Parents got shocked after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp turned up to a girls' football match, while unwinding during a short break from his duties on Sunday, the Liverpool boss was walking his dog in Formby.

But it seems like Klopp couldn't take his mind off football as he stopped to watch the under-18s ladies match between Ashton-in-Makerfield and Formby.

It didn't take long for eager parents to spot the German, who was engrossed in the game.

Rob Pratten, 48, from Preston, was one of the girls' parents who rushed to meet Klopp.


"But across the pitch, some of the parents noticed this tall gentlemen walking his dog.

"There were a couple of us that are Liverpool fans and we were shocked when we recognised that it was Jurgen Klopp."

His presence was kept quiet, with only a couple of parents going over to greet the 52-year-old.

However, once the half-time came round, Klopp was surrounded by 16 very excited teenage girls.

Rob said: "When the half-time whistle went, all the girls started screaming and running to him, but he really didn't mind, he took it all in his stride.

"My daughter was very excited, a few of the girls got individual photos. It's nice he gave that little bit of time."

"I'm not sure every football manager would have had that reaction. I told he him he was a legend, but he was so modest about it.

"It was fantastic to see him and I wasn't surprised to see him in his Liverpool cap and red jacket. He's Liverpool through and through, that's why we love him so much.

"Even some of the Manchester United fans were amazed to see how lovely he was."
