Liverpool were explosive up front against Sevilla in the Champions League fixture last night, as the Reds displayed an impeccable attacking form in the first half.
However, they permitted the Andalusian outfit to get back into the game and even mark a remarkable comeback, with the match ending with three goals each.
Nevertheless, a bizarre incident amidst the important fixture grasped everyone’s attention, wherein Jurgen Klopp was seen getting involved in a sideline squabble with a Sevilla ball boy in the 28th minute.
With Liverpool 2-0 up in the first half, Joe Gomez was taking a throw-in on the right, and the ball boy evidently felt that the England defender was wasting time, which is why he got up and pushed the ball into his arms.
But the German tactician, being infuriated over the ball boy’s action, went straight over to shove him, and instructed him where to go. However, the referee paused the match, and officials separated the pair before the situation intensified any further.
Regardless, the Liverpool fans seem to be celebrating what their manager did, as evident from their reactions on Twitter. Following are a few of them:

Some expressed how the incident would have been treated if it were Jose Mourinho who overreacted:

Those were followed by reactions from Liverpool supporters, who particularly enjoyed the heated moment.
