VIDEO: Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp hugs lookalike at press conference

"You look like my doppelgänger."


Perhaps the most bizarre ending I've ever seen at a press conference:

"Reporter" asks: "Any chance I could get a hug?"@LFC manager Jürgen Klopp grants him his wish and says, "You look like my f*cking doppelganger." pic.twitter.com/UDlUlyGAZJ

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp hugged a lookalike at the end of a press conference during his team’s pre-season tour of America.

In this clip, we hear a man who had already asked the German a question making a follow-up request for an embrace on the basis he’d “never get a chance” to ask him again.

What a command of English he has, even knows unusual words like doppelganger.

Ever the good sport, Klopp obliges the man – who is wearing a Reds shirt with ‘Virgil 4’ on the back – and tells him:

You look like my f***ing doppelgänger.

Next up for Liverpool is a friendly against Sporting Lisbon at the Yankee Stadium on Thursday before they return to Britain to play Napoli at Murrayfield on Sunday.
