Everton boss Ronald Koeman was critical of Jurgen Klopp after Liverpools 3-1 victory over the Toffees.
Koeman spoke regarding Klopp’s reactions on the touchline, claiming that he and his staff do not “make a show” like the Liverpool bench.
Everton manager Koeman told Sky Sports: “I don’t like coaches from the bench the whole time shouting to referees and to linesmen and to make a big show about tackles. It was one tackle and they were crazy, even though it didn’t need a physio on the pitch.
“It’s not what I like, it’s a men’s sport and your behaviour has to be like that. It’s part of football. We don’t make a show like the Liverpool bench, we are different, we are into the game, and not about what happens with referees and linesmen and tackles.”
Klopp did not want to be drawn into a row with the Dutchman.
“It’s a little bit difficult,” he said. “It’s like hearsay for me. He didn’t say anything to me. We shook hands after the game and so I don’t think it’s my job to speak about him.
“My staff is fine, really good boys, involved in the game. They don’t ask for anything that’s not right. Sometimes we have tinted glasses – it’s possible – but sometimes it’s pretty clear.”
I’m proud, I’m really proud about the team, how we played today. Of course we lost the game, but I think the final result is not reflecting in our performance,” he said.
“They have some quality players. Overall I think we can be proud of the way we played, how difficult we made it for Liverpool. That’s the way we like to play and how we’d like to continue.”
