Jurgen Klopp 'keeps secret beer stash' under Liverpool team bus seat

Homeland star Lewis is a lifelong Reds supporter and loves to watch his team whenever he gets the chance.

But the man who plays scheming businessman Bobby Axelrod in global TV hit show Billions has let slip one of the things that appears to make Klopp tick.

Quoted in Shakespeare column in the Mail, the 47-year-old lifted the lid on what goes on behind the scenes.

Talking about taking his son to watch the Reds for the first time earlier this year, Lewis said: "We got a little VIP treatment, which was very nice, and shown on the team bus. The driver showed us around.

"In the dashboard in the front, there was a cold box with some Cokes and a couple of beers, which Klopp always had.

"I went to sit in Klopp’s seat and hidden at his table was another little cold box with a few more beers.

"The driver said he thought Klopp had a couple before the game. ‘I bet he does! All those occasions where he’s losing his glasses’."

Klopp has become a popular character within English football for his maverick character.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss struggles to contain his enthusiasm on the touchline when he watches his team in action.

His animated methods of coaching and drumming up support from the stands have also been a hit at Liverpool.

And he can go off message in press conferences and interviews when discussing other topics that interest him away from the game.

But whether he really does like to have a beer before matches as Lewis suggests remains open to some question.
