Jurgen Klopp is being auctioned off for charity after going through a series of traumatising accidents which involve nearly drowning once, getting his head stuck in a hurdle and once in a gate.
Although this bovine namesake of Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp has had a tormenting year as he himself did with his own appendix surgery and a series of hamstring injuries weakening his team, but unlike Reds’s defenders, the animal is finally off to some good.
Jurgen Klopp the cow will be auctioned for charity at Hereford Livestock market on 3rd March, the day after Liverpool play Manchester City at Anfield.
The cow was saved from drowning in River Lugg by his owner, also a football fan — Tom Pearson, who lovingly named the cow after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
The cow is nonetheless helping towards a charitable end.
Talking to Western Daily Express, Pearson said “He seemed to be having more mishaps than the Liverpool defence and with a similar expression as Jurgen Klopp reacting to his team letting in a last minute goal at Anfield”
The proceedings from the auction will go towards St. Michael’s church, and the amount is expected to be fairly large as Mr Pearson is regarded as a top-quality cattle breeder in the area.
“We hope Jurgen Klopp’s sale will raise significant funds for St Michael’s and invite others to participate by donating cash, services or livestock to produce as large an amount as possible,” he added.
Jurgen Klopp’s injuries woes have worsened Liverpool FC’s season
Danny Ings, brought in this season from Burnley, had only started to find the back of the net in the latter games of the 8 he played this season. He suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in October during training and has no signs of recovery any time soon. Safe to say, and as the striker believes, he won’t be playing this season.
Daniel Sturridge also suffered an injury in December and has appeared in only seven matches this season, netting four goals.
To bolster his attack and defence, Klopp has been linked with former Manchester United FC striker Chicharito and FC Schalke defender Joel Matip.
