Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp complimented his translator on having a “very erotic voice” at a press conference ahead of the crunch game at Paris Saint-Germain.
After listening to the man relay his comments back in French for the benefit of local media, Klopp flashed a trademark grin and said:
That’s a very erotic voice, by the way, the translator. Congratulations. Wow. Again, please!
His reaction elicited much laughter from those present, with the German appearing in relaxed mood ahead of the crucial Champions League match.
The Reds go to the Parc des Princes level on points with Napoli at the top of Group C, but they would fall two points behind PSG with defeat in France.
On the other hand, a win would see them qualify for the competition’s knockout stages with one fixture to spare.
They triumphed 3-2 in September’s reverse fixture at Anfield thanks to Roberto Firmino’s stoppage time goal.
