The Reds supporter called BBC Radio Five Live’s 606 programme to slam Jurgen Klopp following the Merseyside giants’ 1-0 home defeat by Manchester United on Sunday.
While Liverpool enjoyed the best of the first half action, they were unable to put away a series of chances and, with David De Gea repelling every assault, were hit with a killer blow when Wayne Rooney found the net late in the second half.

Klopp, as he had been in the midweek 3-3 draw with Arsenal, was at his animated best, but his showmanship and his touchline antics clearly didn’t rub with one Liverpool fan, who called 606 to complain.
In Wright, however, he came upon a staunch Klopp advocate, with the Arsenal great issuing the following defence of the former Borussia Dortmund coach.
“It’s a bit harsh calling him that. You can’t call him a fool because he’s got a few results wrong,” the former England striker insisted, responding to the irate supporter, as per the Mirror.
“Explain in the way he’s playing and putting his team out why he is that. You can’t just say that and not back it up.”
After a moment of pause, the Reds fan had only one response.
” Ian, you’re a d***,” the fan rebounded, before being promptly cut off.
