Jurgen Klopp is the coolest manager around, I think that much we can all agree. Pep Guardiola previously held that mantle, but joining Bayern Munich is just a little too big time, allowing hipster Klopp to take the title.
And with Klopp inevitably comes his pop song. Released in 2011 after Dortmund won their first of two consecutive league titles by Matze Knop.
So altogether now: I wanna be like Jurgen Klopp, oh yeah, you wanna be like Jurgen Klopp.
I think we all that the trend of animals predicting football matches had probably run its course, but we were fools. Because this is an elephant. A ‘psychic’ elephant.
The elephant, rather disappointingly called Nelly (think outside the box, folks), has made the bold prediction in Serengeti Park, kicking a football into a net marked with Dortmund’s badge, indicating cruelly that they now cannot win the match.
And Nelly has form, having predicted results of German national team matches in the recent past.
Whilst watching Soccer AM isn’t necessarily recommended these days (it’s merely pushing that most horrible of entities – football bantz), everyone knows the ‘character’ on the show called Tubes and his rather alternative interviewing style.
It now appears, however, that Tubes has been keeping something else in his locker. In a recent charity game, he flicked the ball up before volleying home from 25 yards, the ball cannoning in off the underside of the bar.
In fairness, it really is a quite ridiculous finish, so hats off.
