REVEALED: Liverpool star and Jurgen Klopp had slanging match during Chelsea win

It has emerged that Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp had a falling out with his own right-back Nathaniel Clyne during the Reds’ 3-1 victory over Chelsea on Saturday.

The win—which came after a Philippe Coutinho brace and a Christian Benteke effort cancelled out Ramires’s opener—takes Klopp’s record at Liverpool to drawn three, won two.

However, despite being undefeated in his opening five matches, all may not be well at Anfield, where evidence of internal disputes have emerged.

According to Squawka, Klopp was furious at England international Clyne following a poor backpass from the defender which was ultimately dealt with by goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

The full-back also came under fire for some poor decision-making down the flank, although he saw fit to respond to the manager and launched his own tirade back at the German boss in full view of the Liverpool bench.

We sense that Klopp’s approach may just be a motivational technique for Clyne, who has actually been one of the Reds’ star men since the former Borussia Dortmund coach stepped into the hotseat on Merseyside.
