Report: Jurgen Klopp spotted shouting at one Liverpool player who appeared to ignore him

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was seen repeatedly shouting at Fabinho as the Reds drew 3-3 with Brighton on Saturday afternoon. The Reds dropped yet more points.


Liverpool’s 3-3 draw with Brighton was a microcosm of their season. They were awful defensively, consistently allowing chances from the visitors and struggling badly to control the game. On the other hand, the Reds did enough to rescue something and things weren’t as dire as they could have been.


Two points dropped, though – that’s the case no matter how you look at it. Liverpool just aren’t clicking at all this season and the problems appear to run quite deep.


Certainly, one reported moment from the game speaks volumes. The Liverpool Echo’s Ian Doyle claims that Jurgen Klopp was spotted shouting at Fabinho repeatedly in the second half at Anfield.


The Brazilian appeared to ignore the shouting until it was clear that Klopp wouldn’t let up, too. We’re not sure how to read into that one.

At the end of the day, Doyle is guessing that Fabinho was ignoring the calls. It’s very possible that the Brazilian either didn’t hear it properly or misunderstood what the boss was saying.


All we can say for sure is that Klopp wasn’t happy with what he was seeing. And why would he be? Liverpool were all over the place at times, unable to stop passes through the lines and repeatedly looking vulnerable on the counter.Liverpool FC v Brighton & Hove Albion - Premier League

It seems to stem from both disorganization defensively and an inability to truly push teams back. The energy was there – Liverpool came out of the blocks pressing like mad – but that wasn’t enough. The Reds can’t pin teams with their possession and Fabinho plays a large part in that.

Not necessarily as an on-the-ball threat but the Brazilian is the man in the side who should break up counter-attacks quickly. He’s not doing that as efficiently this season and it’s a real problem.

Of course, he’s far from the only one with a problem – virtually everyone is doing something poorly. Fabinho, though, is no exception and we imagine that played into Klopp’s ‘words’ with him on Saturday.
