Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has won numerous plaudits after leading the Reds to their best ever start to a Premier League season, but while he’s remained cool, calm, and collected when discussing the club’s title prospects, he’s been caught letting loose off the field in comedic fashion.
Videos of managers busting their unique, and often questionable, dance moves are not exactly uncommon.
Roberto Martinez, then at Liverpool’s rivals Everton, was memorably filmed at a Jason Derulo concert, a clip which spread like wildfire on the internet as the Spaniard cut some outrageous shapes.
Then there was Sam Allardyce who, during his stint at Sunderland, was spotted in a Marbella nightclub fist-pumping his way through Rihanna’s smash hit ‘We Found Love’.
More recently, unearthed footage of a youthful Pep Guardiola has done the rounds, during which the now Man City boss enthusiastically dances with a female companion during his time at Barcelona.
Now, it’s the turn of Klopp, who may well have inadvertently started a new dance craze after a tweet surfaced of the German boss enjoying himself at James Milner’s Charity Foundation Ball.
Klopp was filmed letting his hair down to Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 Burners’ tune ‘This Girl’ - a song usually more associated with Gini Wijnaldum - bopping to the beat while wafting his left-hand up-and-down in a bizarrely mesmerizing manner, with a beer clutched firmly in the other hand.
If Liverpool continue to dance to the tune of Klopp then come the end of the season the club may well have brought to an end their wait for that elusive Premier League trophy.
