LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp blasted Roy Keane live on air after the Irishman called Liverpool's 3-1 win against Arsenal 'sloppy'.

The German was left stunned when giving the post-match interview, and wanted to double-check if what he heard was true.

Klopp said: "Did he [Keane] say we had a sloppy performance tonight?

"He must have been watching a different game. Nothing was sloppy. This game was exceptional.

"The football we played was absolutely exceptional."

Goals from Sadio Mane, Andre Robertson and Diogo Jota, on debut saw the champions coast to a 3-1 victory.

Alexandre Lacazette netted what proved to be a consolation for Arsenal who lost their unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

After being called out by Klopp, former Manchester United hardman Keane attempted to clarify his wording.

He responded: "I said there were sloppy moments, but I think you have been outstanding, I've been giving the club nothing but praise.

"I'm not sure you've heard me correctly."

Keane then told Klopp to 'hear the rest of it', before the Reds boss said he 'will 100 per cent'.

After Klopp walked back to the dressing room, Keane uttered: "Jesus. very sensitive, imagine if he'd lost."

Unsurprisingly the exchange was the talk of social media.

Many football fans wrote how Keane had got Klopp 'rattled'.

Chris Faers was not impressed with how Klopp handeled it, writing on Twitter: "Am I the only one slightly going off Jurgen Klopp?

"I mean you can’t even given the slightest criticism with him jumping down your throat.

"Your team is awesome; relax a little."
