Jurgen Klopp's Hilarious Response To Seeing Pep Guardiola Is Behind Him
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had fans laughing after his hilarious escape from an interview after seeing Pep Guardiola was behind him.
Liverpool opened up an eight point gap at the top of the Premier League and nine over Manchester City after their 3-1 victory over the champions at the weekend.
Klopp will have seen Guardiola's actions during the game and likely knows how riled up the Spaniard is.
So he decided to make a swift exit from an interview saying 'Pep Guardiola is coming!'
"Pep Guardiola is coming!"

The two managers were attending a UEFA Elite Club Coaches Forum in Switzerland while their players jetted out for international duty.
They were joined by fellow Premier League bosses Unai Emery and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as well as Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri.
During the interview, Klopp was asked whether he speaks to his rival manager.
"Yes of course we (Pep) spoke. Why shouldn't we speak? We speak constantly."
The duo's respective sides have been locked in an intense rivalry at the top of the Premier League.
The game at Anfield was full of controversies mainly revolving around VAR.
Guardiola's reactions were extravagant throughout but one saw him fully lose his mind.
He repeatedly held his two fingers up to the fourth official before bellowing 'TWICE' into the heavens.
Pep guardiola not happy.

Perhaps it's reactions like that which make Jurgen Klopp wary of bumping into his main title rival.
It's good to see that Klopp can stay his usual self despite the rivalry between the two sides.
