West Brom’s James McClean should have picked someone who isn’t as well-liked as Jurgen Klopp during his recent spat with the Liverpool boss…
The Irishman slammed Klopp as being “a bit of an idiot”, after the former Borussia Dortmund coach refused to shake Tony Pulis’ hand at the end of their 2-2 draw at the weekend.
It was a fiery encounter between the two teams and even the managers struggled to keep their emotions in check with the cameras spotting several occasions where Klopp and Pulis appeared to exchange words on the touchline.
McClean played the full 90 minutes and has since branded Klopp and idiot for his behaviour during the game.
Unfortunately for the former Wigan star, Twitter quite likes the Liverpool manager and has grown rather tired of McClean spitting the dummy out.
Here are the best reactions from social media, as McClean was roasted by the entire Twitter population:

Jurgen Klopp is "a bit of an idiot", according to James McClean. Says the man who disrespects the country he earns his wages in.

@JamesMcC14 Does your theory of respect despite result extend to all walks of life? Such as wearing a poppy?
