Liverpool fans were left excited on Thursday, June 13, after it emerged that Jurgen Klopp had returned to Anfield, barely one month after managing his last game at the club.

After nine years at the club, Klopp bid an emotional farewell to Liverpool fans in May, and has since been replaced by Arne Slot - the former Feyenoord boss.

Klopp has made it clear on several occasions that he will forever be affiliated with Liverpool and has no intentions of managing any other Premier League team when he returns from his sabbatical.

Perhaps this explains why he finds it easy to still go back to Anfield, despite no longer having any ties with Liverpool.

The German’s Anfield cameo on Thursday, however, was not for footballing purposes, as he was there to watch a Taylor Swift concert.

Klopp shares update on social media

Klopp, who recently opened an Instagram account to connect with fans beyond football, shared an update on the social media platform.

"So, back in Liverpool and now it's Taylor time!,’ he said in the video.
"So, three things I had to do today. No, I had two. A barber appointment with Umut then... we're going out to Anfield. First time going to not for a football game but in the stands and watching Taylor Swift.”

In another video doing rounds on social media, the 56-year-old sat in the stands alongside his wife Ulla, who was clad in pink.

According to Liverpool Echo, Taylor Swift kicked off three nights at Anfield on her record-breaking Eras Tour on Thursday.

More than 150,000 fans of the pop star, popularly known as ‘Swifties’, are expected to arrive at Anfield for the sold-out tour.

Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool winning 2 titles

Sports Brief also reported on Jurgen Klopp’s interesting comments on the possibility of Liverpool winning two more titles at the expense of Manchester City.

The German won it all at Liverpool, including a Premier League title, the Champions League, the Club World Cup, two EFL Cups, an FA Cup, and the UEFA Super Cup.

He could have won more Premier League titles had Manchester City not gotten in his way on two occasions.
