Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Everton boss Marco Silva were both seen putting on the same pin badge during the post-match conference of the Merseyside derby.

The gesture was spotted by supporters on social media after Liverpool’s 1-0 win in the derby on Sunday, who questioned the meaning of the badge and why they were wearing it.

One person on Twitter asked: “Anybody know what Klopp’s badge is all about?”

While another said: “What’s that pin Klopp is wearing in the interview? Not the Rainbow laces one, the girl in the green jacket on her phone?”

The badge, which displays a girl in a green jacket, is a pin from the Megan Hurley Foundation which was created following the attack at the Manchester Arena last year where a Liverpool teenager died.

A spokesperson for Everton Football Club explained the badge’s meaning in a statement which read:

“Marco was wearing a pin badge for Megan Hurley Foundation, a teenager from Halewood who was one of the victims of the terror attack at the MEN Arena last year.”

“Megan’s family have now set up a foundation in her name, information about which can be found here”

“The two managers both wore a pin badge, as the likes of the Duke of Cambridge, Simon Cowell have done before.”

Both Klopp and Silva were also spotted wearing pride badges to show support for the Laces Out campaign which fights against homophobia in football and Sports in general.
