During the presser, a journalist asked Klopp, 'Because I'm never going to get the chance to ask you this again, any chance I could get a hug?'
During the post-match press conference, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was hugged by a journalist after team's pre-season friendly 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Friday.
Bundesliga giants thrashed a rusty defensive display from the European champions, who were missing several star players.
For Dortmund, Paco Alcacer, Thomas Delaney and Jacob Bruun Larsen scored the goals.
"It was a very difficult game for both teams," Klopp said afterwards. "I saw a lot of good things, and a lot of good individual performances, but obviously not enough.
"We're obviously not anywhere near where we want to be," he added, referring to the goals his team conceded.
However, during the presser, a journalist asked Klopp, "Because I'm never going to get the chance to ask you this again, any chance I could get a hug?"
In reply to that, Klopp said, "That's probably the best second question I ever heard?"
The German hugged the reporter and said: "you look like my doppelganger" before leaving the news conference.
