Siya Kolisi and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp recently spent some time learning each other's sports. Check it out!

Kolisi and Klopp's history

The South African rugby player has been a fan of Liverpool for many years and met with the German manager in 2019 who eventually invited the Springboks captain to a UEFA Champions League clash with Napoli which was the first time that Kolisi came to watch the Reds live at Anfield.

The relationship grew from there as Klopp then wished Kolisi a happy birthday in 2021.

Courtesy of Adidas, Kolisi once again realised another dream in September when he met Klopp again and watched Liverpool’s players partake in Wednesday’s training session.

In his time there, the player took pictures with Thiago Alcantara while he also uploaded a video of him watching Virgil van Dijk in action. 

This time Adidas has combined the two for a wholesome video where the rugby player and football coach teach each other their skills. 

Klopp teaches Kolisi how to take penalties, free kicks and corners but the video is far from serious as the duo are funny and wholesome in the video as they take a keen interest in each other's interest.
