Published by Nairaland on Thu, 25 Nov 2021

UCL: Klopp clashes with reporter after calling African Cup of Nations little tournament<br><br><blockquote>Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has lashed out at a reporter after he was accused of insulting Africa by referring to the Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, as a little tournament.<br><br>Before Liverpools Champions League match against Porto on Wednesday night, Klopp was asked about the lack of international breaks until March.<br><br>And in response, Klopp said, No international break until March, Ive heard that so often, but in January theres a little tournament in Africa, I just want to say.<br><br>And after Liverpools 2-0 win over Porto, a reporter returned to the Liverpool boss, asking him to apologize to the people of Africa for his choice of words.<br><br><br>The German said, Its all good, I didnt mean it like that. I dont know why you understand it like that to be honest.<br><br>I didnt mean it like that, come on so I was not even close to it being the idea in my mind that I want to talk about the AFCON as a little tournament or about the continent of Africa as a little continent, not at all.<br><br>What I meant was, if you watch the full press conference, then you might have understood it the right way if you wanted to because I said there are no international breaks until March now.<br><br>I said, oh, theres a little tournament in January and I didnt mean a little tournament, I was just saying its still a tournament, its ironic. Its still a tournament, a big one. We [will] lose our best players to that tournament.<br><br>I am not a native speaker but if you want to understand me wrong, you can do that all the time.<br><br>I really dont I know that I would never think like this. I dont understand why you thought this to be honest, but thats really not OK as I would never do that.<br><br>But that is it now. It was not my intention but you made something [more] of it, so that is not so cool to be 100 per cent honest.</blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="https://dailypost.ng/2021/11/25/ucl-klopp-clashes-with-reporter-after-calling-african-cup-of-nations-little-tournament/">https://dailypost.ng/2021/11/25/ucl-klopp-clashes-with-reporter-after-calling-african-cup-of-nations-little-tournament/</a>
