One Liverpool fan has labelled Jurgen Klopp as an 'absolute fool' after the Reds were beaten at the hands of Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, reports the Mirror.
Liverpool controlled proceedings on Merseyside but failed to break down their Premier League counterparts. A late goal from Wayne Rooney sealed all three points for the Red Devils, leaving Liverpool with a mountain to climb in their pursuit of a place in the top four.
Unsurprisingly, then, Liverpool fans were far from impressed with the result. But one Liverpool supporter in particular made his feelings well and truly clear following the clash, branding manager Klopp as 'an absolute fool'.

After the Liverpool fan blasted the German coach on BBC Radio 5Live, Arsenal hero Ian Wright duly responded.
Wright stated: "It's a bit harsh calling him that. You can't call him a fool because he's got a few results wrong.
War of words
"Explain in the way he's playing and putting his team out why he is that. You can't just say that and not back it up."
The fan then responded: "Ian, you're a d***."
Unsurprisingly, instead of reacting to the insulting comment, the Arsenal hero found the episode quite amusing.
It will take time
The majority of Liverpool supporters probably won't agree with their fellow fan on this one.
Klopp clearly needs time to change the dynamic of his squad and fully implement his philosophy. Securing a place in the top four of the Premier League will be tricky, but Liverpool supporters must stay patient at this stage.
The revered coach is in need of a full pre-season to work with his players while also looking to improve his squad in the transfer window.
