Klopp in a burst row with Henderson after Man Utd draw

EPL By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 27/02/2019

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in a burst row with Reds skipper Jordan Henderson after the 0-0 draw with Manchester United in the Premier  League on Sunday at Old Trafford.

The England international was replaced by Xherdan Shaqiri with 18 minutes left during the goalless clash and as he made way to the bench he refuses to shake hands with Klopp expressing his dissatisfaction as he walked to the bench.

The report in the media claimed that Henderson was the reason why Klopp lost his cool in the dressing room because of Henderson’s action.

Klopp has labelled the report as "bullshit", however, as Henderson was not even present in the immediate aftermath of the game.

"I could have shouted, but Hendo wasn't even there. He was being drug tested," he told reporters. "It's bullshit. Nothing happened after the game, we were completely fine.

"We spoke about the game and the opportunity we had, things we did, and then we drove home. In terms of the situation [when he left the field], it was a pure misunderstanding. That's clear. For me, when a player leaves the pitch, it's clear, we shake hands.

"But I'm in the situation as well. I didn't say you have to wait for me until I look at you again as I was with [Xherdan] Shaqiri talking and then Hendo left. He was saying thank you to the crowd. I thought he didn't [go to shake hands] and that's why I turned and told him to [come back and shake my hand].

"But everyone else told me, "No, no, no, he wanted to shake your hand but you were not ready". That's how a misunderstanding works. That's all. It was nothing.”

Up next for Liverpool is the clash against Watford at the Anfield before Merseyside derby new weekend.
