Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he’s not happy with being photographed all the time since arriving at Liverpool.
The German coach believes certain photos of him that have ended up on Twitter over the past week - such as THIS one, outside a pub surrounded by women - does not provide an accurate reflection of his life away from the training ground.
Klopp, in his post-match press conference on Thursday, was quoted by BBC Sport’s Ben Smith as saying: "I don't like being photographed all the time. Who does?"

He added: ”Everybody tells me this will cool down in the next few weeks. I hope it isn't because of the results.
"With all these pictures on Twitter, it always looks like I am in restaurants and bars. I am not that type of guy."
Klopp has tough job on his hands
Despite his maverick reputation, it seems Klopp is keen to avoid the limelight out in public.
However, that will prove easier said than done for the foreseeable future, with Klopp the talk of the city in Liverpool following his arrival.
As the months roll on, though, Klopp will be pleased if Liverpool supporters still greet him with so much enthusiasm when out and about in the city.
The former Borussia Dortmund head coach has a tough job on his hands at Anfield - made all the more difficult by the injuries suffered by Joe Gomez and Danny Ings - but is expected to help the Reds challenge for a top-four finish.
His tenure gets underway on Saturday lunchtime, when Liverpool take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
