Klopp enjoys beer and soaks up sun ahead of Liverpool fixture announcement

Jurgen Klopp is soaking up the sun in southern France as he recharges for the new season.

The Liverpool boss has been pictured enjoying cold beverages and enjoying a kick about on the beach in Saint Tropez, a hot spot for celebrity holidays.

Klopp has been joined by wife Ulla Sandrock and a host of friends for the holiday.

It is one of the first occasions that Klopp has been seen out in public since Liverpool’s defeat in the Champions League final last month.

The German now has his sights set on the new season – and will be eagerly awaiting the 2018/19 fixture announcement on Thursday morning.

All 20 Premier League teams will receive their fixtures at 9am, allowing managers to start plotting the new campaign.

Meanwhile, Klopp has been named the best manager in Europe in a survey conducted by 248 players from the Bundesliga.

German publication Kicker asked players from all 18 top flight sides about their footballing opinions and Klopp came out on top, beating Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Klopp claimed 35.7 per cent of the vote in comparison to 31.1 per cent for Guardiola.

Klopp has helped turn Liverpool’s fortunes around since joining, with the Reds now one of the favourite to win the Premier League next season.

In the survey, Guardiola spoke about Klopp, saying: "He creates teams to attack the back four.

“I learned a lot in Germany the first time I played his team. I was new and it was ‘wow’, what a good lesson.”

Klopp is still in pursuit of his first piece of silverware at Anfield, despite losing three cup finals in the period.
