Jurgen Klopp congratulated a translator on their “erotic” voice ahead of Liverpool’s key Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain.
A victory for the Reds would see them through to the Champions League knockout stages if Napoli beat Red Star Belgrade as well.
And the tension was eased ahead of the match, when Klopp sat back and listened to the French translator, before complimenting them on their smooth voice.
Klopp pointed to his ear and said: “That’s a very erotic voice by the way, translator.”
With the room of journalists laughing at his comments, Klopp added: “Congratulations. Wow! Again please.”
Back on to the match itself, Klopp admits he’s wary of PSG’s attacking talent and believes Liverpool have “no chance” unless they play at their best.
“Paris are a real package, defensively and offensively,” Klopp continued. “You have all their offensive players, then Adrien Rabiot, outstanding, Marco Verratti, the whole world wanted him two years ago. You cannot ignore that.
“If we are not at our peak, we have no chance.
“So you have to play football against them or you will never get rid of the pressure. With the ball, they make constant pressure so if you have the ball you have to control the game. You need really big balls to do that.”
