Jurgen Klopp forced to intervene as furious Virgil van Dijk rants at official after first Liverpool red card

So rare was it for the Netherlands captain to receive his marching orders that he lost his cool walking off the turf at St. James’ Park, venting at fourth official Pawson with Klopp having to calm him down.
