The  Liverpool manager believes the 'offensive' banner is "another sign we're not where we want to be", with a number of other Premier League managers having condemned the incident.

Just minutes after Manchester City and Burnley players had taken a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement a banner which read 'White Lives Matter Burnley' was flown over Etihad stadium.

And according to recent reports Police are now looking into the incident.

Reflecting on the incident, on his press conference on Tuesday, Jurgen Klopp urges more to be done on tackling racism, insisting issues concerning racism must be discussed with great intensity.

"It's an obvious thing that all lives matter, you don't have to mention that, it just shows you don't understand a thing," the Liverpool manager said.

"It's another sign that we're not where we want to be. We need to be more convincing, to create more knowledge and educate our kids earlier all about equality, and that we are all the same.

"We perhaps failed in the past but that is over now. There is obviously still people in this generation who don't want to understand and we saw that last night.

"It was a sign that obviously there needs to be more time taken to convince everybody."
