Because what happens on the touchline is more interesting than events on the pitch.

LIVERPOOL MANAGER JURGEN Klopp will be the centre of attention in more ways than one on Thursday as he makes an emotional return to Borussia Dortmund.

The German will bring his new side to the Signal Iduna Park for the first leg [8.05pm] of the Reds’ Europa League quarter-final and a media frenzy is building up ahead of his return.

And German broadcaster, Sport1, have revealed they will have a dedicated ‘Klopp Cam’ service for the 90 minutes, which will allow viewers to watch the Liverpool boss’ every move.

“During the match we’ll offer our users on a Klopp live cam,” Sport1′s executive editor, Dirc Seemann, told Kicker magazine.

“It will be on him for 90 minutes, as a special for his homecoming. Once Jurgen Klopp gets to the Westfalenstadion in the team bus we’ll have our cameras on him.”

The broadcaster’s coverage of the game will span across six hours with Sport1 pulling out all the stops for the hotly-anticipated fixture.

For Irish fans, the game will be live on Setanta Sports – without the option to watch Klopp’s sideline antics.
