Jurgen Klopp sarcastically applauded by Everton ballboy after goalless Merseyside Derby

Jurgen Klopp didn't really look in the mood for a laugh

Just imagine: you're a ballboy for your local club and get to watch your heroes week in, week out from the sideline. It's a Sunday and you've just witnessed your team deliver a potentially fatal blow to your bitter rival's title chances.

You're in good form right now and then you spot Jurgen Klopp coming towards you. Some children might abandon the tribal nature of rivalries and ask for a selfie or shake his hand, but not you.

No, you stand firm and decide instead to sarcastically applaud the manager of Liverpool Football Club on national (and international) television in front of millions of viewers.

He has a little word with you, but that doesn't stop you. Instead you give him an even more sarcastic thumbs up and applaud him again. For the lols.

Little do you know that people all over the world are laughing right now at what you have just done, nor do you realise that you're probably going to be an absolute hero among the Toffees at your school tomorrow.

Was it respectful? No, but to be honest you could probably push it and realistically claim that you were just applauding him genuinely. Even though you definitely, definitely were not.
