German punk band wish Jurgen Klopp happy birthday with Liverpool inspired cover

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been wished a happy birthday by a German punk band who sung one of his chants.

Klopp has today (June 16) turned 55 with well wishes flooding in from Reds fans online. They weren't the only ones, with Die Toten Hosen marking the occasion with a special gift.

The Dusseldorf-based rockers took time out of their gig to get the thousands in the crowd to sing happy birthday to their fellow countryman, before covering The Beatles' track I Feel Fine – which the Liverpool faithful adapted last season to make a new chant for their side's manager.

Lead signer Andreas Frege, who is good friends with Klopp, used the lyrics which have been belted out at Anfield in recent months. They go: "I'm so glad that Jurgen is a Red. I'm so glad he delivered what he said.

"Jurgen said to me, you know, we'll win the Premier League, you know. He said so. I'm in love with him and I feel fine."

Klopp is presumably celebrating his birthday on a beach somewhere, with Liverpool not due to return for pre-season until later this month. He was handed another birthday gift in the form of the Premier League fixture list.

But they might well have given him a headache, as his side will face four 'Big Six' games after playing in the Champions League group stages the midweek before. Games against Chelsea (A), Arsenal (A), Manchester City (H) and Tottenham (A) all follow European fixtures.

At least the birthday boy was treated to an early present this week, with the £64million arrival of Darwin Nunez giving him plenty of reason to smile.
