Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp tells Anfield fans to stop singing his name during games


JURGEN KLOPP has asked Liverpool fans to stop singing his name during games.

And that is because the Reds boss believes that supporters are jinxing the team by hailing him before results are in the bag.

Liverpool thumped champions Leicester 4-1 at a revamped Anfield on Saturday thanks to a Roberto Firmino double.

But after the way Arsenal staged a comeback in the opening game of the season, coming back from 4-1 down to provide a nervy finish as Reds won 4-3, Klopp has had enough of premature celebrations.

He said: “I have to say, because I don't know how else I can say this, please don't sing my name before the game is decided!

“Immediately when the Kop started signing 'Jurgen Klopp la la la' they were clear on Simon Mignolet.

“It's like celebrating a penalty before you have scored!

“It was the same against Arsenal. It's nice, but it's not necessary.

"It would be really nice if you could stop please!

“I wanted to say this, because (at the time) nobody could understand me. I know it doesn't sound too smart, but sorry. That's me. It's very nice, thank you very much. But I've heard it often now!”
