Video: ‘I am not in the mood’ – Jurgen Klopp throws ultimate strop in Liverpool vs Everton post-match interview

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in a foul mood in his post-match interview following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Everton in this afternoon’s Merseyside Derby.

The German tactician felt his side were hard done by in a close game, with Dejan Lovren getting a lot of unwanted attention for his error that led to Wayne Rooney equalising from the penalty spot.

Klopp feels it wasn’t a penalty and made for pretty unpleasant company for his interviewer when he discussed the main events of the game afterwards.

‘Our performance was good,’ Klopp said afterwards. ‘We didn’t score often enough. I saw only one team playing.

‘I can’t believe the situation with all the challenges. We were clean and didn’t make any fouls. There is always one nasty one – (Gylfi) Sigurdsson made that. A clear red card.

‘You see the picture of the penalty. (Dominic) Calvert-Lewin is smart but it is nothing. But it is a penalty and one team can celebrate and we can’t.

‘Lovren doesn’t make a challenge. Calvert-Lewin makes a step. The hand is on the back.

‘If you think it is a penalty say so. Does my opinion change anything?

‘I only want to speak to people with a little bit of understanding about football. I am sorry, I am wrong and you are right. Obviously I am not in the mood to answer questions.’

Liverpool fans may be concerned to see their manager lash out like this when he was clearly not without blame in this match.

Klopp left big names like Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino out of his starting line up, and also took Mohamed Salah off in just the 67th minute when it was still 1-0.
