Jurgen Klopp has sent a reminder to his Liverpool players about their conduct – but has played down his spat with Jordan Henderson.
The Liverpool boss appeared to clash with the club captain during Sunday’s derby with Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Henderson was unhappy about being subbed off on the 70 minute mark, and snubbed shaking his manager’s hand as he walked past him.
He later returned to the touchline to greet his manager and the pair shared a few words before finally shaking hands.
Reports claimed Klopp gave Henderson the hairdryer treatment in the changing room after the game, but the Liverpool boss has firmly denied this happened.
He did however remind his players about their conduct, explaining that when he subs someone off he expects them to shake his hand.
“In terms of the situation, it was a pure misunderstanding. That’s clear,” said Klopp.
“For me, when a player leaves the pitch, it’s clear, we shake hands. But I’m in the situation as well. I didn’t say you have to wait for me until I look at you again as I was with Shaq talking and then Hendo left.
“He was saying thank you to the crowd. I thought he didn’t (go to shake hands) and that’s why I turned and told him to do (go back and shake my hand).
