Watch: Jurgen Klopp Celebration Goes Viral, Manager Speaks on His Broken Glasses and Thrilling Match

As we welcome yet another week after a series of spectacular clashes in the Barclay’s Premier League, Jurgen Klopp’s glasses have featured the list of the trending news as far as Premier League football is concerned.

The charismatic German coach, who looked agitated on the sidelines as Norwich leveled the scores to 4-4 going into injury time, broke in the wild celebrations after Adam Lallana’s late winner.

Adam Lallana’s injury time strike gave the Reds a win at the nine-goal thriller at Norwich in one of the most dramatic Barclay’s Premier League game of the season.

The England international volleyed home in the last minutes of the game (95th minutes) as Liverpool secured a remarkable 5-4 victory at Carrow Road.

Lallana, who ended his eight-month Premier League goal drought with the dramatic last-gasp at Carrow Road, reacted by whipping off his shirt and running into welcoming arms of Jurgen Lopp before being descend on by teammates.

Klopp’s glasses were broken during the celebrations (the specs were accidentally wiped out by a stray arm from Christian Benteke).

Asked about the celebration that left him without glasses, Klopp said: “I don’t know, I saw nothing. Usually I have a second pair, but I couldn’t find them. It’s really difficult looking for glasses without glasses.”

It was not the first time Klopp’s glasses had been damaged during a match, with one broken pair featuring in former club Borussia Dortmund’s museum.

“We won for the first time against Bayern Munich and Nuri Sahin broke my glasses. Today it was Adam,” he added.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager didn’t like their some mistakes that saw them concede four goals, but Lallana’s late intervention was very amusing.

“It may sound crazy when I say we defended better today,” Klopp added.

“We’ve made different mistakes. If you win 5-4 it’s a funny story, but it’s not that funny. We have to solve it. Today we conceded four goals after set-plays, but we defended them better. We got all the goals after second ball set plays. Things like this can happen.

“That’s how life is: solve one problem and you have another one. They do what we have to do, defend the first ball, but because of our history they all stay in the box.”
Recognizing Norwich great efforts too, Klopp said: “”At the end we can be really happy with everything, nearly everything, especially with the three points. But a draw would’ve been deserved for both teams.”
