Jurgen Klopp slaps Aleksandar Mitrovic as he shows appreciation towards Fulham striker in Liverpool draw

Jurgen Klopp showed his appreciation towards Alexsander Mitrovic by hilariously slapping him following his colossal performance against Liverpool.

Mitrovic starred as he scored both of Fulham’s goals in their 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

The big Serbian forward silenced his doubters having struggled in the Premier League following his heroics in the Championship.

And his stunning outing against Liverpool prompted a brilliant reaction by Jurgen Klopp, who jokingly slapped the Fulham man.

The German boss walked onto the pitch after the final whistle and shook the player’s hand before giving him a cheeky slap in a nod of appreciation.

Mitrovic has started the new season how he finished last season, having bagged an incredible 43 goals in Fulham’s Championship-winning campaign.

Marco Silva’s charges resume their league venture next Saturday at Wolves.
