Footage shows vandals have defaced Jurgen Klopp mural near Anfield

Footage shows vandals have defaced Jurgen Klopp mural near Anfield

Liverpool face Rangers in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

A mural honouring Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been vandalised ahead of the club's Champions League group stage clash against Rangers.

Last month, those involved with BOSS Night teamed up with MurWalls to create the impressive artwork on Randolph Street, featuring the quote "y'know he said so" – a reference to the song Liverpool fans sing about Klopp on match days.

But just weeks after it was erected, the mural has been defaced. Twitter user @danielnicolson shared footage of the scene on Tuesday morning as many fans voiced their disappointment online.

The mural, which took four days to complete, is displayed just a five minute walk away from Anfield.

Jamie Webster, who has performed at a number of BOSS Night gigs and events in years gone by, expressed his delight at the mural after it was complete.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "With the murals of everyone that are going up around Anfield, it's only fitting that he has one. It's amazing. I've got nothing but love for Jurgen and his team."

Founder of BOSS Night Daniel Nicolson also said: "We're really proud to see the finished piece today and look forward to tens of thousands of reds seeing it over the coming weeks and maybe even the man himself."

Compared to the past few seasons, Liverpool have struggled for form in the opening weeks of the 2022/23 campaign. They currently sit in ninth with just two wins from their opening seven Premier League games.

In fact, at the time of writing, Jurgen Klopp's side are 11 points behind league leaders Arsenal with a game in hand.

It has been a tough start to the season for Klopp and his Liverpool side but he insists the club are working hard behind the scenes to find a solution.

“As always in life, when you spot a problem you think about it and think you have the solution," he said after the Brighton game.

"Then, of course, you expect the solution to be instant. Bang! Sorted! But, in football, that’s never the case. Even if we had won the Brighton game 3-2 - it would have been a completely different feeling obviously - but with similar problems.

“That’s why we just have to keep going. Yes, we have to improve, we have to play consistently better, we have to defend better and attack better. Pretty much everything."

Klopp added: “But it was only two years ago when we were in a really similar situation for different reasons. We lost all our centre halves and had to find solutions.

“We lost our game completely. Nobody could recognise us any more. We just wore the same shirts but couldn’t react as quickly as people would wish. But we found a way out because we worked on it and that is what we will do this time.”
