Jurgen Klopp was embroiled in more pitch controversy last night in the aftermath of Liverpool’s victory over Burnley at Turf Moor, according to the Mirror.
On Sunday, the German manager run onto the pitch to celebrate Divock Origi’s very late Merseyside derby winner, and was consequently fined £8,000 and given a warning by the FA.
The Reds boss apologised immediately for his actions and promised to never repeat the incident in future matches.
However, he was again caught up in dispute last night, clashing with rival coach Sean Dyche at full-time.
The two managers shook hands amicably after the match while the teams left the field, but Dyche then whispered something to Klopp with which the Liverpool manager took issue.
Dyche and Klopp then exchanged a few angry words, with the Clarets boss shouting something over his shoulder at Klopp. Klopp pursued him asking for clarification, but Dyche simply wagged his finger in reply.
In his post-match interview, Dyche claimed: “I just said well done”.
Despite the unfortunate confrontation, it was a good night for Liverpool as they ran out 3-1 winners after falling behind to Jack Cork in the second half.
James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri restored the Reds’ lead, maintaining their unbeaten Premier League record and keeping them right on the tail of Manchester City.
