Jurgen Klopp celebrated Adam Lallana’s dramatic winner for Liverpool this afternoon so hard that he broke his glasses.
Yes, the scenes were that unbelievable. Lallana’s volley into the ground, that ended up looping into Declan Rudd’s goal and giving Liverpool a 5-4 lead with seconds to spare, capped one of the most enthralling Premier League games in recent memory.
Klopp might not have been managing in England for all that long, but he’s a man who, by nature, needs little cajoling or coercing in terms of displaying his emotions.
No sooner had Lallana won the day for Liverpool than Klopp was hurtling down the touchline towards the England international, a typical expression of pure, unabated joy on his face.
Bodies collided, the Red end of Carrow Road exploded, Lallana was swarmed and in the ruckus Klopp’s glasses were removed from his face.

The German was then seen moments later, after the final whistle, walking around the pitch with his glasses in his hand. He then took his post-match interview without wearing them.

So, a pair of glasses was the price for a trademark celebration and a roller-coaster of emotions that would have given most major cup finals a run for their money. We’re sure Klopp’s the kind of manager that would give such material things in return for heading home with three points.
