Watch Jürgen Klopp Despair At This Bizarre Pre-Match Interview Question

"That's a waste of time"

Most Popular

As football managers go, trendy friendly German Jürgen Klopp is no pouting short fuse like your Mourinhos or your Guardiolas.

As such, you'd have to ask something fairly bloody stupid for him to lose his patience in a press conference.

Which is of course what one reporter did when interviewing him ahead of Liverpool's game against Spartak Moskva in Moscow this evening.

It was a poor start to the conference, with Klopp irked at being unable to hear the questions over the gunfire of cameras which blasted every time he tried to speak.

But the real highlight came when one English members of the press (always an English bloke isn't it?) recalled Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino recently commenting that he was "in love" with Harry Kane.

Either trying to be smart or inspire some rage in Klopp, he then asked: "Are you in love with any of your Liverpool players?"

Klopp replied: "I am really impressed that we are in a Champions League press conference and talk about things like this. I don't understand the business anymore."

He then added, "Yes I love the club, that includes the players. I love Harry too but he is a Tottenham player. I love good footballers that is how it is."

The question was so stupid that Klopp even interrupted the woman translating notes to his left to let her know it was a "waste of time" and not worth committing to paper.

Somebody get this man a talkshow.
