Jurgen Klopp laughed uproariously before saying “wow” after the opening question at his press conference ahead of a friendly against Borussia Dortmund.
The Liverpool manager was clearly not expecting to be asked how long he was planning to the stay at the club.
According to the Liverpool Echo, he reacted thus: ‘First bellowing with laughter and then shaking his head, he tapped the base of the microphone while pausing for thought before responding: “Wow!”‘
He then composed himself before saying: “I don’t think a lot of people get asked that question three years before their contract is expiring.
“We will see. I don’t know if it sounded negative, positive, why should we think about… at least three years, that’s the answer, at least three years, umm, good.”
Klopp has now been in charge since October 2015 and currently has a contract that takes him through to 2022. He is not about to leave as he faces his biggest test.
