VIDEO: Augsburg give Jürgen Klopp pretzel at post-match press conference

Bundesliga side oblige Liverpool boss with tasty snack after 0-0 Europa League draw.


Watch the moment Augsburg gave Jürgen Klopp a pretzel during the post-match press conference to Liverpool’s 0-0 Europa League draw in Bavaria.

Speaking to local press on arrival, Klopp had expressly requested pretzels at dinner since he found himself hard-pressed to get hold of them on Merseyside.

Such good sports are Augsburg – as evidenced by the handy Scouse-German phrasebook they released in the build-up to the Round of 32 tie – that they duly obliged him, enabling Klopp to merrily munch his way through the presser.

Augsburg also anticipated the fixture by offering to supply Klopp with a pair of emergency spare glasses, in reference to Christian Benteke accidentally snapping his manager’s specs while celebrating the dramatic recent 5-4 win at Norwich:

The Bundesliga side also featured on these pages recently when their goalkeeper Marwin Hitz was sent a bill by FC Köln for intentionally scuffing one of their penalty spots, an act which caused the home side’s Anthony Modeste to slip and miss a spot kick.
