Jurgen Klopp spotted in Liverpool, Taylor Swift claims Anfield record

Former Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was back at Anfield this week to watch the latest Taylor Swift concert on her Eras Tour.

According to the This Is Anfield website, the 34-year-old pop megastar claimed during the show – which was the 100th on her global tour – that she had broken Anfield’s all-time attendance record.

Jurgen Klopp attended the first of three concerts held by Swift at Anfield this week.

Heart-shaped glasses

The German’s wife, Ulla, bought tickets to see the first show, Klopp revealed during a staff Q&A in his final week at the club, also disclosing he then started singing ‘Shake It Off’ to her, as per the Athletic.

On the night itself, the German was seen getting in the mood and wearing heart-shaped glasses as he took his place in an Anfield box to watch the sold-out show.

He was part of a crowd that, according to Swift, “broke the all-time attendance record for” Anfield.

This means there must have been more than 61 905 people, the number that attended an FA Cup tie against Wolves back in 1952.

However, Liverpool simply said that there were “more than 55 000” at the stadium.

‘Taylor time’

Quoted by the official Liverpool website, Swift said on stage: “While I was walking to the stage, they pulled me aside and told me another thing you did for us tonight.

“And that thing is that you, you broke the all-time attendance record for this stadium tonight. Don’t you just love knowing there’s never been as many people in this room as there are right now? I, personally, love that feeling.”

Prior to the show, Jurgen Klopp posted a video message to his over four million followers on Instagram, showing off his new haircut and declaring he was back in Liverpool for “Taylor time”.

As reported by The South African website, Klopp joined social media – and Instagram in particular – prior to his final match in charge in late May.

He also confirmed it was his first time back at Anfield since his emotional last game against Wolves on May 19.

The German, who celebrates his 57th birthday on Sunday, said: “I’m not Taylor made obviously, but I’m Taylor ready. Let’s go to Anfield and have a good night, or a great night would be cool!”

It appears Jurgen Klopp did indeed have a great night as, the following day, he posted a photo in a pink cowgirl hat with the caption: “I guess I’m officially a Swiftie.”

Swift reportedly wowed the Anfield crowd during a three-and-a-half-hour setlist.
