Jurgen Klopp Responds To Kyle Walker Mocking Liverpool For Leicester Draw
Jurgen Klopp has had his say on Kyle Walker's tweet mocking Liverpool following their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.
We've all seen that picture of Harry Maguire speaking to his other half after the World Cup quarter final win over Sweden. It became a massive meme, with 'Slabhead' himself getting involved.
Butut after Maguire scored the Leicester equaliser which stopped Liverpool going seven points clear last night, his fellow Sheffield United youth product's attempt at banter was very forced and he ended up deleting it because of the backlash to it.

Essentially bigging up the fact that his team - the massive odds-on favourites for the title in August - are 5 points behind the leaders rather than 7.
Klopp condemned Walker's social media antics in his press conference today and says celebrating a rival dropping points is "not allowed".
"I'm not sure what that says about us, but it says something about them," the Liverpool boss said.
"I've never celebrated when another team has dropped points or lost a game, it's not allowed."
While it's a funny tweet and we're well in favour of footballers having fun on social media, it's just a bit daft from Walker isn't it?
Considering his side lost to Newcastle on Tuesday and are five points behind the league leaders, it probably wasn't the best thing to post.
And if Liverpool do go on to win the league, you can guarantee Reds' fans will net let Walker forget about it...
