Liverpool boss Klopp's frustration with players heard at empty Anfield

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was left frustrated by his players during defeat to Atalanta last night.

Klopp was seen shouting from the touchline when Liverpool went 2-0 down to Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Reds were off colour throughout the match, in what was a dull contest for large parts before Atalanta capitalised on two Liverpool errors.

Josip Ilcic opened the scoring for Atalanta on the hour mark before Robin Gosens doubled his side's advantage just four minutes later with a close-range shot past Alisson.

BT Sport cameras picked out an animated Klopp screaming on the touchline, and fans heard the German shout: "Please, start playing football boys."

Klopp reacted to Liverpool going 2-0 down by making four substitutes at once.

Divock Origi, Georginio Wijnaldum, Konstantinos Tsimikas and Mohamed Salah all made way for the Reds, with Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Fabino and Andy Robertson coming on in their place.
