  • Jurgen Klopp was hilariously trolled by Manchester United fans at Old Trafford
  • The German manager had just watched his side drop two points in the title race
  • The treble dream hangs in the balance after a 3-0 defeat to Atalanta on April 11

Jurgen Klopp's farewell season at Liverpool has taken a significant blow this week. The Reds were aiming to win a treble to send off a manager who has served them diligently for the last nine seasons.

Their hunt for the Premier League title suffered a setback at Old Trafford when Manchester United held them to a two-all draw. It was the same ground where their quadruple dreams ended on March 17 after they were knocked out of the FA Cup.

In both games, Liverpool were the better side but failed to take their chances. The Premier League fixture saw Andre Onana face more than 15 shots. Luis Diaz opened the scoring before Bruno Fernandes responded with a long-range effort. Kobbie Mainoo then put the hosts ahead with a curling effort. Mohamed Salah saved Liverpool's blushes with a late penalty.

Manchester United fans troll Klopp

The result saw Arsenal usurp them at the top of the Premier League table on goal difference. After the game, Manchester United fans were heard trolling Klopp with a famous chant.

"He's cracking up
He's cracking up
He's cracking
Jurgen's cracking up"

Klopp is spotted, cupping his ears as he disappears down the tunnel.

The chant has previously been sung to Rafael Benitez after he failed to win the Premier League in the 2008/2009 season.

Liverpool face Europa League exit

Four days later, Liverpool were stunned by Atalanta 3-0 in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals at Anfield.

A brace from Gianluca Scamacca and one from Mario Pasalic saw the Serie A team take a commanding lead back to Bergamo next week.

When Liverpool overturned a 3-0 deficit

Liverpool faithful will, however, be buoyed by Klopp's previous exploits in Europe. In 2019, they were beaten 3-0 by Lionel Messi's Barcelona in Camp Nou in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.

However, as Sports Brief reported, Liverpool mounted a heroic comeback in the return leg, beating the Spanish champions 4-0 to qualify for the final.
