Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has broken his silence over a pitchside spat that took place between him and Frank Lampard on Wednesday night.
The Chelsea boss was beside himself with fury after Liverpool were awarded a free kick for a controversial foul on Sadio Mane. The set-piece resulted in the Reds extending their lead to 2-0 through an inch-perfect Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick.
Could Trent Alexander-Arnold be the future Liverpool captain?
Footage of the Englishman ranting on the sideline has been doing the rounds on Twitter as he complained about the decision to award the foul in Liverpool’s favour.
“We are not arrogant. We are pretty much the opposite,” Klopp stated. “Frank was in a competitive mood, I respect that a lot. For me after the game it’s over. What Frank has to learn is to finish it with the last whistle, he didn’t do that. I don’t like that.”
Loads of Liverpool fans have responded to his comments and are backing their manager and his stance. One fan feels that Klopp is speaking ‘nothing but fact’ whilst another admitted that they ‘lost respect’ for Lampard after his outburst.
