Liverpool fans have reacted to old footage of a reporter humiliating himself by pleading Jurgen Klopp to move to Anfield.
The German manager previously managed the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund where he spent seven years, winning two Bundesliga titles in that timeframe and reaching the Champions League final in 2013.
Back in Liverpool, the Reds were in freefall after almost winning the Premier League title during the 2013/14 campaign. Poor recruitment and inconsistent performance meant that they trickled down the Premier League table.
During a media day at Dortmund’s Westfalenstadion, a reporter pleaded with Klopp to come to Liverpool:
A throwback to when this reporter begged Jürgen Klopp to come to Liverpool whilst he was managing Dortmund.

This guy deserves 1. A huge bonus 2. A job at Anfield in a reporting capacity and 3. A reserved space on the title parade bus.
