THEY say behind every great man there is a great woman – and Jurgen Klopp has revealed his wife, wanting to stay at Liverpool, was a big reason for his longevity at the club.
The Reds boss has always kept his family life relatively private and his current wife is said to have moved in with him after just THREE days of dating.
Here’s everything you need to know about the woman behind the Liverpool manager who aims to lead the Reds to their first-ever Cup win in English football.
Who is Jurgen Klopp’s wife?
Klopp’s wife Ulla Sandrock has been in a relationship with the Liverpool coach since December 2005.
The couple met when Sandrock worked as a waitress during the Munich Oktoberfest.
She is a children’s book author who published her first book, Tom and the Magic Soccer Ball, which is about a magic soccer ball that leads an 11-year-old boy to become a great soccer player.
The book was published in 2008, followed by a sequel in 2010.
She used to be a teacher in Kenya, teaching local children there.
Why was she called the “First Lady of the Bundesliga”?
Klopp’s kindhearted wife has been nicknamed “First Lady” due to her charitable actions and Jurgen Klopp’s status while serving in Germany.
While in Nairobi, she also worked as a nurse and helped starving children recover there.
Ms Sandrock also made headlines in April this year when she handed out £1,000 worth of grocery vouchers to supermarket workers at a Waitrose branch in Formby, near her family home.
Liverpool’s manager has always been full of praise for his wife as they both had children from previous marriages when they met.
He has spoken publicly about her books, saying: “It’s like Harry Potter, but it’s about football.
Sandrock was more graceful when she told the press that the book shows the “fascination of football” and “the longing for a distant heroic world”.
