Dortmund fans spot Klopp at Wembley

Before the match, Klopp was seen on the big screen inside the stadium, prompting the Dortmund fans to loudly cheer. @SamueILFC posted the clip on X.com (formerly Twitter). When the Black and Yellow supporters shouted Klopp’s name, he is seen waving his arms and shouting “Come on” shortly before the match kicked off.

‘I’m really looking forward to it’ – Klopp reveals Champions League final invitation

Klopp spent seven years as Dortmund manager, winning the Bundesliga twice as well as losing the afore mentioned Champions League final at Wembley in 2013. In one of his last interviews as Liverpool manager in May, Klopp told reporters that he was planning on attending the match between Dortmund and Real Madrid. He said: “I have got an invitation now for the Champions League final.

“They said, ‘I don’t think he will come’, but of course I will come, it’s the Champions League final and I have nothing to do really!

“But then I need more tickets too. It’s the first time in my life I’m asking for tickets – normally it’s me who is always being asked! It’s a really strange feeling. I never did, I never have had to ask for tickets.

“Now I am asking it really feels strange.

“That’s one thing, besides that we didn’t plan anything (after he leaves Liverpool).

“At the Euros we will watch games and have tickets for a few games.

“Being in Germany for a long time, meeting friends, nothing spectacular.

“Just easy-going, not planning a pre-season, I will definitely not do that, and not being involved in any transfer talks, which is such a difference.

“I’m really looking forward to it.”
