Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told off after swearing on live TV

Among the many things Liverpool fans love about Jurgen Klopp is his honesty.

He’s not fake. If he’s angry, he’ll let you know. On the flip side, he’ll hug you if you feel you deserve it.

The German handed out hugs to each of his Liverpool players after their 2-1 win at Chelsea last Friday. Clearly, he was pleased with their performance and felt they deserved to realise his appreciation.

Yet there are times when Klopp gets frustrated. We’ve never been in the situation but we imagine that being a football manager, where the pressure is incredible intense, is quite a stressful job.

You would have thought that Klopp enjoyed quite a stress-free Tuesday after he watched his team advance to the quarter-final of the EFL Cup with a 3-0 win at Derby County.

Yet that wasn’t entirely the case. The former Borussia Dortmund boss found a reason to get angry - the fact that Liverpool weren’t on TV.

Unaware that the TV cameras were rolling, Klopp let rip. "They did not show this game on TV? They show every f***ing game in Germany,” he said, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Sky Sports reporter had to apologise for Klopp’s profanity, saying: “People don’t wan’t to hear you swearing,” he says, rather sheepishly.

Goals from Ragnar Klavan, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi gave Liverpool a 3-0 win.

After last year's League Cup final defeat to Manchester City, Klopp asked Reds press officer Matt McCann for permission to swear. 

Sometimes, you just can't hold him back.
