Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he did not shake hands with his West Bromwich Albion counterpart Tony Pulis at Anfield because Sunday's match was not "friendly", but he has played down suggestions of a rift.
The two managers clashed on the touchline during yesterday's 2-2 draw on Merseyside.
When asked by reporters about his touchline spat with Pulis, Klopp said: "I didn't see him after the game. I can say nothing. We had some words in the game. Sometimes it takes more than a few seconds to cool down.
"Usually I shake hands, I did not today because it was not a friendly game."
Pulis later told reporters: "[Klopp] has got to do what he has got to do, I am more disappointed about the way they came back to make it 2-2. He is animated. I have been animated all my life on the bench. I have no problems with that."
