Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp paused a press conference on Monday to tell a photographer to stop taking pictures as he couldn’t hear a question.

The Reds boss is under a little bit of pressure after the Reds’ slow start to the new season that has seen them pick up nine points from a possible 18 in the Premier League and lose their first Champions League group stage match to Napoli.

And now Klopp faces another challenge as Liverpool host Ajax at Anfield on Tuesday night in the Champions League with the Reds desperate to pick up their first points in a tough-looking group.

During his pre-match press conference ahead of the match against Ajax, Klopp was struggling to hear a question from one journalist because of the loud clicks made by the photographers’ cameras.

Visibly annoyed at one photographer in particular, Klopp says: “If you could just for a second stop taking pictures then I’ll understand the question…”

But the photographer is not paying attention to Klopp’s frustration…

“You with the camera!” Klopp says pointing at the photographer. “Aahhhhhh,” he responds in relief as the camera stops.

Before another photographer gets in one last shot and Klopp says: “Please! Five seconds break with the pictures then I understand the question.”

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson has been ruled out with an injury until after the international break after sustaining a problem late on in last week’s 4-1 defeat to Napoli.

Klopp told assembled journalists: “Robbo now is not 100 per cent. (He felt something) very late, 93rd or whatever minute – actually he felt it the next day only.

“But yeah, he is out for at least, I would say, after the international break.”

Guinea have called up Naby Keita for international duty despite the midfielder being injured and Klopp has now clarified the former RB Leipzig star’s situation.

“No, I don’t expect him to go on international duty,” Klopp added, while also talking about fellow Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“The expected return date is somewhere in October, that’s why we had to make the decision.

“With Ox it is the same and that’s why the two boys are not in the Champions League squad because of their expected return.

“It can differ a little bit, but we had to make the decision now or last week and that’s why we made the decision.”
