Jurgen Klopp Won't Wear His Trademark Glasses This Season And The Reason Why Is Interesting

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has ditched his trademark glasses after undergoing 'successful treatment' on his eyes over the summer.

The Reds returned to Premier League action on Saturday evening and ran out 3-0 winners over newly-promoted Norwich City.

In the dugout at Carrow Road was Klopp, who fans noticed was looking quite different to usual.

It's since been revealed by the Daily Mirror that Klopp has had surgery on his eyes in the last three months.

A source explained: "He's had a bit of treatment on his eyes which went really well. It means he doesn't need to wear his glasses all the time. But he still may wear them occasionally in the dugout."

Klopp has worn the transparent frames for his entire career in England and it'll take some getting used to.

Fans were quick to comment during the game and they're all hoping they'll get used to it sooner rather than later.

One said: "Seeing Klopp without glasses is like seeing your teacher outside school. It just don't sit right."

Another added: "Jurgen Klopp, get your glasses back or I'll resume supporting Arsene Wenger."

A third stated: "Klopp not even wearing his glasses in his MOTD promotional shot, it's over."

While someone joked: "Klopp should be sacked for not wearing glasses anymore."

Despite the 'outrage' Klopp's lack of specs caused, he saw his team ease to victory thanks to a Mohamed Salah brace and Roberto Firmino strike.

Liverpool finished third last season and were ravaged by injuries in defence.

Virgil van Dijk started his first Premier League game since October and managed to complete 90 minutes.

Klopp mentioned van Dijk's return in his post-match presser and admitted his star defender will take some time getting to top form.

He said per LiverpoolFC.com: "Nobody knows, not even himself, where he is - is he 90 per cent, 95 per cent? Fitness-wise he is 100 per cent, where you can be, otherwise he wouldn't have played, but from a form point of view, shape or whatever, it was different, so then each game helps.

"It was really good to see him again being back on the pitch, especially on defensive set-pieces, he looked really, really good.

"Offensive set-pieces with the two monsters, Joel [Matip] and Virgil, we were really good. We scored from a second ball, I think Mo's goal was a brilliant routine, really - getting a second ball in that area and finishing off. So, yes, it's nice to have him back."
