Why I Don’t Wear Suit During Games – Jürgen Klopp

Liverpool boss, Jürgen Klopp, says he is not always comfortable wearing suit that is why he prefers tracksuit instead on matchdays.

Klopp explained the thinking behind his casual matchday attire in an exclusive interview with Reshmin Chowdhury prior to his side’s win over Newcastle on Saturday.

“I have a suit for weddings, funerals and if somebody tells me I have to wear a suit. For me it’s not ideal,” he said.

“I have no reason to wear one. I don’t feel comfortable in it and I cannot breathe properly.

“I don’t want to have to think about my outfit before a game, so I’m really happy that the kitman can give me something that I can jump into.”

Klopp did wear a suit on occasions during his stint at Borussia Dortmund, as well as in the Europa League during his first season at
Liverpool – 2015/16 – but maintains there will not be a repeat of that in the future.

“When I first started in the Champions League I wore them because I was told by somebody it was a duty,” he added.

“But from the first time I saw another manager next to me not wearing a suit, I was done.

“I’m not interested in small talk. I don’t want to look good on the sideline, my team should look good. That’s my main target.”
