Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed anger despite his side’s crushing 7-0 victory over Manchester United in the top of matchday 26 of the Premier League because of a Reds fan.

A Liverpool fan managed to escape security and entered the field to celebrate the seventh goal scored by Brazilian Roberto Firmino, while injuring Andy Robertson, the team’s left-back, which led to the Club’s revolution, fearing for his player.

The report indicated that the Liverpool players had stopped celebrating the goal and were worried about Robertson, who fell to the ground holding his leg after colliding with a fan who was scolded by Klopp while being pulled away by security.

After the match, Klopp reiterated that now is not the time to over-celebrate, after he chose not to welcome Liverpool fans to Anfield.

Klopp traditionally celebrates big victories with Liverpool fans by exchanging fist cheers with fans, but decided not to do so after defeating Manchester United.

“Well, it’s not about being louder, we have to keep going, we just have to keep going,” Klopp said when asked by the BBC.

“I love it, but obviously I can’t do it after every game,” he added.

And he added: “I wish they would ask for it, but I’m not very happy when they sing my song. I feel like, oh God, there is nothing else, but I appreciate it.”

Klopp concluded: “There will come a point when we achieve what we want to achieve this year, and then we will have enough time to exchange fist salutes.”
