Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson: I saw Klopp running and thought ‘What’s he doing?’

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has spoken of manager Jurgen Klopp on pitch celebration for the winner against Everton.

Klopp’s passion has been called into question recently after he charged onto the pitch to embrace his goalkeeper following a late winner against Everton earlier this month.

“It’s hard to explain what was happening,” Alisson said. “It was at the end of the game, I was celebrating.

“Generally, I prefer not to celebrate too much so I can concentrate on the game and stay level-headed but the goal came at the end of the game so I could let it all out.

“I ran to the middle of the field and did my usual celebrations, pointing to the heavens, thanking God, and then I looked to one side and I saw Jurgen and I thought, ‘What is he doing?’

“It was a great moment and I gave him a big hug.

“I appreciate it wasn’t the correct thing to do and he has been punished for that — but it was worth it.”
