Neil Custis, a journalist who works for the S*n, has took it upon himself to compare Jurgen Klopp’s “theatrics” to that of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The writer claims that the former Manchester United manager wouldn’t be anywhere near as animated as the German boss after turning a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 victory against one of the best teams in the country.
Klopp, you’ve won a game thanks to a terrible penalty decision not the league. Fergie would just walk down the touch line and put two fists up to the Stretford End, but from u have these theatrics all the time

Neil is clearly hurting, after yet another Liverpool win, because he’s opted to remind Klopp – and his followers – that the Reds won a game, and not the league, as if that wasn’t apparent.
I’m not sure why Klopp celebrating with the fans causes such a reaction from these types of people, but he really does get under their skin.
I wouldn’t mind as much, but the celebrations at full-time were actually pretty subdued by Klopp – the boss referenced Sky Sport’s cameras to the supporters as the reason for him not doing his famous three pronged fist pumps.
I guess I’m glad he’s our manager because maybe he’d annoy me if he was celebrating at the Stretford End instead of at the Kop!
The Reds’ next home game is against Genk in the Champions League – let’s hope Klopp has more S*n journalists on strings again after full-time. 😉
