Rafa Benitez

The German successfully combined with the good folk at Sky Sports for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment that had shades of Rafa Benitez.

Liverpool fans may already believe that Jurgen Klopp has the magic touch at Anfield, but even sceptics will struggle to argue otherwise after the German appeared to make one of Sky Sports’ onscreen graphics disappear.

In a Vine that has been doing the rounds on social media, Klopp seemingly “magics away” an animation bar at the bottom of the screen advertising the Reds’ upcoming Super Sunday fixture against Newcastle United.

And the funny thing is, that this type of thing has happened to Liverpool before.

Last time around it was Rafa Benitez who seemingly had the wizard-like touch after making an onscreen graphic, featuring his name, appear on the screen.

Coming during a Merseyside derby in which Liverpool were 2-0 up on Everton, it’s worth noting that both Benitez and Klopp appeared to gain control of their respective broadcasts with their teams winning.

Much has been made of the German’s impact since arriving at Anfield and, on the basis of this and the resulting 6-1 win over Southampton, he appears to be doing the business.

Maybe there is such a thing as magic then!
