'Are you crazy?' - Klopp unhappy with Liverpool applause of Chelsea red card

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool 2020-21

Jurgen Klopp reiterated his dislike for any unsportsmanlike behaviour after remonstrating with a member of the Liverpool staff for applauding a red card handed to Chelsea defender Andreas Christensenon Sunday.

"Are you crazy? We never ever do that, ok?," Klopp could reportedly be heard shouting from the sidelines.

The send off would prove decisive as Liverpool went on to claim a 2-0 win courtesy of a double fromMane.

Klopp clarified his stance on the red-card applause post-match and admitted the sending offdid change the game.

"It was not one of my subs but another member of staff and I told him already what I thought and he is good with that," Klopp said."I am fine with that but in the moment it wasn't what I wanted to see.

"I saw the sending off only in the situation. I saw Christensen's arms around Sadio so I thought in the moment it is a sending off but I couldn't see it back since then so if you have seen it differently, then I respect that.

"Would we have won it if Chelsea had XI? Who knows that! I thought we were good in the first half so I thought we could win it but if we would, I don't know.

"We know that it was a different game in the second half but I liked our first half already. I liked the way we tried to find solutions with the way we played. I liked the way we took on a difficult game.

"That was already very good and I was ready for a very positive half-time talk with a few pictures on what we could have done differently, where we have to move quicker, pass quicker, easier and stuff like this. Then, the red card, yes and it changed the game."

The reigning Premier League champions have now won their first two games of the league season with Klopp content from what he's seen and eager to send a message to their future opponents.

"I liked the performance, I liked it a lot and we areplaying for two things -three points and to show people you need to be ready for us when we arrive," Klopp added.

"The next game is going to be difficult for their own reasons because Arsenal has been flying for a few months already and it is really tough but for ourselves, for the way we feel, play with patience and to improve to make us successful.
