Liverpool fans know very well that Bill Shankly once said (light-heartedly though): "Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that."
Klopp was asked if he agrees.
"Without a doubt, those 90 minutes are a kind of state of emergency for me, and I canít always rationally explain my behaviour afterwards. No, during these intense 90 minutes itís not a matter of life and death, but I wouldnít say itís much less than that."
