Jurgen Klopp spoke ahead of Liverpool's 36th Premier League matchday clash with Tottenham and cleared up the row with Mohamed Salah: "It's completely resolved, there's no problem between us.
"If we didn't know each other for so long, I'm not sure how we would deal with it. But we respect each other, so there is no problem. We're absolutely fine with it, so we're moving on," he explained.
The German coach and the Egyptian player argued during the match between the Reds and West Ham United as the striker was about to enter the pitch. The situation occurred just after the Hammers had equalised through Michail Antonio. The stalemate meant the race for the domestic championship was all but over for Liverpool.
The tension of the moment of seeing one of your goals slip away was capable of pitting two people with an exceptional relationship against each other. So much so that Salah declared after the game: "If I speak today, there will be fire". But, according to the German, everything is now settled and the Anfield side will need both of them to get three points against Tottenham to keep their slim hopes of winning the Premier League alive.
