Jurgen Klopp clashed with a reporter who accused the Liverpool manager of insulting Africa because he referred to the Africa Cup of Nations as a 'little tournament'.

The Liverpool manager was asked before Liverpool's 2-0 win over Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday evening about the lack of international breaks until March but pointed out that some players will be playing at AFCON in January.

In his light-hearted response, Klopp said: 'No international break until March, I've heard that so often, but in January there's a little tournament in Africa, I just want to say.



After Liverpool's win victory over Porto at Anfield, Klopp was asked to apologise to the people of Africa for his choice of words.



I don't know why you understand it like that to be honest,' Klopp replied.

'I didn't mean it like that, come on so I was not even close to it being the idea in my mind that I want to talk about the AFCON as a 'little tournament' or about the continent of Africa as a 'little continent', not at all.

'I said, 'oh, there's a little tournament in January' and I didn't mean a 'little' tournament, I was just saying it's still a tournament, it's ironic.
