Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who is currently vacationing in South Africa during the FIFA international break, has been spotted by fans enjoying the sights of Cape Town.

Klopp was first snapped at Cape Town International Airport after landing in South Africa on Tuesday, shortly after attending a UEFA coaches' conference in Switzerland.

The German visited the Mother City back in 2017 as an ambassador for a local soccer charity for children, Joy is Round, and donated £10 000 (R188 000) to the initiative run by the Hout Bay United Football Community.

Sport24 reached out to Hout Bay United FC who confirmed Klopp's trip was purely a private holiday and is not linked to any official event at the club.

The 52-year-old was then spotted meeting 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and Proteas Test skipper Faf du Plessis who shared a picture on his Instagram account.

Faf posted a picture to his 1.1 million followers, writing "About last night... When ur bro @siya_kolisi_the_bear has a serious man crush moment when he meets one of his heroes... very impressive man . Get why his players love him so much . I’m a fan as well now????????".

Klopp has been spotted by a number of fans enjoying the sights of Cape Town.

On Thursday evening he was photographed at Dias Tavern and also attended the theatre production Kinky Boots at the Fugard Theatre nearby.

Liverpool, who currently enjoy an eight-point lead atop the English Premier League standings after 12 matches, next face a trip to Selhurst Park to take on 12th-placed Crystal Palace on Saturday, November 23 at 17:00 (SA time).
