Jurgen Klopp has explained why he reacted angrily to the Kop singing his name against Leicester on Saturday.
Klopp wanted the players to take the credit, and was demonstrably unhappy when he heard Liverpool fans singing their manager’s name.
“Please don’t sing my name before the game is decided,” Klopp said.
“When the Kop started singing it [Leicester] were alone in front of Simon Mignolet.
“I don’t play. It was the same at Arsenal. It is nice but not necessary.
“I am really on the side of the players. I am responsible for our bad performances, they are responsible for the good performances.
Liverpool won the game 4-1, with Matt Stead writing that they will be this season’s Great Entertainers.
