Jurgen Klopp left impressed by Italian translator ahead of Liverpool vs. Roma
A ball is yet to be kicked in anger and already we may have witnessed the finest performance of the Champions League semifinals.
We are of course talking about the phenomenal effort made by Jurgen Klopp's Italian translator during the Liverpool manager's prematch news conference.
After listening to Klopp respond at length to a question about the Roma match, the translator embarked on a full, word-for-word interpretation as the Reds coach watched on in awe.

"Was my answer really that long?" Klopp remarked, before offering the translator a congratulatory "Bravo" followed by a round of applause.
After ousting Manchester City in the previous round, Liverpool are set to take on Roma in the first leg of their semifinal at Anfield on Tuesday.
