An Everton ballboy has been caught showing some cheek towards Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, sarcastically clapping him off the field after his side's 0-0 draw with their derby rivals.
After a disappointing result against their Merseyside rivals, Klopp was not in the mood for the ballboy's banter.
Did that Everton ballboy just sarcastically clap Jurgen Klopp?! 🤦♂️� pic.twitter.com/4cVQq4CDFh— Soccer AM (@SoccerAM) March 3, 2019
The former Borussia Dortmund manager approached the kid in what seemed to be a stern telling off reminiscent of one a school teacher would give to a student.
However, this didn't deter the ballboy whatsoever who even had the cheek to give the German manager a cheeky thumbs up as he walked away from the potentially tense situation.
The Everton ballboy sarcastically clapping Klopp at full-time and continuing to do so after Jurgen has a pop at him for it is EXACTLY the sort of pettiness we can all get behind.— HLTCO (@HLTCO) March 3, 2019
Liverpool now find themselves in second place behind Manchester City, despite being 10 points clear at the top at Christmas.
It's not been a successful spell for The Reds who have only won four of their last nine matches since the new year.
Harsh to say Liverpool have bottled this title race, but they fluffed their lines when their chance arrived at the Etihad... then against Leicester, West Ham, Man Utd and Everton today.— Kevin Palmer (@RealKevinPalmer) March 3, 2019
They have not looked like champions in 2019...City won't lose it from here #LFC #MCFC pic.twitter.com/OGmyYAYhon
Clearly under pressure to secure Liverpool's first top tier title in 29 years, it's safe to say this Everton ballboy clearly got under Klopp's skin.
