Jurgen Klopp hit back at a journalist who accused the Liverpool boss of insulting Africa after he referred to the Africa Cup of Nations as a “little tournament”.

It was not my intention but you made something [more] of it, so that is not so cool to be 100 per cent honest.”



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



“It’s all good, I didn’t mean it like that.

“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.

Klopp was asked before the game about the lack of international breaks until March but pointed out that some of his players will be competing for their countries at AFCON in January.
