Honors were even at Anfield as Bayern Munich and Liverpool played out a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their round of 16 tie in the Champions League.Both Jürgen Klopp and Niko Kovac’s men put forth valiant, respectable efforts, but apparently things got a little heated between the two managers after the final whistle.
Liverpool boss Klopp looked annoyed at his Bayern Munich counter-part and, after wagging a finger at the Croatian, shook hands and walked off as Kovac tried to hold onto his arm.
However, both managers were keen to play down the incident as a misunderstanding in their post-match press conferences.”No, no, no. I wanted to shake Niko’s hand immediately and then he went in the crowd of his players,” said Klopp. “I thought he shakes the whole of Bayern’s hands.
“Then when he came back I said ‘I am waiting’ and he apologised and I said no problem and he wants to apologise again. That’s how it was.”
