Klopp Explains Argument With Liverpool Star

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and one of his stars were seen in an heated conversation following the loss to Chelsea, and the player has now revealed what was said.
 
 
The Reds were dumped out of the Carabao Cup after losing 2-1 to Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday evening.
 
Footage after the game showed Klopp and Shaqiri in an intense discussion, but the latter reveals it was just about tactics.
 
"[Klopp] was not intense or shouting something. It was just a tactical thing, like something off the free-kick we should do better," Shaqiri was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.
 
"In the end, Jordan [Henderson] took the free-kick and it was maybe not the best solution we did there."
 
Klopp echoed his new signing's statement at a press conference on Friday afternoon.
 
"German newspapers said I had an argument with Shaqiri - I hadn't," he added.
 
"I didn't have an argument with Shaq on the pitch. He was the first one I met. We had a free-kick I wanted to do differently. It was only about that."
 
Do you think it's right for coaches to shout at their players in front of the cameras? Let us know in the comment section below.
