Klopp was on top form today.

Jurgen Klopp press conference: Liverpool boss sings happy birthday to colleague

Published Add your comment

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Jurgen Klopp. 

The Liverpool boss has made quite the name for himself in just a few short weeks in England since he took over from Brendan Rodgers at Anfield. So far he's slapped most his players, completely burned Simon Mignolet in a press conference and done his best to learn Scouse. That last one didn't go so well.

Another day, another press conference and another chance for Klopp to prove how strange - and strangely entertaining - he can be.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss was fielding questions from the press before Liverpool's Boxing Day fixture against Leicester, when he interrupted proceedings to point out it was the club's press officer's birthday today.

A normal human being may have been happy to leave it there and field questions about form and injury, but not our Jurgen.

Instead, he started singing 'happy birthday' to him. As you do.

Don't worry. We're impatiently waiting on the video too. 

Klopp had a few more serious matters to address before the showdown against Leicester. He'll have Mignolet back in action after the Belgian recovered from an injury which meant that Adam Bogdan had to deputise in his place, while defender Dejan Lovren is back too.

However James Milner is still sidelined along with Martin Skrtel, while Klopp also added there was 'nothing to tell' about Liverpool's reported deal for Red Star Belgrade youngster Marko Grujic. 

Do you think Liverpool can finish in the top four this season under Klopp?
