Villarreal coach Marcelino was unimpressed by Jurgen Klopp’s celebrations after Liverpool’s win in the Europa League on Thursday.
Klopp celebrated in his usual enthusiastic manner after his side claimed a 3-0 win over the La Liga outfit at Anfield, sealing a 3-1 aggregate victory to move into the final against Sevilla.
Despite his happiness after Villarreal claimed a first-leg win, Marcelino found far less enjoyment in the German’s post-match efforts.
“On the opposing manager, he is what he is. He is how he is,” he said.
“He’s a great manager, but either winning or losing in those situations I keep quiet.”
A Bruno Soriano own goal sent Liverpool on their way at home before second-half efforts from Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana.
Victor Ruiz’s red card when his side were trailing 2-0 on the night had all but ended Villarreal’s chances.
“Things didn’t work out the way we had planned them. I think it hit us really hard, conceding that early goal,” Marcelino said.
