Jurgen Klopp lost his temper during Liverpool's press conference on Monday after several noisy photographers drowned out a reporter who was asking him a question.
The frustrated German was seen squinting his eyes and craning his neck forward in an effort to hear as dozens of camera shutters clicked away in the background.
Eventually, he snapped, and like a teacher fed-up with the giggles at the back of the classroom, pointed at the photographers and barked: "I didn't [hear the question] … if you could just for a second stop taking pictures, then I will understand the question."

Oblivious to Klopp's request, the photographers kept clicking away, sending the Reds boss to the brink of a mini meltdown.
"You with the camera! Just for one second, please," Klopp growled. "Five second break with the pictures and then I can understand the questions."
Reaction to Klopp's outburst was mixed on social media, with many feeling the German was unnecessarily stern, and others arguing he had every reason to be irritated.
Did Klopp handle the situation well? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
"Klopp is constantly passive aggressive. Everyone and everything annoys him… anyone else behaved like him they’d be on a charge from the FA," one fan tweeted, while a second agreed, saying: "Such a baby. Most unlikeable bloke in football."
One user defending Klopp argued: "There's literally nothing wrong with what Kopp did here," while another asked: "Why are people pressed at this he’s asked politely for people to stop taking pictures to hear the question?"
Klopp was speaking ahead of Liverpool's crunch Champions League tie against Ajax at Anfield on Tuesday evening. The German manager urged supporters to observe the planned minute's silence in honour of Her Majesty the Queen, insisting that doing so would be "the right thing".
