Klopp blasts ‘stop singing that s***’ at Liverpool fans in dramatic outburst
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was left fuming with his own fans at Anfield during their 3-1 win over Bournemouth.
After a shocking start, which saw the Cherries go 1-0 up inside three minutes during the Reds home Premier League opener, Klopp and co eventually managed to fight their way back into the contest, taking a 2-1 lead into half-time.
After the break, they suffered at set-back when Alexis Mac Allister was sent off, but bounced back immediately thanks to Diogo Jota, who capitalised on a rebounded save from Neto to make it 3-1 to Liverpool.
However, there were some nervy moments in the final half an hour of the contest, which saw Bournemouth break on the counter at Liverpool multiple times. While they failed to find the back of the net in the second half, they had chances to punish the Reds which they didn't take.

At around the 75th minute mark, the Anfield crowd launched into a chant of "I'm so glad that Jurgen is a Red", keen to settle the nerves around the ground. But, Klopp did not appreciate the song in the slightest.
In fact, in a clip on social media, Klopp can be heard shouting at the Liverpool fans in question to stop singing. Klopp said: "Can you stop singing that s***! Can you stop it!"
What do you make of Jurgen Klopp's 'outburst'? Let us know in the comments section below.
However, the German's anger at the chant comes more from a superstition rather than any animosity towards the Anfield faithful.
Last year after Liverpool's dramatic 4-3 injury-time win over Spurs, a game in which his side went 3-0 up only to squander their lead, Klopp said: "I have to say now, I love all of them but my song, don’t sing it!
"If you want to sing it, sing it after the game in the bars, wherever. Because it is always like it is closing the game. We are 3-0 up and I hear 'I'm so glad that Jurgen is a Red'. It is not over!"
After the Bournemouth victory, Klopp said: “It became a big fight when we were one man down. Scoring the third goal was super important. They had then their moments but we got the three points which is most important.

“I don’t have an explanation for the start. You would like to think the disallowed goal was a wake-up call but it wasn’t it. We will find that it should not happen.
"From my position it was a clear penalty. Dom [Dominik Szoboszlai] gets the ball and gets hit and it was in the area. But I have not seen that back."
On Mac Allister's red card, he added: "Harsh. We have to speak about it. What you can see in the pictures is yes there is contact but that is it.
“It was straight, there was no real power in the foot. There was contact but there is contact in a game all the time. I think if he gives a yellow card nobody would say, 'by the way you need to have another look at that.'"
