Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta got into a verbal disagreement this weekend.
Liverpool player Sadio Mane went into an aerial duel with Takehiro Tomiyasu that ended up catching in Tomiyasu’s face.
Arteta was furious with the challenge and confronted Klopp which could have gotten physical but his assistant coaches held the Spaniard back.
Both the managers received a booking for their altercation with Jurgen Klopp suggesting that the clash was ‘nothing’.
“It was a completely clean situation, nothing happened, two players jumped in the air and didn’t touch each other, really, at least not like a foul,” Klopp said.
“The bench of Arsenal went up and I asked: ‘What do you want from that?’. There was no contact really, but it looked like everybody wanted a red card.
“I am really sick of these situations, where everybody tries to go for Sadio in these moments. He is a physical player, obviously, he does make hard fouls.
“We had to take Sadio off against Atletico because they wanted him to get a yellow card.”
