In a rather unique complaint, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want his own fans to sing his name during a game.
“I have to say, because I don’t know how else I can say this, please don’t sing my name before the game is decided!
“Immediately when the Kop started signing ‘Jurgen Klopp la la la’ they were clear on Simon Mignolet.
“It’s like celebrating a penalty before you have scored!
It appears as though Klopp doesn’t want the fans to celebrate him before the game is done and dusted, or whether it’s a distraction it’s not sure. What is clear is that he doesn’t mind the fans singing for the players.
“I don’t play! It’s nice, I like all the players, but please don’t sing my name before the game is decided.
“It was the same against Arsenal. It’s nice, but it’s not necessary. It would be really nice if you could stop please!
“I wanted to say this, because (at the time) nobody could understand me. I know it doesn’t sound too smart, but sorry. That’s me. It’s very nice, thank you very much. But I’ve heard it often now!”
