EPL: Liverpool boss Klopp denies Fernandes row

Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, denies steaming into Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes after defeat at Old Trafford last night.

Klopp came onto the pitch at full-time and was seen in conversation with Fernandes, but the German rejected the idea that it was an ‘animated’ one, instead claiming it was simply to do with a bit of time wasting from Lisandro Martinez.

“It was not animated it was the most harmless conversation I ever had with a player, who is obviously as animated as me at times,” said Klopp at his post-match press conference.

“It was about Martinez, who went down under a tackle that was obviously not that bad.”

Elaborating on his side’s defeat to BBC Sport, Klopp said: “The start of the game was exactly what everyone excepted, what United fans expected, they were after us. They started slightly more aggressive than us, they could more play the game they wanted than we could play the game we wanted.”
