The Dortmund coach was given his marching orders after flipping out on the sideline as Neven Subotić was not allowed onto the pitch at the time when Gonzalo Higuaín scored the opening goal for the hosts.

But, by the time he had walked down the tunnel, Klopp had calmed down and went looking for a television to watch the remainder of the game on.

He happened to find one in the janitor's room, where he and Napoli janitor Vincenzo Gerrone shared a slice of cake and settled in to watch the remaining hour of the match.

"Mr Klopp was really nice. That was the best visit since Diego Maradona," Gerrone told Bild.

"I had a bit of cake and water there. Then we sat together on the couch and watched the game.

"Mr Klopp was actually quite calm, but also a little nervous."

Afterwards, Klopp gave Gerrone a signed jersey of Dortmund star Marco Reus as a sign of appreciation.
