed with Reds defender Gomez towards the end of the Premier League match between the sides on Nov 10 at Anfield.
The pair were then involved in a fracas the following day on England duty, with Sterling later apologising at a team meeting and on social media.
Sterling then sat out England's Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro as punishment but returned to the starting line-up in the 4-0 victory over Kosovo on Sunday.
