Revealed: What was said between Jurgen Klopp and Everton ballboy after Liverpool draw!

The Liverpool boss encountered a sarcastic Everton ballboy after Sunday’s Merseyside derby

Manchester City moved back to the top of the Premier League table with another hard-fought 1-0 victory, this time over Bournemouth, to prove they have nerves of steel in the title race.

Meanwhile, Liverpool drew yet another match, their inferior quality from the bench – and Jurgen Klopp’s hesitant tactical decisions – costing them the three points at Goodison Park.

Liverpool have now drawn five of their last seven matches in all competitions. After the draw, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had words with a young Everton ballboy. It’s been revealed what exactly was going in between Jurgen Klopp and the Everton ball-boy.

Liverpool dropped two points against their local rivals to hand Manchester City a huge advantage in the race for the Premier League title on Sunday.

But there was more drama to come after the final whistle as Klopp went to head down the tunnel before being confronted by a group of young Everton ballboys. One youngster stood sarcastically clapping at the German, who appeared to briefly lose his cool before walking away smiling.

Now, the Everton fan’s father has revealed exactly what was said during the full-time confrontation at Goodison Park. He tweeted, “Just a bit of banter between Charlie and Klopp at the end. No threats by Klopp or Charlie!
All good natured – what the derby is all about. Charlie asked him what he thought about the World Cup final… #EFC.”

The boy’s father has since protected his Twitter account, meaning the general public cannot view his tweets without following him first. 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. 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. 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 once again reflected the difficulty they have having breaking down opponents that have learned to sit deep and double up on Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Author’s Take:

Considering the pressure on Liverpool, it’s good to see Jurgen Klopp not losing his coolness and releasing the frustration on the young Everton fan. Surely the kid must be happy with his side’s performance. He must be proud of his team’s performance and the fact that his rival team are no longer top of the Premier League.
