Jurgen Klopp slapped Nathaniel Clyne after Manchester City win

Published 2 Comments

Jurgen Klopp really has endeared himself to the Liverpool squad and fans. The optimism around the city has improved ten fold since his arrival and Saturday's annihilation of Manchester City was simply incredible.

And it seems the German has a trademark way of congratulating his players after a match, but it should come as no surprise, Kevin Grosskreutz did warn us. 

Following his first game as Reds manager - a 0-0 draw with Tottenham Hotspur - Klopp slapped Jordon Ibe, and at the Etihad it was Nathaniel Clyne's turn to feel the force.

After the match, when the former Borussia Dortmund boss was congratulating his players, he gave Clyne a nice slap on the chops for all of his effort. 

And the England international took to Instagram to post a fantastic picture of the moment. We have to say, it definitely looks worse in the photo.

Nobody could've expected Liverpool would leave Manchester having demolished City 4-1.

The Merseyside club played out of their skins for 90 minutes and were simply sublime, whereas City fell well below expectation.

It was only the second time in history that City had conceded four goals in a competitive game at the Etihad.

Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho were simply faultless throughout the match and the former produced easily his best performance in a Red shirt.

The victory means Liverpool are now six points behind the top four and, following a performance like that, fans will begin to believe they can qualify for the Champions League this season.
