Ex-Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sings 'You'll Never Walk Alone' at Champions League final

Former Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in London on Saturday night for the Champions League final, involving his ex-club Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.

The 56-year-old reached the same stage of the competition with BVB in 2013, at the same venue, but went down to Bayern Munich in a 'Klassiker' final.

Klopp also reached THREE Champions League finals with Liverpool, losing in 2018 and 2022 to Real, and winning the Reds' sixth European title in 2019 in Madrid against Tottenham.

Since leaving Liverpool, Klopp has been busy playing padel, holidaying in Majorca and returned to the city last week for a special goodbye at the M&S Bank Arena.

There is space in his heart for two clubs however and he was no doubt hoping for a Dortmund win on Saturday night.

The unfancied Bundesliga outfit battled their way past Paris Saint-Germain to take their place at the showpiece final, attended by the great and good of European football.

Among them was Klopp, who heard the familiar refrains of Gerry and the Pacemakers' classic anthem.

Adopted by Liverpool back in the early 1960s, the song has stood the test of time, being used by clubs around Europe too with the likes of Celtic, St Pauli and Dortmund making the song their own.

It was blasted out by the Wembley speakers as part of the pre-match routines, with Dortmund fans singing along lustily.

The TNT Sports cameras panned to the posh seats where they found Klopp.

Looking relaxed, the former Dortmund and Liverpool boss couldn't help but sing along.

It was in contrast to the high emotions on the final day of the Premier League season, when Klopp was moved close to tears when he heard it for the final time inside Anfield.

It marked a wonderfully poignant moment for Klopp, a Dortmund legend, a Liverpool legend and a man who has plenty of history with Wembley and with the Champions League.
