Klopp slams 'waste of time' press conference after Harry Kane question

Klopp slams 'waste of time' press conference after Harry Kane question

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he will continue to play Loris Karis in goal in the Champions League when Liverpool take on Spartak Moscow on Tuesday night. They blew a lead in a 1-1 draw at Maribor, conceding an equaliser with five minutes to go.

"I am really impressed that we're in a Champions League press conference and we're talking about things like this", he said.

The tipping point came when Klopp, whose side are looking to take control of Group E by beating Spartak Moscow, was asked by one broadcaster which of his players "he loved" following Mauricio Pochettino's weekend comments about Harry Kane.

His patience nearly snapped when he was asked whether he was in love with any of his players, a reference to Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino saying he loved striker Harry Kane. 'Pochettino loves Kane and who do I love?' was the question. A waste of time'. You can back him at [2.6] to score in 90 minutes on the Sportsbook, and I think that's a great bet given Spartak's lack of speed in defence.

"Yes I love the club, that includes the players", Klopp added.

"Sometimes you need a punch in the face and we have had already a few - not too hard".

Sadio Mane should be fresh after his domestic suspension, and a fine display from Daniel Sturridge at the King Power on Saturday has given Klopp something to chew over.

"We know we can defend better and we practise in training". But he's a Tottenham player, I love good footballers, that's how it is'.

There is a big temptation then to follow the trend and make an investment on the goals to flow and it is just a question of how fearless you feel. Actually, that's not important for Russian Federation.

The draw has left Spartak sixth in the Russian top flight after 11 games of the season.
