Reds manager: ‘What the F*** was that?’

JURGEN KLOPP has revealed his delight at ending Pep Guardiola's 22-game unbeaten run with Manchester City, exclaiming live on air: "What the f**k was that?!"

And the Liverpool boss also blasted critics taking aim at his leaky defence, adding: "Blow up my boots!"

Klopp was on cloud nine after masterminding a breathless 4-3 win over the title favourites at Anfield this morning.

A second-half blitz saw Liverpool race into a 4-1 lead before City grabbed two late goals to set up a nervy ending.

Loris Karius was heavily criticised at half-time by Sky Sports pundits Graeme Souness and Shay Given after his mistake gave City a vital equaliser.

But Klopp didn't care about the lack of a clean sheet, insisting Premier League fans had been treated to a real treat of a spectacle.

And after a four-letter slip-up during an interview with US outlet NBC, leading Klopp to joke he "thought in America it was OK (to swear)", the German told BBC Sport: "You can watch it as a manager or as a football fan and I prefer to do that - wow!

"What a game! Two teams, full throttle. This was a historical game you will talk about in 20 years because it looks like City will not lose another one this year.

"People watched this game all over the world and this is why - take your heart, throw it on the pitch and play like this, both teams.

"We played, I don't know which level, caused them problems like hell. I was not scared at the end, not that I didn't think we could concede a fourth, I have known my boys long enough now, it was so intense.
