Following the touchline row between Frank Lampard and Jurgen Klopp last week, Steve Bruce has revealed that he would be frightened to do that these days because of the fear of “getting beat up”. Lampard had some choice words for Klopp and his staff during Chelsea’s 5-3 defeat against Liverpool on Wednesday night and, after the game, the Blues’ boss warned the champions not to ‘get too arrogant’ in one of his post-match interviews.. Bruce has had his own moments over the years – once having to be restrained by the linesman as he squared up to Gus Poyet – and had an amusing response to Lampard and Klopp’s spat.
Steve Bruce said “I’m frightened now I’ll get beaten up, I’m too old to take them on. In my younger days, I used to take on anyone! Look, it’s part and parcel of it. It shows that little bit of hunger and there is nothing wrong with it. It’s a bit box office.”
