It needed the sharp eye of a TV cameraperson to locate the ring in the middle of the pitch at Anfield. A relieved Klopp responded by kissing the ring in front of the cameras.
“I had a massive shock,” Klopp said, “but it’s back.”
Klopp had congratulated his players and was heading toward the fans while applauding, before he realized he no longer had his wedding ring on. He scoured the grass near where he was standing, even asking a steward if he wouldn’t mind helping in the search.
The Liverpool coach was then told where the ring was by the person operating the camera for British broadcaster Sky Sports.
“Oh my God, that would have been really awful,” Klopp said. “I lost it once in my life — I needed a professional diver because it was in the sea.
“From time to time when I lose one or two kilos, it’s not the right fit anymore.”
