Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp apologises following his altercation with a Swansea City supporter during Monday night's 1-0 defeat at the Liberty Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he "should not have reacted" to the opposition supporter who targeted him during Liverpool's 1-0 defeat to Swansea City.

The Reds boss was allegedly on the end of some strong words from a home fan at the Liberty Stadium, which he took offence to midway through the second half.

Klopp was clearly riled on the touchline, not helped by his side's sluggish display to see their 18-match unbeaten run in all competitions come to an end.

Asked about the incident after the match, the German told reporters: "He was shouting at me all the time. Sorry, I reacted one time, I remind myself I am a human being and not a professional manager who takes that all the time and they can say whatever they want. At one point, I said 'please'.

"I had not a recorder like you so nobody taped it, nobody could hear what he said. That's fine. That's how it is. I have no problem with that. I just had one moment where I thought 'now, that's enough'.

"I'm not sure if we were already 1-0 down, I think we were, but it had nothing to do with it, but only enough. He felt quite good because nobody can do anything. He is in a good position. I'm sure I'm not the first manager [for this to happen to].

"I think he's a season-ticket holder. It's my fault as well, I shouldn't have reacted. But I didn't say anything bad, only that I showed I wasn't too happy by what he was saying all the time."

Against no side has Klopp lost more games against during his time in English football than Swansea (3).
