Liverpool boss Klopp loses rag with reporter: You're asking me? You make no sense!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp lost his rag in one post-match interview after the champions' 4-0 thrashing by Manchester City.

After the final whistle, Klopp spoke to Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves for the mandatory post-match interview - but was spiky after his team were thrashed by their rivals.

A number of times the Reds coach insisted he did not understand the question, before launching into a rebuttal against the reporter when asked about his side missing early chances.

Klopp replied: "You ask me?

"Why are you asking me if we had decent chances?

"We had moments but you watched the game completely calm why are you asking me if we had decent chances? It makes no sense, this question.

"We had decent chances, ask me about them.

"So we had situations, Sadio Mane in the box, but we didn't use them. That's true."

The German was confused when asked if Liverpool should apply some "perspective" to the defeat.

After Shreeves attempted to clarify, Klopp stated: "If you want to lead this story in the direction that we were not focused on that game, then do it.

"You've asked a second time now. You speak about attitude, I like my team, how they set up. I said that and I thought it was clear.

"I think we proved that point and I think we proved that City are an unbelievable team.

"So isn't it nice, in this league, that another team can be champion even when City plays this kind of football? That's a surprise as well."
