Jurgen Klopp rattled by Everton ballboy after being sarcastically applauded

Everton FC v Liverpool FC - Premier League

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had words with a young Everton ballboy at full-time following his side’s 0-0 draw at Goodison Park.

The ballboy sarcastically applauded the German coach as he made his way off the pitch.

And it’s fair to say Klopp did *not* appreciate the lad’s cheeky behaviour.

Klopp had just watched his side play out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at Goodison Park.

Liverpool now sit second in the Premier League table, one point behind Manchester City, after spurning the opportunity to return to pole position.

Frustrated with his team’s performance, Klopp had words with the ballboy after being sarcastically clapped.

Klopp clearly wasn’t happy after being mocked like that - and who would be? - but he did his best to keep cool and smiled as he walked off.

Here’s how football fans reacted to the incident on social media…

Mohamed Salah had Liverpool’s best opportunities to win the match during the 90 minutes but the Egyptian forward was uncharacteristically off form at Goodison Park.

In fact, it was one of his most disappointing performances since joining the Reds in the summer of 2017.

Liverpool will need Salah to be on top form in order to finish the season ahead of Man City, who are the bookmakers’ narrow favourites to win the title.

Everton, meanwhile, find themselves 10th in the Premier League table but in no danger of being relegated to the Championship.
