When West Ham manager David Moyes finally met Jurgen Klopp in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, he made several humorous remarks about the departing Liverpool manager.

The West Ham manager has joked that David Moyes will be happy to see Jurgen Klopp and his “bright teeth” go.

This past weekend, the German brought his Liverpool team to the London Stadium for the last time before leaving the Reds. The match was exciting, with both teams fighting to a thrilling 2-2 draw.

Moyes has only triumphed once against Klopp in his 14 career meetings. When asked about Klopp’s impending departure, the West Ham manager made a joke about how much he was looking forward to not having to deal with him or his trademark smile.

“I’m happy he’s no longer around!” exclaimed the West Ham manager. “He’s too large, and his teeth are too dazzling! He has been tremendous for Liverpool, I really have, even though I have worked against him at the other clubs—Everton and Manchester United—which are likely their biggest rivals.

There, he is the parent. It’s not always easy to lead a large football team, but he has managed to do so.

“I must admit, I’m relieved to see him go! Numerous managers from various backgrounds join the Premier League; some are short-lived while others, like Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson, Pep Guardiola, Arsene Wenger, and of course Jurgen, are long-term fixtures.

“Jurgen, as much as I dislike to say it, has been a tremendous asset to Liverpool. I’m glad you’re moving on! He is an exceptionally skilled manager, which is necessary to oversee a team the caliber of Liverpool.

To make sure Klopp’s farewell party is in danger of failing, West Ham took considerable care. The game was turned on its head by an own goal by Alphonse Areola and an equalizer by Andrew Robertson after Jarrod Bowen had given the Hammers the lead.

Late in the game, Michail Antonio pulled the Hammers even to earn a share of the points. Liverpool, despite having played one extra game, is now two points behind in the Premier League standings after the draw.

Along with star forward Mohamed Salah, who was benched, outgoing manager Klopp also had a heated confrontation with Salah. While the Egyptian was getting ready to be introduced, the two were seen arguing.

Three games remain for the Reds to save their season. They play Aston Villa, Tottenham, and then Wolves at home in Klopp’s last Liverpool match.

Arne Slot, the manager of Feyenoord, has already been named as his successor. Liverpool and the Dutch side have reached an agreement on a compensation package.
