Footage showing Manchester City defender Ruben Dias ignoring Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp ahead of last month’s FA Community Shield clash has gone viral.
The incident happened inside the tunnel of Leicester’s King Power Stadium prior to kick off. With both teams lined up ready to walk out, Dias was seen going to shake the hands of the match officials, but completely ignored Klopp, who was stood right next to him.

Klopp looked shocked and bemused as he glanced at Dias after the snub. Fans were quick to comment on the rather awkward situation.
One fan said: “I’m a City fan but I feel bad for Klopp.”
Another tweeted: “Klopp looks hurt.”
A third fan added: “You can see how much Klopp is raging in his mind.”
However, Klopp did get the last laugh as his team produced a stellar performance to beat City 3-1 thanks to goals from Trent Alexander Arnold, Mohamed Salah and summer signing Darwin Nunez.
As a result, Liverpool lifted the Community Shield for the first team since 2006.
However, despite the confident boosting win ahead of the Premier League season, their fortunes have changed.
Liverpool find themselves 12th in the league table after drawing against both Fulham and Crystal Palace in their first two fixtures, on the the other hand, Pep Guardiola’s City are sitting pretty at the top of the standings after two more than comfortable wins against West Ham and Bournemouth.
In addition to their form, Klopp now has to deal with his side’s ever growing list of injuries.
He told Sky Sports: “The real feeling I have at the moment is I'm proud because everything went against us during the week.
“It was crazy, it was like there was a witch in the building. Putting in a performance in the circumstances, I'm really proud of that.”
Klopp continued: “It's not the start we wanted but that's the least of my problems because it's really tricky at the moment with injuries.
“We have to use the next week to maybe bring one or two back. We lost Darwin today which doesn't help but Bobby (Firmino) might be ready for next week. It's not a concern, it's just a start.”
Next up for Liverpool is a visit to Old Trafford as they face bottom of the league side Manchester United, Erik ten Hag is still searching for his first Premier League point but can overtake Liverpool in the table with a win.
