Liverpool boss Klopp warns fans: Keep doing it and I'll lose respect for you

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he'll start losing respect for fans if they continue to barrack captain Jordan Henderson next season.

He believes the time has come for the England international to be given the credit he deserves.

"If that doesn't happen after this season, then I lose a little bit of respect for people, to be honest," says Klopp.

“It wasn't only after we brought him into another position, because he had brilliant games in other positions, no doubt that, in the number six for example.

“What can I say? The energy level Hendo and Millie had on Tuesday (against Barcelona) – and Fabinho, no doubt about that, but he had a completely different job to do – the chasing mood, I thought they were like wolves who nobody had fed for eight weeks. They were unbelievable."
