Thiago Alcantara was surprised with a trademark Jurgen Klopp bear hug that lofted the classy Spaniard into the air momentarily in the wake of Jordan Henderson’s half-volley goal.
The skipper’s effort from range handed the Reds the lead against an AC Milan side that had seized control of the tie late in the first-half with a remarkable quickfire double.
The former Dortmund boss could hardly contain himself as he came out to celebrate the captain’s goal, catching a fully-kitted and unsuspecting Thiago on the sidelines as he waited to be brought on to the pitch.
