Jurgen Klopp and Daniel Sturridge.

Fan footage captures Jurgen Klopp doing the Daniel Sturridge celebration

Published 2 Comments

Even before Jurgen Klopp arrived in the Premier League as Liverpool manager he had developed a reputation amongst football fans as not your typical manager.

Throughout his time as Borussia Dortmund boss, the German became well known for his enthusiastic goal celebrations and unusual interviews, and that has continued during nine months in charge at Anfield - much to the delight of the club's fans.

And now we have the latest example of Klopp's unorthodox antics thanks to video footage shot by a fan at Sunday morning's ICC game against AC Milan in California.

Now there's something you would never have seen the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson do in the dug out.

Klopp might not be able to pull off the move quite as smoothly as Sturridge does, but it isn't a bad effort from the 49-year-old. In fact, he actually looks like he is giving some sort of instructional demonstration to the few fans that have gathered around him to watch.

Usually more well-known for his fist-pumping, high-energy celebrations any time Liverpool find the back of the net, maybe Klopp is preparing for a more stylish way to acknowledge performances for the upcoming 2016/17 season.

Or, maybe, the video is simply yet more evidence that the German boss is one of the most charismatic managers in the Premier League right now.

Whatever the reason this video exists, one thing is clear - the day Jurgen Klopp stops doing Jurgen Klopp things will be a sad one indeed.
