Jurgen Klopp learns all about the runs as he provides too much information to the media

Jurgen Klopp got some shite news this week.

Klopp was told by his medical team that Liverpool would be without Gini Wijnaldum and Ben Woodburn for Saturday's Premier League clash with Newcastle.

The reason? Illness.

But the Reds manager was not content to leave the media with such a vague answer for the duo's unavailability.

Instead, Klopp was very eager to make the press aware that both Wijnaldum and Woodburn had been suffering from diarrhoea but, with English not being his first language, the German struggled to get the word out which is fair enough. It's a tough word.

Klopp was told by the reporters that it wasn't exactly proper to discuss diarrhoea publicly and it's safe to say that baffled the Liverpool boss.

"It's not allowed to say that in public?" Klopp asked. "Really? You don't say it?


"How can I learn the language when I cannot say [the actual words]."

Curiosity then got the best of Klopp as he looked to find a better way to say it and one journalist in attendance obliged him.

"Ahhh, they have the runs!" Klopp said. "Good teachers here. Thank you very much."

We wish both Woodburn and Wijnaldum a speedy recovery.
