Jurgen Klopp was said to have lashed out at Liverpool stars for celebrating Andreas Christensen's red card during his side's 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old defender was handed a marching order just before halftime after stopping Sadio Mane from a convincing goalscoring chance.
Central referee Paul Tierney had initially given him a warning card but a second look from the VAR monitor rescinded the decision and made it a straight red.
While Christensen was vacating the pitch, Liverpool's substitutes reportedly broke into celebration as they applauded the decision.
It is at this point an angry Klopp turned to his bench and prevailed upon them to wind it in.
"Red card for Christensen. The Liverpool players in the stands clap and sort of celebrate. Klopp turns round from the touchline and shouts: “Are you crazy? We never ever do that," Julien Laurens, a member of the press, tweeted on the incident.
Meanwhile, despite managing to get through the half without conceding, the Blues went on to ship in two goals to let the Reds win the match.
Sadio Mane scored the two goals in quick succession, with his second coming from Kepa Arrizabalaga's howler.
The home side had a chance to pull one back minutes later after Thiago Alcantara conceded a penalty, but Jorginho squandered the chance as Alisson Becker saved his effort.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Thiago Alcantara's second-half multiple strings of passes in Liverpool's 2-0 over Chelsea has broken a Premier League record.
The Spanish midfielder who recently completed a switch from Bayern Munich on Friday, September 18, needed just 45 minutes to complete 75 passes two days after his signing.
It is also the most successful passes completed by any player with a maximum of 45 minutes in the Premier League since records began in the 2003-04 season.
