The great and the good of the management world were congregated in Nyon, Switzerland this week as UEFA held its annual Elite Coaches Forum.

Mere hours after going toe-to-toe in the Premier League, both Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola momentarily put aside their rivalry to attend the event.

Unsurprisingly following his team's 3-1 win the previous day, Klopp was in a jovial mood as he arrived at the UEFA headquarters, joking with reporters as Guardiola sauntered in directly behind him.

When asked if he spoke to the City boss, Klopp replied "of course we spoke, why shouldn't we speak?" before, upon seeing his big rival appear behind him, ducking out of sight as he hastily whispered: "Pep Guardiola is coming!"

An ingenious way to both cut short an unwanted interview while also given the press pack exactly what they want. Well played.

"Pep Guardiola is coming!"
