‘You Didn’t Shake My Hand’: Jordan Henderson And Jurgen Klopp Involved In Heated Touchline Row After Liverpool Captain Snubs Boss Following Substitution During Old Trafford Draw

Liverpool had struggled to break down United as they looked to go three points clear in first 

Jordan Henderson appeared to snub coach Jurgen Klopp during Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Reds were held to a frustrating stalemate against their fierce rivals and that looked to have spilled over when captain Henderson was substituted by Klopp.

In the 72nd minute, Henderson was taken off to be replaced by Xherdan Shaqiri as Liverpool tried to chase a winning goal. 

The conversation appeared fraught, which was not surprising considering the result

The England international handed over the captain’s armband to James Milner, tapped Shaqiri by the touchline before turning to the away end to applaud the traveling supporters. 

In the process, he marched past Klopp, who tried to grab him to shake his hand.  

Henderson carried on towards the substitutes bench, brazenly passing the German in order to take his seat. Klopp then recalled the midfielder to the technical area and appeared to say ‘you didn’t shake my hand’.

Henderson then did, but with more words exchanged before the former Sunderland midfielder forcefully removed his hand to make his way back to the bench. 

Liverpool struggled to find their rhythm in a match that was blighted – especially in the first half – by a spate of injuries.

Manchester United were hardest hit, losing Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and substitute Jesse Lingard in the first half – while Marcus Rashford carried a knock for the full 90 minutes.

Liverpool too weren’t immune to the injury plague and they lost Roberto Firmino in the first period after the Brazilian rolled his ankle.

The visitors never really got going and United seemed the more threatening side; they had a goal ruled out when Joel Matip put the ball into his own net after a Chris Smalling cross – however the defender was offside.

The result means Liverpool are a point clear of Manchester City, with both sides having played 27 matches.
