It's well known that Jurgen Klopp has a bit of a temper, but usually the man is in such good spirits that it seldom comes out in public.

However, one reporter felt his wrath on Thursday afternoon when she dared to ask him a rather inane question about Steven Gerrard.

The big news of the day is that the Reds legend has finally hung up his boots following the expiration of his contract at LA Galaxy.

Much speculation has surrounded the 36-year-old and what his next move will be, but it now seems that he is set to take up a coaching role with Liverpool after apparently turning down the chance to take charge of MK Dons.

Klopp had hinted that the club would help him get into coaching, but it was clear that he was in no mood to field too many questions regarding the ex-England international.

When asked whether he thought Gerrard ranked as one of the world's best players, Klopp exploded and went on a 90-second rant about how reporters were in the wrong place if they wanted to write more stories about Gerrard.

“This is not the room I want to speak about this. When something needs to be announced, we will announce it, then we’ll talk," he said.

Klopp then went on to list a number of legendary players and turned the tables on the reporter by asking where the question becomes important.

As the video shows, his restrained anger is really quite frightening, and we'd hate to be the subject of his annoyance when he's in full flow.


Liverpool will host strugglers Sunderland this weekend and will be hoping to bounce back from their goalless draw with Southampton last week.

The Reds were unable to pick up all three points and as such lost ground at the top of the table, and now sit in second, just a point behind leaders Manchester City.

Klopp will be without the services of Adam Lallana, though, who has been ruled out for a month with a groin strain.

But other than that he will have a squad with a clean bill of health to choose from.
