Liverpool boss Klopp happy to duck city centre during Double tilt: I've enough pairs of jeans!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is happy to avoid the city centre during their Double chase.

The German has bunkered himself down at the luxury mansion in the seaside town of Formby that he has been renting from Anfield predecessor Brendan Rodgers since arriving in England three and a half years ago.

Klopp said: “I don't go out — apart from football.

“Why should I? I have enough pairs of jeans to last me for the next 20 years, so I'm alright. I don't go to the shops. I don't do any of that.

“I can imagine the mood in the city is pretty good but I don't need to hear it, I don't need to see it.

“But it's football, and for most of my life I have been a pure football supporter, so if my team was doing this I know what I would have been like. My favourite thing would have been a situation like we have now, where it is buzzing.

“I can imagine people want to go out and celebrate, talk about it, but we are not part of that. We have to make sure it stays like this – and that's no problem.

“I love the situation we are in, it's really good, but of course we have to prove it every day and every game. It's all good, but it's not perfect, so we have to carry on working like we have been doing."
