It all started with an innocent comment.
“We are not Harlem Globetrotters, we’re out here for results,” Jurgen Klopp said after watching his inexplicably almost hand a point to Leicester after fluffing several chances.
Having scored just six goals from their last 121 shots you understood what Klopp was getting at.
But his comments clearly triggered the Harlem Globetrotters.
Before we go any further, allow us to explain that the Harlem Globetrotters are an ‘exhibition basketball team’ featuring players like Brawley ‘Cheese’ Chisholm and Nathaniel ‘Big Easy’ Lofton.
So the Globetrotters hit back via Twitter.
You cant really argue with 4,211 consecutive wins, although you have to wonder if its time to find some new competition.
After all, Klopp could enter his side into the Liverpool & District Sunday Football League and go 4,211 games unbeaten.
Big John versus Philippe Coutinho. Now that’s something we’d pay to see.
We’d also put money on Simon Mignolet managing to conceded from a corner, no matter what the level was.
