German journalists treat Kloppp’s return like it’s the resurrection of Christ

“Take a picture, it’ll last longer.”

Jurgen Klopp makes his return to The Westfalenstadion this week, taking on the club where he made his name as manager in the quarter-finals of the Europe League.

The Liverpool coach has got a lot of fans throughout the footballing world for his eccentric manner and overt passion for the game – but nowhere is he more beloved than in Borussia Dortmund’s own grounds.

The response of German journalists to Klopp’s press-conference entry is evidence of the excitement that surrounds the big German’s return to his former club.

Liverpool can’t win games on the amount of goodwill there is towards Klopp, but if they could then tomorrow’s match would already be a foregone conclusion.
