Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that he sent personal congratulations to Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool's Premier League championship victory last week.

Ancelotti said it was a sign of "respect" to put aside local rivalries and contact the Anfield manager after their Merseyside neighbours ended a 30-year wait for the title.

The Italian made the comments after being told that his midfielder, Fabian Delph, has been criticised by some fans on social media for sending a congratulatory message to Liverpool physio Lee Nobes.

Delph and Nobes were colleagues at their former club Manchester City, and Delph 'liked' an Instagram post of Nobes wearing a shirt with the word 'Champions'. Delph added the post: "Love it".

Ancelotti defended his player. "I think this is a personal behaviour. If you want to send a message to some teammates to congratulate them, it's absolutely normal. I sent a message to Jurgen to congratulate him for his success. I think it's important to respect, nothing more. I sent a message to congratulate him by phone."

Ancelotti hopes to join Liverpool in European competition next season by beating Leicester tonight and honing in on one of the remaining Europa League places.

"It would be a big achievement for all of us at the club if all the supporters could see European football, but it is a long way to go," (© Daily Telegraph, London)
