Liverpool upload video of Jurgen Klopp playing football-tennis with Sadio Mane in Marbella


Following third-round exits in both domestic cup competitions this season, Liverpool have been able to fully concentrate on their Premier League title challenge.

At the end of January, they had an 11-day break and spent part of it enjoying the sun in Dubai.

Upon their return, they drew with Leicester and West Ham before a much-needed win against Bournemouth.

Now, Jurgen Klopp’s side have 10 days off before the return of the Champions League and the visit of Bayern Munich.

And this time, they’re in Marbella.

On Tuesday, clips emerged of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back in first-team training for the first time.

This morning, though, it was Jurgen Klopp in action that got Liverpool fans excited.

Klopp teamed up with Sadio Mane in a game of head-tennis against Roberto Firmino and assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders.


Liverpool's official Twitter account shared a clip of the head tennis match, with Klopp and Mane winning both the points.


Take a look:

And Liverpool fans were impressed that Klopp still looks pretty decent - despite admitting he wasn’t ever very good.

Klopp played for Mainz in the second-tier of German football for almost his whole career and explained how his love for the game made him continue.

"I was very average. I was really quick and a good header but that was it. Unfortunately, the ball spent most of the time on the ground and that was not my biggest strength," said Klopp.

"I loved the game too much to stop playing, which would not have been too bad for most of my teams I played in. 

"I enjoyed playing very much but I was not very good - that's how it is."

Maybe that’s why he impressed during a game of head-tennis - because the ball was never on the ground.
