Jurgen Klopp confronted a ‘s***’ translator in the middle of a press conference for misinterpreting Jordan Henderson’s comments on RB Salzburg.

Henderson and Klopp were speaking before Liverpool’s Champions League group decider against Salzburg and the skipper was asked how the Reds would approach the game.

Liverpool need to win the match to progress to the knockout stages and Klopp stepped in to slam the translator when he incorrectly said Liverpool would ‘go easy in this game’.

‘It’s s*** when next to the translator sits a coach who speaks German,’ Klopp said.

‘The question was if the Champions League title from the last year helps us because we have always delivered in situations like this.

‘He [Henderson] doesn’t talk about going easy in this game. We are aware of this challenge. He is speaking about all this normal stuff.

‘You should really listen. Otherwise, I can do it by myself. It’s not too difficult.’

Switching back to speaking in England, Klopp said: ‘I am in a competition mood already, I can tell you.’

Henderson actually said Liverpool knew the game wouldn’t be easy, but were confident they could get the away win after a similar situation last season.

‘We need to preform, we need to get a result to get through to the next round,’ Henderson said.

‘Which we’ve proven before we can do. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to easy and we’re going to do it again.

‘But we can learn from those experiences. We know it’ll be difficult, but we also have confidence in our own ability and I feel if we can perform to the level we have been then we can get a good result.’
