Norwich City fans didn't react in the way you'd expect to their loss at the weekend that took them a step closer to relegation, instead embracing Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Saturday's match between the Canaries and Klopp's side pitted the team bottom of the table with the runaway leaders in the Premier League, but the Reds only just managed to come away with a 1-0 win after Sadio Mane's 78th minute winner.
Having seen their team play well but lose you'd be forgiven for thinking Norwich fans would have been annoyed but instead they seemed jovial and called Klopp over to take pictures, with plenty of requests coming in the way of 'Klopp!' shouts:

Plenty of football fans on social media loved the interaction between the German and the home fans:

Klopp being hugged and having selfies with Norwich fans is something on Klopp would do.- Pete Thornhill (@Pete_Thornhill) February 15, 2020
However there was also plenty of fans who thought that it gave off a bit of a small time and defeatist attitude, as the loss left Daniel Farke's side on 18 points, seven from safety with only 12 games to go.
Dirty that, just kick them out the league straight away https://t.co/GA0d0sVsRw- Kev (@kjwhitey) February 16, 2020

Absolutely no room for this kind of shite in the Barclays. Delighted they're going down to the SkyBet.- Peter Keighery (@PeterKeighery) February 16, 2020
The Reds looked set to drop points for just the second time this season, after their draw with Manchester United back in October, and Norwich played well in the match, even if they did give up a huge chunk of possession.
In the end Mane came off the bench, after being out injured, to secure the three points and put the league leaders just five wins from the title.
