Jurgen Klopp has rejected Frank Lampard’s suggestion that the Liverpool bench was “arrogant” during the Reds’ 5-3 Premier League win over Chelsea on Wednesday night.

The two managers were seen arguing in the technical zones at Anfield, but the title-winning boss says he has no issue with the words spoken – other than when it continued beyond full-time.

“We are not arrogant. Frank was in really competitive mood, I respect that a lot,” he said. “For me, after the game, it’s completely over.

“What he has to learn is to finish it with the last whistle & he didn’t do that. Speaking after the whistle is not OK.”
