Inspired by the viral tweet: ‘If I ever met JÃ¼rgen Klopp I’d say “omg if we have a baby we should call it Klipp” just so he’d raise an eyebrow at me and tell me I’m a moron and I’d be so naked by the time he’d finished doing that…’

From job interviews to furniture shopping in IKEA to making a birthday cake for their daughter, Klipp, Klopp Actually is a hilarious, warm and deeply silly diary of life with everyone’s favourite baseball-cap-wearing, bespectacled German football manager.
‘I shiver, my skin breaking out into tiny goosebumps. “Are you cold?” He whispers, his lips brushing my ear, making the fine hairs ripple. “A little.” I grin, pressing against his thigh. He runs a hand down the curve of my spine… “You should put a jumper on.”‘
