What Frank Lampard Said To Jurgen Klopp In Touchline Altercation
| Last updated
A fuming Frank Lampard told Jurgen Klopp to "f**k off" during an altercation on the touchline last night.
The Chelsea boss got into with Klopp's right-hand man Pep Lijnders after being furious with the referee's decision to give a foul for Mateo Kovacic's tackle on Sadio Mane in the first half.
Trent Alexander-Arnold curled in the resulting free-kick to make it 2-0 but even before that, Lampard went mad at the fourth official, Lijnders and then finally Klopp.
The former England man's explicit rant was caught on camera from the stands and the whole exchange can be heard pretty clearly.
"How is that a foul? There's no foul there," Lampard said to fourth official Lee Mason, before saying, "Sit down then" to Lijnders.
Klopp got involved and asked his opposite number to calm down, which Chelsea's record goalscorer didn't appreciate.
He fired back: "If he's going off at me I'll f***ing say something, It's not a foul, I'm not asking you!"
Lampard was pacing up and down his touchline area and then told Klopp exactly where to go.
"You can f*** off and all. You think you can give it the big one, f*** off," he said, before adding: "Tell them to have respect, sit down."
Things were then diffused and the two sides would then play out a thrilling eight-goal thriller at Anfield. Lampard had calmed down by the time he did his post-match interview, yet he still made a point of telling Liverpool not to get arrogant.
He told Sky Sports: "Fair play to Liverpool Football Club, they've won the league, but also don't get too arrogant with it. That was my point, but it's done. In match play, you can get emotional and that was it."
"It is a fine line between winning, fair play they've won the league, but don't get too arrogant with it"
Frank Lampard was unimpressed with some of the Liverpool staff on the bench
