Following their 2-2 Champions League draw with Sevilla at Anfield on Wednesday, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was seen approaching the Sevilla dugout to go and shake hands with the coaches, but an argument broke out.

It's not clear what caused the initial ruckus, but the German was seen getting increasingly angry while fighting his corner.

"Why are you shouting, Why are you doing that?" asked the Liverpool boss, as officials stood between the two dugouts to prevent anything from spiralling out of control.

"What have I done? What have I done? I didn't send him off!" he added, in reference to Berizzo getting sent to the stands.

Sevilla boss Eduardo Berizzo was sent off during the game after he refused to give the ball back to Liverpool's Joe Gomez for a throw-in.

Berizzo threw the ball away from the defender, forcing him to go and collect it to the sound of loud booing from the Anfield crowd.

The action resulted in the manager being sent to the stands by the referee, adding to the feisty nature of a match in which Gomez was also later shown a red card himself.

Speaking about the incident after the game, Klopp said: "I don't think I have any influence on the decision of the referee. I didn't ask for it [for Berizzo to be sent off].

"The bench thought I was responsible for his red card, and they didn't like me too much, but it's not a problem."
