Isolation routine: Jurgen Klopp settles for movies and dance

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp


Jurgen Klopp says he has spent his time in self-isolation watching the Taken trilogy and trying to dance like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Premier League season is currently on hold until April 30 at the earliest due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The British government has enforced strident measures to try and halt the spread of the virus, insisting that people must stay at home as much as possible.

And while Klopp is desperate for football to return, he has called on the public to be “disciplined” in the wider fight against COVID-19.

“I didn’t cut the grass but I tried the dance of Ox!” he told Liverpool’s official website when asked what he has been doing.

“Not as bad as you probably think! It’s very important in these times that we all show we take this situation seriously, but we are human beings. At the moment we are at home and when you are at home, you cannot do something to help outside.

“We are not health workers, we don’t work in a supermarket. You have to keep your own mood up and you have to keep the mood up for other people.

“If the boys do anything on Instagram, as long as it’s in a legal frame I’m overly happy about it – it just shows they are still cheeky and all that stuff. I like it, I like it a lot. I like the line-ups they do. All these things are really funny. It’s good.

“I watched a few movies – I watched the Taken trilogy again! To be honest, that’s how it is – you do a lot of things you usually don’t do. I’m still in that period. Two weeks is long but it’s not that long.”

“We said it now often enough and I think everybody knows, football is not the most important thing in the world. One hundred per cent not. In this moment it’s clear what is.
