Former Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has returned to his beloved Anfield to watch pop superstar Taylor Swift in concert.

Klopp bid an emotional farewell to Liverpool when he stepped down as manager of the Premier League team at the end of last season, having achieved seven major trophies during his nine-year tenure.

“So back in Liverpool and now it’s Taylor time,” the 56-year-old said in a video posted on Instagram.

Swift is playing the first of three back-to-back shows at Anfield on Thursday as part of her record-breaking Eras tour, and will then move on to Cardiff, London and Dublin.

Klopp continued: “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 Anfield not for a football game but in the stands watching Taylor Swift. So, yeah, I’m not Taylor made obviously but Taylor ready.

“Let’s go to Anfield and have a good night or a great night would be cool. See you there.”

He captioned the post: “Going back to a place I know ‘All Too Well’,” referencing Swift’s 2021 hit song.

The UK leg of Swift’s mammoth international Eras tour began in Edinburgh, and saw the enthusiastic dancing of the nearly 73,000 Swifties picked up by earthquake monitors 3.7 miles away.

Swift is set to return to London in August to end the UK and European stint of the tour, which is estimated to be worth up to £1 billion to the UK economy.
