Jurgen Klopp in good form once again!
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is almost always good for a soundbite or two and so it proved once again on Wednesday.
The Merseyside giants beat Crystal Palace in the Premier League Asia Trophy thanks to goals from Dom Solanke and Divock Origi.
After the Crystal Palace win, Klopp was asked about the ongoing reports about Liverpool’s interest in Naby Keita.
Liverpool’s latest huge bid for Naby Keita
Before Liverpool played Crystal Palace, there was confirmation from RB Leipzig that they had rejected a massive offer for Naby Keita.
This is Liverpool’s third offer for Keita this summer and the Bundesliga club are holding firm, despite the fact the midfielder is reportedly open to an Anfield move.
RB Leipzig owner Dietrich Mateschitz, who confirmed the sum of the bid, telling Bild: “Lately we got a €75m offer for Naby Keita. No way! He has a contract and he will accomplish it.”
Jurgen Klopp’s hilarious chat about Liverpool’s latest Naby Keita bid
After the Crystal Palace match, Klopp was asked by a journalist about the 66 million pound bid for Keita.
The journalist questioned Klopp as to whether Liverpool will go higher than that for the RB Leipzig midfielder.
Cue a masterclass from Klopp as he deflects attention from the bid by cracking jokes about pretty much every angle of the move.
Among the highlights are Klopp saying to the Perform journalist: “What do you know?”
After cracking the jokes, Klopp gives absolutely nothing away!
