Photos: Jurgen Klopp keeps his Liverpool promise

Jurgen Klopp watched Liverpool’s Under-18 side in action on Saturday morning.

After becoming the new Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp said that he will work around the clock for the club.

“Yes, from tomorrow, I’m 24/7 a Liverpool man, but now I have to do some private things,” Fox Sports quoted him as saying earlier this week.

It seems that Klopp meant what he said - about being at hand for Liverpool all the time.

On Saturday morning, the German boss watched the Liverpool Under-18 side take on their Stoke City counterparts.

Neil Critchley's side earned a narrow 1-0 victory in the encounter, as an Ovie Ejaria goal proved decisive at the Academy in Kirkby.

Klopp followed the game closely, and one suspects that he was pleased with the final result.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach has some time on his hand before ‘real work’ starts. Many of the Liverpool first-team regulars are on international duty at the moment and will return only next week.

Liverpool will face Tottenham Hotspur away from home at White Hart Lane in North London next Saturday.

The Merseyside outfit are 10th in the league table at the moment with 12 points from eight matches, just three points behind fourth-place Crystal Palace.
