JURGEN KLOPP dropped his wedding ring on the Anfield pitch after Liverpool’s clash with Newcastle tonight.
Despite dropping his ring there were no points dropped for his Liverpool side who returned to the summit of the Premier League table with a 4-2 victory over the Magpies.
Klopp was heading over to the Kop at Anfield to celebrate the superb victory with the fans when he dropped his ring on the ground.
He had to put a pause on his usual fist pumps to the crowd in order to search for his sentimental wedding ring.
And the German boss had no luck finding it until a Sky Sports camera man seemed to find it and point Klopp in the right direction.
The former Dortmund gaffer looked relieved as he picked up the ring before kissing it in front of the camera and reeling off with a smile on his face.
It isn’t the first time Klopp has lost his wedding ring either after he admitted he once had to have it recovered by scuba divers on Sky Sports.
Tonight’s incident was a small scare before all working out well in the end – not too dissimilar to what happened on the pitch for Liverpool.
The Premier League’s table toppers appeared to absolutely batter Eddie Howe’s Newcastle side, but couldn’t find the back of the net.
Mohamed Salah missed a penalty in the first half and Liverpool went in at the break drawing 0-0 despite a dominant display.
But the floodgates opened in the second half when Salah scored just four minutes after the restart before Alexander Isak equalised for Newcastle just five minutes later.
Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo batted away the Swede’s equaliser before Sven Botman made things nervy by making it 3-2 with nine minutes to play.
However Salah wouldn’t let his side sink as he redeemed himself by scoring a penalty at the second time of asking in the 86th minute to gift his side all three points before he jets off for international duty with Egypt.
