Juergen Klopp has taken the English world by storm. But the current fascination is understandable. He’s reached heights only pop stars attain, and Germans too are smitten by the Borussia Dortmund coach.
The above video is Matze Knop’s 2011 parody on Klopp. Knop is a German comedian, who has an online show called Knops Kult Liga for Bild. He’s known for his brilliant parodies of not only Klopp, but Jupp Heynckes, Louis van Gaal, Franz Beckenbauer, Mesut Oezil, Cristiano Ronaldo and the list is truly endless.
The above video ‘I wanne be like Juergen Klopp’ is his rendition of ‘Usher’s Love In This Club’ and includes clips of Klopp as well as Shinji Kagawa, Nuri Sahin, Neven Subotic and fans. The video ends with Klopp and his iconic laugh. I have to say his imitations are brilliant and the resemblance is unbelievable.
He also did a parody on former Bayern Munich player and Italian international Luca Toni. Since Knop doesn’t speak Italian, he essentially made up an entire song using words like Calamari, Pepperoni, Mama Mia, Mozzarella, Mortadella, Nutella, Cappuccini, Berlusconi and you get the idea.
So whoever said Germans lack humour was obviously wrong!
