Jurgen Klopp nutmegs Roberto Firmino during training
There are few things that embarrass a soccer player more than being nutmegged. Players are taught from the time they begin enjoying the beautiful game that one cannot be beat through the legs.
So, when the opportunity to slot the ball through someone's legs presents itself, the temptation is almost too much to pass up. For instance, we've spent many a break here at the FOXSoccer.com offices trying to "meg" Teemu, our producer Kayla Knapp's (and unoffical office mascot) pup -- usually to no avail.
While Liverpool were training on Wednesday night ahead of their Europa League match at Augsburg, the nutmeg temptation overcame Jurgen Klopp. His victim? The unsuspecting Roberto Firmino. Check out the evidence here:
Klopp nutmegs Firmino
Jürgen Klopp's reaction to nutmegging Roberto Firmino is brilliant. You have to see this!Posted by Liverpool FC on Thursday, February 18, 2016
A stretching Firmino put the opportunity on a silver platter for manager/troll Klopp, who capitalized to great success ... and amusement.
The Brazilian smiles and waves off the transgression, as if to say, "That doesn't count!" You'll notice he then closes his legs, though. Lesson learned!
