Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp called out former Reds left-back Jose Enrique during his press conference on Friday.
The outgoing manager wanted to reform Enrique as he claimed that the club’s owners had a role in his decision to leave the club.
Klopp will step down as Liverpool manager at the end of the season after a long spell in charge at Anfield.
Fenway Sports Group has often faced criticism for not supporting the German in the transfer market when he needed it most.

Enrique, who played his final season at Liverpool under Klopp, reacted to the news on Friday.
The Spaniard paid tribute to the 56-year-old but told Sky Sports he felt the decision was ‘related to expenses and owners’.
Enrique said: “My initial thoughts were that I was really crazy but you can’t blame him. He’s a legend, I believe Liverpool will build a statue. Because of him, Liverpool won last season. He has achieved everything he has in a few years.
“I think something has happened. I have my own opinion about it. I think it has to do with spending and owners.
“I think he’s tired of having to fight every year to get the players he deserves in the team.
“I think he’s tired of it. It’s a personal opinion. Obviously he’s giving his opinion and it’s genuine, but from my side and also from a former player watching him win every year. Miracles need to happen with these players.
“Obviously they have a great squad to win this year, but again, in this January transfer window, the team needs something and the owners are not giving it. I really believe they need one or two players. Needed and he does it even if he doesn’t say so.
“So I think he’s tired of it. I think he believes it’s going to be a good season and then after that, he goes off like a king.
“From the outside this is my opinion, I’m not sure anyone is thinking like me, but it’s very sad and at first glance, I was crazy. Not about her but about the owners. I really don’t care about it.” Was very crazy about.”
Klopp watched Enrique’s interview before his press conference on Friday afternoon.
And he wanted to make it clear that Enrique was wrong and that FSG played no role in his sacking.
Klopp said: “I just saw this morning, surprisingly, when it came up, I saw Jose Enrique, who I like a lot and obviously he has a big heart for Liverpool, he said whatever I I say it’s still about FSG.
“I can tell you, Jose, it’s not. It has nothing to do with it.”

Klopp admitted he has not always been 100 per cent happy with the club’s hierarchy.
However, he says it is wrong to blame him for times when the team fell short in its quest to win more silver medals.
Klopp said: “It would be easy to blame the owners for this and say ‘Yes, if FSG had spent more we would have won more trophies.’
“Was I always happy with every second of what we did? No, but it was absolutely fine.

“This club is different because we have built two stands that will last forever. If there is no earthquake, they will remain there.”
“This AXA Center will be there for the next 40/50 years, wonderful, everything is organised. We did everything properly, the Liverpool way.
“We got 97 points and 94 points and the reason we didn’t win the league or win more Champions Leagues was not because of not signing a player. If you want to blame someone for not winning the Champions League, blame me Blame it.”
