Liverpool Manager Under Pressure: Jurgen Klopp Blames Wind, Trolled By Everton Ball Boy And Slammed By Angry Fans

Liverpool Boss Appeared To Blame The Wind For 0-0 Draw At Everton
Liverpool Boss Appeared To Blame The Wind For 0-0 Draw At Everton

A tough day for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was made a little tougher by the sight of Reds fans fuming about his decisions on Twitter and a cheeky Everton ball boy clapping in his face in the wake of Sunday's goalless draw in the Merseyside derby.

Klopp went around to shake the hands of the players and officials at the final whistle at Goodison Park but an Everton ball boy tried his luck by seeming to sarcastically slap towards the Reds boss. Klopp looked like he might have a stern word before seeing the funny side, although not everyone was happy with the 0-0 draw against Everton.

Klopp has blamed the wind twice this season, blamed a dry pitch, blamed the snow, blamed long grass, and blamed Uniteds injuries.

In the past he’s blamed TV broadcasters.

Klopp's own trophy drought stretches back to 2014 as he won the last of five trophies during a reign with Dortmund that yielded two Bundesliga titles, the DFB Pokal and two DFL Supercups.

I just can't get over how we put Lallana on instead of Keita and Shaqiri is klopp still thinking about the last min winner he scored vs Norwich. Keep Mane on and take one of the midfielders off FFS. Needed to show more bravery. [@JonathanFowle10]

All is not well on the red half of Merseyside currently, despite their lofty league position - they are only two points behind Manchester City. Speaking after the game Klopp said the wind made life difficult for his players and told Sky Sports:
