Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp explains behaviour as fans spot angry reaction

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained why he was yelling furiously at his players in the draw to Fulham as his reaction was spotted by fans.

The Reds managed to salvage a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage, missing out on the opportunity to overtake Tottenham at the top of the Premier League table.

Playing with their backs to the wall throughout the first half, it was Bobby Decordova-Reid’s drilled strike that beat Alisson after 25 minutes.

And footage has emerged of Klopp’s furious reaction to the goal going in, holding nothing back on his players.

In the clip, the game has just restarted and Scott Parker’s side are already back on the attack.

Beating his chest and waving his arms, the German yells to his players: “Come on! Wake up!”

And he repeats the demands two more times, which can be faintly heard over the Sky Sports commentary microphones.

Mohamed Salah’s penalty rescued the points for the Reds in a much-improved second half display.

This footage was shared on Twitter during the game, where the Anfield faithful praised the boss for his passionate display.

“Passion to win – that’s what sport is about,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “I could feel Klopp yelling then!”

While a third simply added: “Class.”

The Liverpool explained after the game what he was trying to say, telling Sky Sports: “I cannot write a book, throw it on the pitch and tell them to read it.

“So what I wanted was to just shake themselves and start again.

“A good start of the game is nice, but if you don’t start well then you can start again, start again and start again.

“We needed half an hour, pretty much, to get our feet in the game. So that’s why I shouted a bit at them. After that it was a little bit better, second half it was good.”

It was a bad day for Klopp before kick-off, though, after the manager revealed he had lost two players to the same injury.
