Speaking to DAZN Germany, as reported and quoted in English by Mirror Football, the German admitted that Spurs are one of six clubs he enjoys watching in his free time.
Amongst those are Manchester City, who he’ll need to be watching anyway because of the title race, and Barcelona, who everyone loves to watch, as well as his former clubs Borussia Dortmund and Mainz.
And supporters in the comments of the above post seemed delighted about the surprising comments, with one calling Klopp one of their own despite him being a rival manager and another stating how much he’s “always liked” the 51-year-old.
