Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp snapped back at questioning about title rivals Manchester City following his side’s 1-0 win over Newcastle.

Keita’s classy finish after rounding Magpies goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was the highlight of the match – although it was scored in controversial circumstances as James Milner’s tackle left Fabian Schar on the floor in the build-up to the goal.

Following the win at St James’ Park, Reds manager Klopp insisted he’s ‘not interested’ in Manchester City and is instead now focused on Villarreal. And the Liverpool boss made an X-rated gaffe during one of his press conferences leaving everyone in stitches.
