The two Premier League bosses were involved in a heated exchange during Wednesday night’s encounter between their two sides, with Allardyce accusing his rival of using foul and excessive language towards his coaching staff.

In turn, Klopp was left upset by a challenge from Jeremain Lens on Mamadou Sakho that he felt deserved a red card, which ultimately led to Allarydce’s retort as seen above in calling the former Dortmund coach a ‘soft German’.

Although the 61-year-old confirmed that the pair shook hands after the game and have moved on, it isn’t the last that he has heard about the situation.

According to The Sun, ‘Big Sam’ has received a letter from the FA which will warn him about his conduct in future with regards to discussing other individuals to the media.

It will come as an unwanted distraction for Allardyce, as his side continue to battle relegation following the 1-0 loss to the Reds thanks to Christian Benteke’s goal.

The Black Cats remain in 19th place and seven points adrift of safety as they prepare to face Aston Villa in a crunch clash at the Stadium of Light this weekend.
