Jurgen Klopp admits he looks like "a complete idiot on the sidelines" when he watches his Liverpool team.

"At specific moments I still look like a complete idiot on the sidelines, I know that.

“I still have the most red cards, or certainly the most fines, as a manager in the history of the Bundesliga.

"He raised his flag, and whoosh, I was already on my way to the stands. But I can’t sit down.”

Even in the final moments of Liverpool's draw at Manchester City on Sunday the German was seen making his feelings known.

He also joined forces with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when he hit out at the Premier League for the fixture pile up.
