Liverpool boss Klopp turns on 'ignorant, joker' reporter

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was upset about jokes made by Amazon Prime presenter Marcus Buckland last night.

The Reds won 2-0 against Sheffield United in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

However, Klopp was in a sour mood post-game, as he was interviewed by Buckland.

Buckland asked: "You mentioned Jurgen, you've had to shuffle your pack, you've had a few injuries. You've got all these games, you're still going strong in the League Cup in the FA Cup. You go to Crystal Palace at your favorite kick-off time at the weekend."

The German replied: “That's brave. That's really brave, you made a joke about that."

He said: “You've still got the passion, you've still got the enjoyment. Is that the same day in, day out."

Klopp said in response: “It is. It is constant. We go home. I don't know what exactly the time is now. We get back 1am, 2am or whatever and we play again.

"We have two sessions. It's fine to recover and then we go again. Crystal Palace played tonight and that's absolutely fine. It's just not good. You don't understand it as well even when you work in football.

“Why should I try to explain again? You make just completely ignorant (comments). But it's good. Football is entertainment and I understand."
