Jurgen Klopp wants wasn’t impressed during his Tuesday presser when one journalist asked him about his future at Liverpool.
Klopp’s future at Anfield is something that is rarely talked about despite reports having linked him with the Germany national team job previously.
Ahead of the Champions League second leg tie with Benfica where they have a two-goal cushion, and when asked about his future at the club, he found it intriguing after Guardiola was asked about the same with Man City.
“I saw Pep Guardiola saying he could stay there (at City) forever and you’re cheeky enough to pick that out and ask me now? Not too cool. Pep’s future has nothing to do with me,” Klopp replied.
On their game against Benfica, he added: “This is a super, super, super important game. We tried so hard to get to the Champions League last season and now we can make it to the semi-finals. That is incredible. It means a lot to us.
“I liked the game in Benfica. We were good. They wanted to isolate Darwin Núñez with Ibrahima Konaté. Really aggressive in a football sense, defended well, we know more about how they play.”
With the usual quadruple-themed questions being thrown his way, Jürgen Klopp was understandably keen to use today’s press conference to insist Liverpool wouldn’t dare look beyond Benfica.
