The German boss was a dignified winner following his side's 6-0 victory at Villa Park.
The Reds were utterly dominant in Sunday’s 6-0 victory as they breached a flimsy Villa defence time and time again, with six separate scorers finding the back of the net.
While Liverpool fans revelled in the success, their manager was more dignified, as he told the club’s official website: “it’s not a day to sing songs or things like this, for us. That’s partly respect for Aston Villa, a great club in a difficult situation.”
And Collymore has now praised the Reds boss for those comments, labeling the German boss as a “class act” in a reply to a fan’s comment on Twitter.
While Klopp was keen to see his side keep their celebrations to a minimum in respect for Aston Villa, there is no denying he will have been delighted with what he was treated to in Sunday’s win.
The form of returning duo Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge will have been particularly pleasing, with the Brazilian being a creative force and Sturridge showing the striker’s instinct his side have been sorely missing.
He will now be hoping that they can maintain their fitness and this kind of form for the rest of the season as they eye a strong finish to the campaign.
