Wenger enjoys Spurs dig with Liverpool boss Klopp

Arsene Wenger enjoyed a dig at Tottenham as he presented Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp with FIFA's The Best Coaching award for the year.

Wenger was brought out to name the winner of the managerial award, and during Klopp's acceptance speech he even had time to poke fun at former rivals Spurs.

Liverpool snatched a last-gasp win over Spurs on Wednesday night, with Roberto Firmino's 90th-minute header handing them a 2-1 win over their potential title rivals.

“Hello Arsene nice to see you," Klopp said.

Wenger then asked the German how he was before saying: “You have two really great days! Last night, you win in the last minute [against Tottenham] and today you win the best coach of the year, congratulations!"

Klopp collected the gong for a second straight year.
