With Liverpool gearing up for a title challenge this season having spent big this summer, there is are some other sports that are catching Jugen Klopp's attention, mainly Irish ones it seems.

In an interview with James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo, the German expressed his goal to one day go to both a hurling and gaelic football match in Ireland.

I have to watch hurling in Ireland. I also need to go to a Gaelic football match live for sure.

I have this kind of list and seeing the All Blacks playing rugby is on there too, probably a home game.


The former Borussia Dortmund man also spoke of his desire to experience a cricket match, but we'll assume that he ranks the first two as the most burning desires at the moment.

Klopp also revealed that he has been to a Boston Red Sox game this summer, Liverpool owner John W. Henry owns the baseball team:

It's really interesting. I heard there was a picture of me at the game where I looked quite bored, I wasn't bored! I was concentrated, I tried to get the game.

Tom Werner (chairman of LFC) explained it to me. Not that complicated, even I understood after a few minutes that there are actually tactics.

Speaking about the hierarchy at the club Klopp spoke in glowing terms of the current setup, stating that he has a strong relationship with the owners and praised FSG's Mike Gordon as well as sporting director Michael Edwards for the impact they have made at the club:

I've always known about the things we could do and the opportunities we have. There has never been any need to moan.

John and Tom are our owners too but Mike is my person. He's our man, in FSG he's the LFC man.

He's doing an outstanding job and has a big heart for LFC, that's how it is. He loves the club and wants what's best for it – that's the truth.

We like working together – Mike Gordon, (sporting director) Michael Edwards and myself. It's a really healthy relationship.
