Jurgen Klopp Apologises Over Confrontation With Fan During Swansea Defeat

Jurgen Klopp Apologises Over Confrontation With Fan During Swansea Defeat

The buoyant mood of Liverpool fans, raised by the win against Man City nine days ago, sank somewhat on Monday night with a 1-0 defeat to Swansea.

After the win against the league leaders, it was surely viewed by many supporters that three points were already in the bag against the side still bottom of the table despite last night's win.

A frustrating night it was for Jurgen Klopp. During the game, the Liverpool manager's frustration with how the game was playing out was not aided by a vociferous supporter seated nearby.

In the post-match press conference, Klopp apologised for the slight slip in his behaviour.

"He was shouting at me all the time and I reacted one time. I must remind myself I’m a human being and not just a professional manager who takes that all the time. They can say whatever they want, at one point I turned to him and said, ‘Please!’

“It was only one moment when I thought, 'Now it's enough'. I'm not sure if we were already 1-0 down, probably yes, but it had nothing to do with that.

Klopp suggested that he was probably not the first opposition manager who had an issue with that particular fan,

I’m sure I am not the first manager who has had a problem with him there, he must be a season ticket holder. It was my fault as well. I should not react, but I didn’t say anything bad. I just showed I wasn’t happy about what he was saying.
