A sensational discovery
For football lovers, no need to present Jurgen Klopp. This famous coach who is known for having won the Premier League and the Champions League with the English club Liverpool has accumulated a number of victories on the football field.
What about on the courts padel ?
This is at Tenerife, during his vacation that the German technician discovered the padel. While enjoying a few days off with the members of his staff, he decided to try his hand at this discipline which is all the rage in Spain.
After a few lessons with a professional trainer and several games with friends, the trainer quickly becomes addicted.
It's so true that a track of padel has been housed within the grounds of the Liverpool FC training camp.
A sport that relaxes
Becoming one of the best coaches in the world, moreover of one of the most legendary teams in the English championship, is not easy. The daily pressure is high and the pace of work between training and matches can quickly become a stress factor.
