Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp makes this lovely gesture for BT Sport woman

Jurgen Klopp hug

Liverpool's immensely likeable manager consolidates his position as the nicest bloke in football.

In case you didn't know, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is proper sound.

During his unveiling at the club, he had the press room laughing at his 'normal one' gem. Later that day, he was photographed at a bar mingling with the locals in the heart of Liverpool.

And recently, he penned a heartfelt letter to the widow of a Leicester City fan who tragically died en route to Anfield to watch his team on Boxing Day.

As we said, proper sound.

But the big German took his affable qualities to new heights, so to speak, on Thursday night with this lovely gesture for a BT Sport reporter.

At 6'4, Klopp towered over the petite Natalie Quirk, who was set to hear his post-game thoughts after the Reds beat Augsburg 1-0 to reach the last 16 of the Europa League.

Such a height disparity may have made the interview slightly awkward but, being sound, the ex-Borussia Dortmund coach solved the dilemma by fetching a metal box for Quirke to stand on.


Suffice to say the deed also went down well with Quirk herself, who summed up the Reds boss on Twitter shortly after.

James Milner's fifth-minute penalty was enough to secure a narrow 1-0 aggregate win last night.
