It’s always nice when someone truly gets it. Here’s a prime example.
Jurgen Klopp, famed manager of Liverpool FC, dismissed a question about the coronavirus outbreak this week and told a reporter that the opinions of celebrities are irrelevant.
Klopp was answering questions at a news conference Tuesday following his team’s FA Cup loss to Chelsea, according to CNN, when a reporter asked him a question about the virus.
“Are you worried as a team, as a club, about the spread of [coronavirus] or how it might affect you?” the unidentified reporter asked.
His response was epic:
“What I don’t like in life is that a very serious thing, a football manager’s opinion is important,” Klopp said. “I don’t understand it. I really don’t understand it.
“I can ask you, you’re in exactly the same role that I am.”
“It’s not important what famous people say,” he continued. “No, we have to speak about things in the right manner, not people with no knowledge, like me, talking about something.“
“People with knowledge should talk about it and tell people to do this, do that, do this, and everything will be fine — or not. Not football managers, I don’t understand that.”
Wouldn’t it be nice if more celebrities would answer questions they have no business answering like this?
