Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp didn't try to hide his grumpy mood at his pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League tie with Ajax, but one inquisitor left him speechless.

As Klopp was bombarded with questioned about Virgil van Dijk's injury and the fall-out from last Saturday's Merseyside derby against Everton, the German looked like he would rather be anywhere else than in a zoom call with reporters.

Yet one long winded question left him exasperated, as a reporter who started his contribution to the event with the greeting of "evening Klopp" proceeded to ask the most ridiculous question of the evening.

"Do you have any chance against Ajax without Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara?" he asked.

"No," declared Klopp, before he rocked back in his chair and declared: "Oh my God, are you a journalist?"

It is fair to say this reporter fluffed his lines when he had a chance to quiz the Liverpool boss.
