Jurgen Klopp Danced With Luis Diaz’s Brother After Champions League Final Defeat
| Last updated
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been filmed dancing with Luis Diaz’s brother after his side’s defeat in the Champions League final.
Klopp’s men dominated the final having had more shots on goal and ball possession but was faced with a stubborn Real Madrid defence and an inspired goalkeeper in the shape of Thibaut Courtois. A Vinicius Junior goal from a counter attack in the 59th minute ended up being the winning goal as Madrid clinched their 14th European crown.
Despite the bitterly disappointing end to their season, Klopp and his players were in fine mood as their fans lined the streets of Liverpool as the club put on a parade celebrating the victories in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.
Klopp has always been one to quickly put disappointments behind him as after the defeat in the Champions League final in 2018, he and his staff were filmed singing into the early hours. And it has happened again this year.
A video has emerged showing the Liverpool boss dancing with January signing Luis Diaz’s brother during a night out. It is unsure whether the footage was filmed the night of the final or the following night after the parade, but one thing was for sure, Klopp was really enjoying himself.
In the video, Klopp was seen dancing to the song Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars, he was still in his club tracksuit as he showed the world his dance moves.
This of course isn’t the first time Klopp has got onto the dance floor, having been filmed busting his moves in previous celebrations, most notably during the party after the title win in the 19/20 season.
Klopp showed his appreciation to fans during the parade on Sunday. Praising the turn out despite losing the European final the night before.
He said: “Without a shadow of a doubt, no club in the world – this world – that they lost the Champions League final the night before and the people arrive here in the shape they are, the mood they are.”

“Absolutely outstanding. This is the best club in the world – I don’t care what other people think!”
He added: “It’s an unbelievable season. What the boys did is unbelievable, what the coaches did is unbelievable. The concentration we kept up, the level we kept, unbelievable. All good. Now I have a holiday!”
“I love you all! And I’m not drunk, not a little bit, just emotional!”
