You’re not the only one who has picked up a new hobby while stuck at home during this coronavirus quarantine. Manager Jürgen Klopp has also picked up some new skills himself. In this eight minute video interview from his home, Klopp reveals that he made his first scrambled eggs and his next challenge will be mastering the art of tying a tie.

Klopp also admits that this quarantine has forced him to take up running again. It seems that his knees aren’t what they used to be, but boredom has lead him to trying again.

What goes on in the team group chat? Apparently Klopp trolls YouTube for good Liverpool Champions League compilations and sends them for everyone to watch and encourages them to send their own in return.

He revealed probably the most shocking news: his favorite movies include Waterboy and Dumb and Dumber. It’s all silly comedies all the time for the boss, whose angry face during games has become its own meme. He’s also spent his time in front of the TV watching Downton Abbey, but has no interest in falling into Tiger King.

The whole interview is some lighthearted fun and a little look into Klopp’s life away from the pitch.
