Liver­pool man­ager Ju­r­gen Klopp says he was happy to take some tips from the tour­ing New Zealand rugby league team. The Ki­wis took in a visit to Liver­pool’s train­ing fa­cil­ity at Mel­wood, where they trained and ate along­side the Premier League foot­ballers, as part of their prepa­ra­tions for Sun­day’s sec­ond Test against Eng­land at An­field. Klopp, who chat­ted with New Zealand head coach Michael Maguire and was pre­sented with a Kiwi jersey by prop for­ward Jesse Bromwich, watched on as the tourists per­formed the Haka in the can­teen. “It was great,” Klopp said. “They are a bunch of real sports guys, I think it’s the third time now that we’ve had the op­por­tu­nity to host them. It’s re­ally cool. They had a good ses­sion, I hope. They are al­ways wel­come. We’re a very open-minded club, we’re open to learn from dif­fer­ent sports. I’m in­ter­ested in it ac­tu­ally. Ob­vi­ously the sport is quite dif­fer­ent but it’s still in­ter­est­ing to talk and have a chat. I en­joyed it a lot.”
