Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained why he reacted so angrily when the Kop began to sing his name in the second half of Saturday’s 4-1 win over Leicester.
Roberto Firmino began and ended the scoring, with goals from Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana in between, while Lucas Leiva’s mistake briefly gave the Foxes hope when Jamie Vardy made it 2-1 just before half-time.
And Klopp was upset at the Anfield crowd celebrating with the game still in the balance at 3-1, noting that Vardy was through one-on-one with Simon Mignolet while they were singing.
“Please don’t sing my name before the game is decided,” he 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.
“That is an easy deal. That is what I expect from us, what we did yesterday.”
