ROY KEANE was left stunned after Jurgen Klopp suggested Alisson could have had ‘cold feet’ that led to his blunders.
The usually-reliable keeper was at fault for two goals as Liverpool were thumped 4-1 at home to Manchester City.

The defeat means the defending champs are now ten points off City at the top of the Premier League.
In the post-match interview, Reds’ boss Klopp attempted to explain his keeper’s errors.
He said: “We did not give him a lot of options, especially the first one.
“Second yeah, he just mis-hit the ball, maybe he had cold feet, it sounds funny but don’t know the situation.
“He has saved our lives many times, no doubt about that, tonight he made mistakes.”
Keane was part of Sky Sports’ punditry team alongside Micah Richards and Graeme Souness.
And the no-nonsense former Manchester United star couldn’t believe what he had heard.

He said: “I think Jurgen Klopp said ‘maybe the goalkeeper’s feet were cold.
“That’s a new one. I know it maybe was tongue-in-cheek a little but it’s excuses after excuses.
“Klopp said Man City had a break because of the virus, it just goes on and on.”
Despite the defending Premier League champions being turned over on their own patch, Klopp did not seems as though it was crisis time.

He added: “Big part of the game was a brilliant game from my side. I can see in your eyes you see differently. I really liked it.
“First half played really good football. Second half, City changed the system slightly.
“A little adaptation and we would be in the game again but in the start of the second half we did not give enough options to play and gave the first goal away.
“We gave them too much opportunity. They scored that goal, we scored the equaliser. We were good again but then made two massive mistakes that is clear.
“At 3-1 down at this level it is tough to take and then Foden with a genius situation for the fourth goal.
“If we play football like we did for a long time tonight then we will win football games, 100 per cent.”
