Jurgen Klopp’s famous hugs were in full flow after Liverpool’s dramatic but well-deserved 3-2 victory over PSG in their Champions League opener last night.
It’s no secret that the charismatic German is fond of embracing his players after the final whistle but when he was spotted dishing one out to the opposition’s star striker Kylian Mbappe, some excited Liverpool fans couldn’t help but think their manager was turning on the charm to bring the World Cup winner to Anfield.
Even though the 19-year-old sensation’s addition to the Reds’ already fearsome attack does sound mouth-watering, conjuring this crazy theory based on a hug appears to be nothing but wishful thinking by fans.
Nevertheless, Check out Klopp’s moment with Mbappe and the fan reaction to it below:
