As is standard procedure these days, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp addressed the media on Friday ahead of his team's highly anticipated showdown with rivals Manchester United on Monday night.

The 49-year-old has endeared himself to fans with his character and personality both on and off the pitch, but when a journalist's phone went off during his most recent press conference, his reaction was simply hilarious.

Some of you may remember Roy Keane's rant as Ipswich boss towards a rude reporter whose phone rang on multiple occasions during one of his pressers. However, as you can see in the video below, Klopp saw the funny side of the phone call:

The German stopped the press conference and diverted his attention away from answering questions to try and listen to the ringtone as it played out in the room.

As we've seen many times since he moved to Merseyside, Klopp burst into laughter at his amusement and his comical nature is probably the main reason why the journalist got off rather lightly.

Liverpool vs Man Utd

The former Borussia Dortmund manager will be hoping that his team puts him in a similarly good mood in a couple days when Liverpool attempt to beat United at home in the Premier League for the first time since 2013.

Jose Mourinho's men drew against Stoke City last time out, while Klopp's side have scored the joint highest number of goals (18) in the league with Manchester City and find themselves three points ahead of United in the table.

Swansea City v Liverpool - Premier League

Klopp was rewarded for the Reds' impressive form when he was named the Premier League manager of the month for September, which included a win away to Chelsea and two massive victories at home against the champions Leicester City and Hull City.

With their hard-working yet exciting style of football thus far in the 2016-17 campaign, a win over United would all but confirm Liverpool as serious contenders for the title this year.
