Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had a miserable afternoon on Saturday as he watched his side fall to a 5-0 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad.
However, it didn’t get much better for him after the full-time whistle either. Referee Jon Moss sparked a fierce split in opinion when he decided to send Sadio Mane after he clattered into Ederson, forcing the City goalkeeper off on a stretcher.
While many argued for and against the decision, Klopp was seemingly ready to put it behind him and shake hands with the official. Unfortunately for him, Moss wasn’t that interested as he walked off without it.
The German tactician then played up to it a little to make a point, but it’s certainly strange from the referee not to shake his hand unless he simply just didn’t see him.

Meanwhile, Klopp spoke to Sky Sports after the game to give his opinion on the decision, and he believes that Mane was “unlucky” to see red.
Naturally, that sparked another fierce debate over whether or not he was right as no manager is not going to protect and defend their player unless it’s indefensible, and so the discussion will likely rage on for a day or two more.
