Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is “doing people’s heads in”, according to pundit Ian Wright.
The BBC Match of the Day man had sympathy for Brighton boss Chris Hughton, who lost patience with the German during Liverpool’s 5-1 win over Brighton on Saturday.
“The thing with Herr Klopp when you score four or five and the fist-pumping and the gurning kind of gets to you,” said Wright.
“I’m sure there are other managers who feel the same way about him. He’s doing people’s heads in.”
Liverpool are fantastic to watch when they burst forward at pace…but Klopp’s touchline ‘enthusiasm’ is winding up a lot of opposition managers. Takes a lot to annoy my pal Mr Hughton 🤔 #LFC #BHA #MOTD

Wright was unimpressed with Klopp’s antics but he was impressed with his team.
“They are unbeaten in six, winning five, scoring 19 goals, they are just so quick.
“They have everything in that front three and you’ve got Mane on the bench. If you can keep Mane on the bench, something must be going right.
“Mo Salah, Firmino and Coutinho are just full of pace.
“Brighton have come up against one of the best counter-attacking teams in Europe with the way they go forward.”
