Manchester United fan's newspaper column on his love for Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool FC v Leicester City - Premier League

Just like he said he would, Jurgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool fans from doubters to believers.

When the German took over in October 2015, Kopites doubted they would even finish in the top-four.

They finished eighth that season.

Now they believe they will finally end their wait for a Premier League title after moving eight points clear after just eight games.

Despite having stars such as Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Klopp is arguably the most important man at Anfield.

He’s completely transformed the feeling around the club on their way to reaching consecutive Champions League finals - winning one of them.

But it’s not just his success that has seen Liverpool fans fall in love with him. It’s his entire personality and character.

And it seems rival fans also appreciate Klopp.

Well, one Manchester United fan certainly does.

George Lewis - comedian and football columnist for The Times - wrote a rather hilarious column in the newspaper explaining his love for Klopp.

He writes Liverpool have “found a manager who not only plays attractive football and wins trophies, but he’s also impossible not to like.”

Lewis goes on to say: “His agent once hinted that the only reason he’d leave would be because of the weather. I now watch the forecast every evening, praying for rain. Each time the sun comes out, my heart sinks. The man is ruining my life!”


The loving continues….

“Everything I read makes me like him even more. His middle name is Norbert for heaven’s sake. And he’s married to a social worker. Last week he stopped to support a junior girls match while he was out walking his dog. I bet that dog has a brilliant life. Constant treats and tummy rubs. Now I’m jealous of a dog. Great.”

It finishes with: “If he stole your car, I bet you’d happily keep up the insurance payments. If he had an affair with your wife, you’d probably offer to mind the kids. It feels inevitable that, under Klopp, Liverpool are going to keep on winning. All I can do is keep staring out the window, praying for rain.”

Lewis may have just perfectly encapsulated the feelings of every United fans right now…
