Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp clashed with a reporter following the German's previous comments regarding the looming Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) starting in January.
The Reds are set to lose Mohamed Salah (Egypt), Naby Keita (Guinea), and Sadio Mane (Senegal) for the month-long tournament starting 9 January and ending on 6 February.
Last weekend, the 56-year-old was asked about the relief of having no international break until next year March.
"I've heard that so often that there's no international break until March. In January, there's a little tournament in Africa, I just want to say, and I think Asia is playing games, too - South America as well, great, can't wait," Klopp said on Saturday.
On Wednesday, Liverpool recorded their fifth victory in the UEFA Champions League group stages in a 2-0 win over FC Porto at Anfield.
During the post-match press conference, a reporter probed Klopp on whether he would apologise for calling Afcon a "little tournament" as it was insulting to players, fans and the people.
