Jurgen Klopp has a reputation for being a comedian along with being one of the best managers in the world of football.

Klopp is in a good mood recently. Liverpool just beat Manchester City 3-1, extending their lead to nine points ahead of Guardiola’s team.

Due to some injury issues upfront, Klopp was asked about the potential signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“If he had not played for Manchester United before, then we might have considered him.

“No, but I’m not even sure he wanted to play here. We’re a pretty intense team,” Klopp jokingly commented.

“With that said, I couldn’t have had more respect for Zlatan. I love his whole career, love his efforts, love his confidence,” as quoted by Liverpool Echo.

After his managing career, it looks like Klopp could do well with a tryout as a stand-up comedian.

His team is now looking ahead at the Crystal Palace fixture, looking to extend their streak.
