Jurgen Klopp ignores Pep Guardiola by racing past his rival to celebrate Dortmund cup win over Bayern Munich... before the pair eventually shake hands

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola was left riled after Jurgen Klopp added insult to injury by sprinting past the Spanish tactician following Dortmund's German Cup win.

Instead of going over to shake Guardiola's hand after Dortmund's penalty shootout triumph, Klopp raced over to his players to celebrate his side's progression to the final.

Klopp, who announced he was leaving Dortmund in April, did not even bat an eyelid at his rival as he was focused on congratulating the likes of Sebastian Kehl and Mitchell Langerak.

Klopp was fully focused on celebrating with his players rather than consoling rival Guardiola

Guardiola was finally granted some of Klopp's time after the cup encounter at the Allianz Arena 

The pair did eventually exchange words before leaving the Allianz Arena turf, while Klopp also found time to console Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

Guardiola failed to keep his cool during the match against Dortmund with the former Barcelona boss racing down the touchline in anger after officials decided against awarding his side a penalty.

The Spaniard, who had to be restrained by his coaching staff at one stage, eventually hugged the fourth official after his outburst before Klopp rubbed salt in his opposite number's wound.

Guardiola's emotions may have been particularly high after he heaped pressure on himself by claiming 'only the treble is enough' for a club of Bayern Munich's ilk.

'I know which club I am at and know that (league) champions and cup winners is not enough. Only the treble is enough,' said Guardiola.

Bayern Munich's manager has been linked with a move away from the recently-crowned Bundesliga winners during the last few months and Klopp has been tipped to take over the reins at the Bundesliga giants.

Club legend Franz Beckenbauer said Klopp 'is definitely an option at Bayern' ahead of Tuesday night's encounter.

Meanwhile, another former Barcelona midfielder was in the spotlight during the match as Thiago Alcantara executed an outstanding piece of trickery to skip past two Dortmund defenders.
