Jurgen Klopp has insisted he has 'no problem' with Chelsea manager Frank Lampard as the pair lock horns this weekend for the first time since an angry confrontation at Anfield back in July.
Lampard accused Klopp’s coaching staff of crossing a line and showing a lack of respect by leaping up, shouting and smirking at him during Chelsea’s 5-3 defeat at Anfield earlier this summer.
Klopp’s assistant Pep Lijnders was the target of Lampard’s fury and the incident, following the award of a free-kick for a foul on Sadio Mane, was picked up by TV cameras.
