Jurgen Klopp storms out of interview and mocks reporter's appearance

Jurgen Klopp said that a reporter was ‘not in great shape’ before walking away from a post-match interview after Liverpool’s dramatic FA Cup defeat at the hands of Manchester United. The Red Devils left it late to claim a historic 4-3 victory over their greatest rivals, with Amad Diallo’s winner in the dying seconds of extra time sending Liverpool out of the competition.

Liverpool led twice but were pegged back on each occasion, with Harvey Elliott scoring what he thought was the decisive goal in extra-time before Marcus Rashford and Amad turned the tie on its head. Klopp was in a prickly mood after the final whistle, with the 56-year-old storming out of an interview with Viaplay after furiously mocking the reporter’s appearance.

The Reds manager was irked by the line of questioning when the reporter asked: “Normally intensity is the name of your game, so how come it became so difficult in extra time?” Klopp issued a stern response, saying: “A bit of a dumb question, I have to say, because you see us that often.

“If you never saw us, you could ask: ‘How can they have more resources?’. We played so many games recently. I don’t know exactly how many games United played. Really disappointed about that question, but you obviously thought it was good.”

The reporter followed up by asking: “So too many games?” before Klopp snapped back: “Oh, come on. You are obviously not in great shape and I have no words for you.”
