Watch: Klopp runs away from Guardiola – ‘Pep is coming!’

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp pretended to run away from Pep Guardiola when the pair met at a UEFA coaches summit.

The Reds went nine points clear of Manchester City on Sunday with a 3-1 win at Anfield, a game in which Guardiola was visibly unhappy about VAR decisions, but refuted claims he was being sarcastic towards the officials after the game.

The Liverpool manager was taken to one side by a journalist at the conference, and was first asked about his opinion on VAR – to which he claimed that change needs to be made – before questioned switched to his managerial rival.

 

 

Klopp was asked: “Did you speak with Pep?”

Not hearing the Man City manager’s name correctly, Klopp responds: “Pepe? Who is Pepe?”

The journalist clarifies and Klopp replies: “Of course we spoke, why shouldn’t we speak? We speak constantly.”

Klopp then trails off, looks over his shoulder, sees the unmistakable side profile of the City manager, turns back to the microphones and whispers: “Pep Guardiola is coming!”

Then just shoots off out of frame with a grin.
