Jurgen Klopp was annoyed by Liverpool fans singing his name in the closing stages of Saturday’s 3-1 victory against Everton in the Merseyside derby.
With just minutes to go and Liverpool holding a 3-1 lead at Anfield, supporters in the Kop began praising their manager.
But the gesture appeared to irk the German, who turned towards the stand and tapped on his watch.
Earlier this season, Klopp urged Liverpool fans to stop singing his name until after games are won.
‘Maybe from my personality people think that I like being in the middle of interest, but I’m completely the opposite,’ he said in September.
‘I only accept it’s like this because it’s part of my job,’ he said after the 4-1 win over Leicester City.
‘I made the mistake at Arsenal [where Liverpool won 4-3 after leading 4-1] with a celebration too early.
‘In football there is relief when something is finished, but that’s a big mistake.’
Sadio Mane put Liverpool ahead with a fine solo effort after just eight minutes but Everton pulled level through Matthew Pennington.
Another excellent individual effort from Philippe Coutinho restored Liverpool’s lead before the break, while Divock Origi complete the win with his strike in the 60th minute.
The win has put Liverpool into third place, two points ahead of Manchester City who travel to Arsenal on Sunday.
