Watch Jurgen Klopp troll Liverpool star and a journalist

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp cracks a joke at Simon Mignolet's expense during media conference

Jurgen Klopp could afford to joke at Simon Mignolet’s expense after Liverpool were 2-1 winners against Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Reds goalkeeper was penalised for holding onto the ball for too long in his own penalty area in the first half at Anfield.

Senegal international Henri Saivet broke the deadlock from the ensuing free-kick to compound Mignolet’s mistake.

However, James Milner equalised from the penalty spot before Christian Benteke edged Liverpool ahead on the stroke of half-time.

But Klopp didn’t appear too bothered by the mistake after he poked fun at a journalist taking a long time to ask a question during his post-match media conference.

Liverpoool qualified for the Europa League knockout stage thanks to their 2-1 win against the Ligue 1 side.
