Why Jurgen Klopp ran on pitch and celebrated with Alisson after Liverpool goal

Jurgen Klopp has apologised for running onto the Anfield pitch following Divock Origi's 96th minute Merseyside winner.
The Liverpool boss was taken away with emotion following his side's bizarre late goal. Klopp celebrated by running onto the turf and hugging goalkeeper Alisson in scenes of jubilation.
The Brazilian shot-stopper played a key role in the goal, taking the free-kick early so Trent Alexander-Arnold could pump the ball forward.
Everton managed to clear the punt beforeVirgil van Dijk sliced a volley goalbound. The high ball came down directly onto Jordan Pickford's bar. The England shot-stopper flapped at the ball, inadvertently knocking it back onto the bar.
The ball then bounced onto the pitch where Origi pounced to head it across the line.
Anfield went berserk and Klopp joined in.
At full-time, the Reds boss explained his celebration and apologised.
"I have to apologise because I didn't want to be disrespectful but I couldn't stop myself," he told Sky Sports. "It just happened!
"The plan was not to run onto the pitch to celebrate! When I chose to stop I was close to Alisson. He was surprised!"
