Hilarious Jurgen Klopp video: Liverpool manager tries his hand at bowls with veteran Reds supporters
“Let’s play bowls!”
Jurgen Klopp celebrated his one year anniversary as Liverpool manager this week, and to mark the occasion he surprised some veteran Reds fans by joining them in a very special game of a very English sport.
The German was at his ‘BOOM’-ing best, and proved again just what a legend he is, as he traded the football pitch for a bowling green.
Wanting to put another tick on his ‘bucket list of sports’, Klopp revealed he’d been intrigued by the sport ever since he saw it being played during a short trip to England as a teenager.
“I got interested in it when I was about 16 years old and I went on a two week school exchange in…err…Luton! I was watching the Commonwealth Games and I thought what the hell is this?”
So he wrote to a local bowling club asking for a game, which came as a surprise to many of their long-term Reds fans.
“We got an email from Liverpool Football Club, which was very hard to believe,” said club chairman, Eric. “But it was true! Jurgen Klopp wanted to have a game of bowls with us – it was unbelievable!”
