WATCH: Jurgen Klopp’s transfer chat with young Liverpool fans is ridiculously cute

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp seems to be one of life’s good guys.

Whether he’s bear-hugging players or joking with journalists, the big friendly German appears to do everything with an endearing sincerity.

So when a group of young football fans were given the opportunity to sit down with him their views were treated with respect and courtesy.

Where other managers might have treated the Subway-sponsored chat as a boring duty, Klopp gave the youngsters his full attention.

And when the kids named a string of VERY ambitious transfer targets - including Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and former Red Luis Suarez - Klopp was honest abput the club's chances of getting any of them.

“Great players, all of them. But I think it will not happen, in this transfer window anyway.”
