Jürgen Klopp plays Crown Green Bowls at Holy Trinity in Formby

Jürgen Klopp makes an unlikely switch from the green turf of a football pitch to a Formby bowling green in an unmissable video that you can watch here. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp joined the Formby Holy Trinity Bowling Club for a game of crown green bowls to mark his first year on Merseyside.

On a recent day off from guiding the Reds to an encouraging start to the season, Klopp took a short journey from his Formby home to Holy Trinity Bowling Club to participate in an altogether different sport – crown green bowls. Klopp brought assistants Peter Krawietz and Pepijn Lijnders with him as he made his crown green bowls debut in Formby.

The game first caught the manager’s eye more than three decades ago, during a school exchange trip to England as a teenager, but how would he fare when aiming to find the perfect line on the green himself?

Klopp paired with long-time season ticket holder Lesley for a friendly – but fiercely competitive – tie against fellow fervent supporters Adrian and Peter amid the lush surroundings of the local club.

In between concentrating closely on his bowling technique, the boss also chatted with his three new friends about his first year on Merseyside, his hopes for what the team can achieve in the future and how he always remains positive.

He also discussed his approach in the transfer market, placing a heavy emphasis on a player’s personality as well as their quality on the pitch, and hailed the improvement of Formby boy Adam Lallana.

Jürgen also chatted about how he has settled into Formby life, going down to the beach with his dog and enjoying cask ales at the much loved Freshfield pub on Massams Lane.
