See Jurgen Klopp Ignore Handshake With West Brom Backroom Staff

Jurgen Klopp refused to shake the hands of Tony Pulis and his backroom team after yesterday’s 2-2 draw between Liverpool and West Brom at Anfield.

According to the German manager, “it was not a friendly game” and he wanted to get straight to his team rather than shake the hands of Pulis and his assistant Mark O’Connor.

The managers had clashed during the game after seeing Craig Gardner’s tackle force Dejan Lovren off with what could be a serious knee injury.

The moment Klopp said no to the handshake was caught on camera and you can see it above.

Instead of exchanging pleasantries, Klopp ran to his players and led them to link arms before praising the Kop:

Liverpool were heading for a 2-1 defeat before Divock Origi struck in the 95th minute to hand them the draw.

But they remain ninth in the English Premier after missing the chance to close the gap on Manchester United and Tottenham, who both lost at the weekend.
