Jurgen Klopp Ripped Into A Journalist After Coronavirus Question Ahead Of Liverpool Vs Atletico Madrid

Jurgen Klopp tore into a journalist after being asked a coronavirus question ahead of Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid.

Klopp spoke to media ahead of tomorrow's Champions League round of 16 tie and a reporter asked if the German was afraid of his players catching the virus by playing football.

The 52-year-old snapped back with:

"Are you from Madrid? You live in Madrid - are you not concerned?"

When the journalist responded by stating he 'wasn't playing football', Klopp said: "That's not that special. Playing football is just a game.

"We are not the society, we are only are part of society and we should all be worried in the same time.

"That's exactly what I don't like - you sit and ask me this question, but you flew from Madrid to here. So stay there - they've closed schools and you're obviously concerned.

"But you think football is worth it to travel or whatever. So that's our common problem - we play football, but we cannot stop it (the spread of the virus) with football. We do what we have to do."
