The interview then continued for a short period of time, before ending with a solid exchange of banter – something Klopp possesses in abundance.
Klopp told the reporter he would ‘see him tomorrow’, before being asked whether that would be at Liverpool HQ or again over the intercom in Germany.
The German tactician laughed before teasing his interviewer by saying “we will see”.
