Jurgen Klopp brushed aside some stinging remarks from football superagent Mino Raiola.

The football powerbroker also represents Mario Balotelli, and wasn't happy with how the German treated the striker, calling the Reds boss a 'piece of s***'.

Klopp was asked about the comments yesterday and gave a typically forthright and self-assured reply.

“0.0," he said in response to a question on the scale of upset Raiola's barbs had caused him.

“I know him. That’s all. Not interested, all good. It's a free world.”

Raiola was annoyed that the unwanted Balotelli was told very early on in the German's reign he was not part of his future plans.

Balotelli made a deadline day move to Ligue 1 Nice and stressed the Italy striker was not frozen out.

"We didn't isolate him," said Klopp.
