Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: Running on the pitch not cool but I could not stop myself

Sprint: Klopp sets off to hug his keeper PICTURE: GETTY

JURGEN KLOPP said his exuberant celebrations which greeted his Liverpool team’s last-gasp winner were ‘not cool’.

‘What can I say about it? I didn’t want to run,’ said Klopp who sprinted onto the Anfield pitch to embrace keeper Alisson. ‘It was not my plan. I didn’t want to run to Ali — I couldn’t stop, obviously. Not cool, but it happened.

‘Immediately after the game I apologised to Marco Silva when we spoke to each other. I told him how much I respect his work.’

Toffees manager Silva, however, claimed the Reds boss ‘did not apologise to me’. He said: ‘All of your colleagues have asked me about the situation but to be honest I didn’t see it. I don’t know what he did and the way he did it.’

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford also had a post-match apology. ‘I will say sorry to the Everton fans again, because I know how much it means to them,’ he said.
