Liverpool boss Klopp blanks English reporters in Augsburg

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp refused to answer questions in English after their Europa League stalemate at Augsburg.

Klopp refused to answer a journalist in English during a Europa League press conference.

He told a reporter that "now we are here in Germany I won't answer in English."

The German was in his homeland on Thursday for the Reds clash with Augsburg where they came away with a 0-0 draw.

When the reporter pushed him for a soundbite — using a German reporter as his translator — the much-admired coach refused to play ball.

He replied in his native tongue: "Say hello to your colleagues for me.

"I see them quite often by the way, so it can't be that hard to ask me that on Friday."

When a German reporter asked him if he should translate that for the English reporter, Klopp simply quipped "I don't care."
