Jurgen Klopp spent his Sunday morning watching local grassroots football ahead of Liverpool’s first team clash against Manchester United on Monday evening.

The Liverpool boss continues to warm hearts of fans across Merseyside and he took the time out to enjoy some local football in Formby on the weekend.

The manager was pictured smiling with a young footballer and the image, which was uploaded by a local journalist and received lots of positive feedback on social media site Twitter.

Klopp has demonstrated his charismatic personality on a number of occasions during his press conferences and other appearances in the media.

His fun character appears to be having a positive effect on the club though and his side could go top of the table on Monday evening with victory against Manchester United.

Liverpool currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League table but could go level on points with Manchester City and Arsenal if they win.

Jose Mourinho’s side are three points below the Merseysiders in sixth spot but could leap-frog Klopp’s side if they win by more than three goals.

To some, it may seem like an odd way to prepare for such a huge game by watching local football, but for Klopp it could be interpreted as another demonstration of his relaxed approach.

Here is a selection of some of the fans messages on Twitter:
