If I'm being completely honest, I wasn't expecting to be writing about Alexandre Pato's knee and Jurgen Klopp today.

But that is in fact exactly what I'm writing about.

It's all come about due to the fact that Pato, the well-travelled Brazilian who now plays for Fabio Cannavaro's Tianjin Quanjian in the Chinese Super League, uploaded a brilliantly hilarious picture of him in training.

Posting on his Instagram story, the 27-year old reckons that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is living in his left knee.

Pato attached the picture with text that read "Klopp are you here???" accompanied by three laughing emojis and a tag for Liverpool's official page.

If you take a good hard look at the former AC Milan, Chelsea and Villarreal man's knee, it genuinely looks like the face of the Klopp, and it clearly gave Pato a good giggle.

Here's how Twitter reacted:

Pato, incidentally, was heavily linked with linking up with Klopp and playing for Liverpool in January 2016, but he instead signed for Chelsea on loan and played just two games before returning to parent club Corinthians, moving to La Liga side Villarreal and then being lured into the mega-rich Chinese Super League with Tianjin.

The Brazil international has scored six goals in 13 games in the CSL, as well as chipping in with two assists.
