Klopp gives Liverpool something to laugh — and cheer — about – LA Times

Most soccer coaches prowl the sideline with the joy and passion of someone awaiting a root canal. Juergen Klopp races up and down his, high-fiving fans and behaving like a kid on Christmas morning.

When Klopp joined Liverpool eight games into last season, he replaced the dour Brendan Rodgers, who was often as expressionless as a Russian spy. Thirteen minutes into his introductory news conference, Klopp had all of  Liverpool laughing.

“They love it,” Christopher Beesley, a soccer writer for the Liverpool Echo, said of the city’s reaction to Klopp’s offbeat style. “Liverpool fans would never refer to his touchline demeanor as goofiness. They’re a very emotional club with emotional fans and his antics are lapped up.

“He does get carried away somewhat. But he is great entertainment.”

  1. The Mrs isn’t a huge footy fan…but I can get her to watch games now just to see Klopp go mental when we score 🙂

  2. The good thing about FOAR is that Joe can no longer be the first to post when he writes a piece:)
