Klopp deflects agent comments on Liverpool exit: It was German humour!

Jurgen Klopp has brushed off comments from his agent saying he could leave Liverpool because of the weather.

The Liverpool manager's agent Marc Kosicke suggested in a recent interview that Klopp could be tempted to switch Merseyside for a hotter destination.

Speaking on the eve of Liverpool's Champions League opener against Napoli, Klopp said: "There is nothing in that story.

"He wanted to make a joke so now I have to be serious.

"It is German humour but obviously nobody got it...I am completely fine with the weather.

"Let me spell it out, the weather has never been a reason for me to choose a city and it's certainly not a reason for me to leave the country.

"Maybe at the moment (in England) it's the most healthy weather in the world - we have enough rain, it's cool, pretty much the opposite of this room!

"There's nothing in that story. He's my agent and my friend.

"When I speak about the weather it was about the wind which can have an effect on football, but that is not allowed in England. But that is not to a reason leave the country. I am fine."
