Liverpool boss Klopp responds to Milner bust-up claims

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has clarified claims of a huge bust-up with James Milner at the beginning of his Anfield tenure.

Former Reds defender Ragnar Klavan claims the pair almost came to blows almost five years ago.

"It must be a massive misunderstanding," Klopp told Sky Sports.

He added: "I don't know exactly what Ragnar's level is but we were not close [to fighting]. I know now which situation he means, but I didn't step in his direction.

"Everybody knows how I look when I speak or shout; it looks quite aggressive without being aggressive. Maybe Ragnar was not used to that yet.

"It was nothing. James Milner would never do that and I would never do that. It's all fine."
