Jurgen Klopp was caught admiring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's incredible goal against his Liverpool team. Aubameyang scored the first goal in the Community Shield final and it was a beauty.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is known for his fiery temper when his superb Liverpool side concede a goal.
And for good measure. Ever since the signings of Alisson Becker and Virgil Van Dijk, Klopp's Liverpool have conceded the least amount of goals in the Premier League over the past two seasons.

However in the Community Shield final against Arsenal he could only admire the opening goal they conceded. Liverpool came out losers in the Community Shield after losing to Arsenal on penalties after a 1-1 draw in regular time.
Arsenal had their noses in front until the 73rd minute when Liverpool sourced an equaliser, with substitute Takumi Minamino netting a rare goal.
The contest went to a penalty shoot-out, with Arsenal coming out on top, winning 5-4 after Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster missed the only spot-kick of the shoot-out.
But Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's opening goal was so incredible that even Klopp cracked a smile at the goal.
Superb from @Aubameyang7! :clap: #CommunityShield pic.twitter.com/LNFi94tFFT

Right at the very end of the above video, the TV cameras pick up Klopp smiling and gently nodding his head, as though he is admiring what Aubameyang had just done.
Aubameyang and Klopp were together at Borussia Dortmund and Klopp knows all too well what the Gabon striker can do if he's given inches of space. The duo spent two years at Dortmund together where Auba scored 41 goals in 94 games under the German manager.
What do you think of Jurgen Klopp's reaction to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's goal in the Community Shield final?
