VIDEO: Watch Jurgen Klopp's Hilarious Reaction to Liverpool Ace Taking Stray Ball to the Face

Tom Power

​For Liverpool fans, Jurgen Klopp's down-to-earth personality has already made him an Anfield icon despite his side's Premier League title collapse at the start of 2017.

For other football fans, the German's over-exuberant touchline celebrations are frowned upon, but Red supporters won't care one jot about the opinions of rival supporters. All they care about is how amiable, likeable and humorous their club's manager is.

All of those traits were on show during Liverpool's week-long warm weather training camp in Tenerife this week, and Klopp couldn't help but see the funny side of things when one of his players - Dejan Lovren - was pelted flush in the face with a football during one particular training session:

The Croatian defender was taking part in a crossbar challenge along with his teammates, but caught a wayward shot right on the gob midway through the session. Acting like a typical friend would, Klopp burst into fits of laughter as his centre-back lay prone on the floor.

To be fair, we would have reacted in exactly the same way as Klopp, so good on him for finding the incident funny and not rushing over to Lovren like a doting dad!
