HOT OR NOT: Jurgen Klopp deserves credit for apologising to translator after misquoting… and Patrick Reed is the pantomime villain once again

  • Sportsmail takes a closer look at who has been hot or cold in the sporting world
  • Jurgen Klopp deserves credit for apologising to a translator after his mistake 
  • Anthony Joshua’s trainer Rob McCracken devised the perfect plan for the star 
  • And controversial golfer Patrick Reed is back in the pantomime villain role again 

After yet another sporting week full of twists and turns, Sportsmail‘s Riath Al-Samarrai takes a close look at which stars have left themselves hot, and who has left themselves firmly out in the cold… 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp deserves credit for apologising to a translator after his mistake

HOT 

Steph Houghton

England’s captain was asked about the football she likes to watch and she said she preferred the men’s game over the women’s. With some justification, this has been seen by a few observers as unhelpful. But would people prefer that she lie? Women’s football is growing — why patronise it with insincere sentiments?

Rob McCracken

The lunacy of those calls for McCracken to step down from Anthony Joshua’s corner seem a distant memory. What played out against Andy Ruiz Jnr may have been an exercise in shooting a wide fish in a narrow barrel, but McCracken designed and enforced a perfect game plan. He is one of the greats of British coaching.

Jurgen Klopp

The Liverpool boss made a bit of a berk of himself for pouncing on a translator’s misquoting of Jordan Henderson in Germany. But credit to him for apologising a day later. Too many folk seem to think doubling down is the only way out of a tight spot.

NOT 

Patrick Reed

The American golfer is back in the role of pantomime villain at the Presidents Cup and he’s been acting up to it, too. Witness his digging celebration in a nod to last week’s furore over improving his lie in a waste area. Given his reputation, he’d be better served keeping a low profile.

Formula One

Why this continued silliness that gives Ferrari the power of veto over matters which displease them? It stirred again this week with news they put the skids on Toto Wolff becoming the next CEO of F1, owing to his affiliation to Mercedes and conflicts of interest. There’s irony in there somewhere.

World anti-doping

Strong on the surface but weak in the detail. It’s becoming a familiar refrain and we saw it again in a four-year ban on Russia that removes their flag from events, but not much else. Hundreds of Russians will compete as neutrals in Tokyo next year, and in the context of what we have learnt in recent years, that feels daft.
