Jürgen Klopp drops expletive on live television following comeback against Barcelona
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has never been one hide his emotions. The 51-year-old manager seems to always produce a must-see moment whenever he sets foot in front of a television camera.
That didn't change after Liverpool's incredible 4-0 comeback win against Barcelona on Tuesday evening. Moments after the match concluded, Klopp was asked by a journalist his thoughts about the game. To which he said (avert your eyes if you dislike profanity) "these boys are fucking mentality giants."
Check out the clip below:
With the emotions of the evening calming down, he cleaned up his statements during the post game press conference. Klopp praised his team saying they had "the mentality of giants."
Minus the aforementioned expletive of course.
The massive victory came for a Liverpool team that against all hope looked poised to lose to a Barcelona team that boasted a commanding 3-0 aggregate lead coming into Tuesday's clash.
The Reds claimed a victory without the likes of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Liverpool adopted the "next man up" mentality and received tremendous performances from Xherdan Shaqiri, Divock Origi, and Gini Wijnaldum.
Klopp and his squad celebrated with the Liverpool faithful after the massive win and look ahead to the Champions League Final in a few weeks.
“For me this club is big heart and tonight the heart was pounding like crazy,” Klopp said. “You could feel it all over the world. I am so happy we could give the people this experience. I am really happy having another chance to get things right.”
Liverpool looks to capture the European crown on June 1st in Madrid. They await the winner of Ajax and Tottenham.
