Jurgen Klopp as a manager is someone who is renowned almost as much for his natural charisma as he is his managerial ability. The German’s passion for the game is plainly there for all to see every time he is on the touchline, and even his press conferences are full of amusing takeaways.
During the game against Spurs at Anfield, Klopp somehow managed to outdo even himself, providing some comic relief midway through the game. Liverpool had just won a throw in and Klopp had the ball in his hand, waiting for his full-back to come and collect it whilst simultaneously giving his players time to organise themselves.
Sensing this, Spurs midfielder Dele Alli quickly jogged over to Klopp and snatched the ball away, quickly throwing it to Nathaniel Clyne. Klopp’s reaction? He held his position for a bit, before shrugging as if to say “fair enough” then gave the player a thumbs up!
See the amusing reaction below:
