Two managers at loggerheads after 2-2 draw at Anfield
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has issued an apology to West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis.
The two managers came to blows following their 2-2 draw at Anfield after Divock Origi scored a 96th-minute equaliser to snatch a point for the home side.
Klopp celebrated wildly in front of Pulis before snubbing handshakes at the end with the Baggies‘ assistant manager.
Instead the Liverpool boss ran onto the pitch to take his players over to The Kop to say thanks to the fans, which was received with rival fans laughing at the Reds for doing so.
Pulis even joked about what happened after the game by saying he’d only do that if he had won a European cup.
However, Klopp saw yesterday’s press conference as a chance to apologise to Pulis and that’s what he did.
“Everything changed after the last game. I can easily say sorry for everything I said after the last game because I am emotional and Tony Pulis is similar,” he explained.
“It was not for me a bigger problem. I really forgot to shake hands, that’s all. If we meet today it’s no problem to say sorry and talk about what happened.
“I have big respect for his work, but it’s not easy to switch on the lamps and switch them off. I wanted to go to my side, what can I say.”
