Jürgen Klopp flies back to Liverpool on private jet after starting new life with wife Ulla

Jürgen Klopp has returned to Liverpool ahead of a final farewell event with fans at the M&S Bank Arena. He was spotted touching down in a private jet.

Since saying goodbye at Anfield following the final game of the Premier League season against Wolves, Klopp has been spending time in Spain with his wife Ulla. The pair have been in Majorca, per the Daily Mail, staying in a luxury hotel while work continues on their mansion.

Klopp, who has recently joined Instagram, has been documenting his life post-Liverpool. He seems to be taking to it well, spending time on improving his padel game.

But he's touched down in Liverpool for tonight's 'An Evening With Jürgen Klopp' event. Hosted by John Bishop and LFCTV's Peter McDowall, it will also feature music from The Lightning Seeds, The Zutons and Alfie Bow.

Unsurprisingly, the event is a complete sell-out. In making the dash back to Liverpool on the day, Klopp is emulating host Bishop — who enlisted a helicopter to make the speedy trip between Anfield and a comedy gig in Sunderland so as not to miss seeing the manager's final match.

Klopp will then be back in Liverpool again next month, when he and Ulla attend one of the Anfield legs of Taylor Swift's vastly successful Eras Tour. Hosting the hotly-anticipated music event is expected to net the club a significant windfall.

Aside from that, Klopp has been relatively tight-lipped on his plans after leaving Liverpool. Ulla has apparently instructed him to take cooking classes and dance lessons, and we know that he does not intend to take up another post in management for at least another year, but only time will tell what he gets up to next.

Liverpool.com says: The interest in what Klopp is up to is only going to continue until he returns to soccer in another job. He might decide that he loves taking time off so much that he doesn't want another role, of course, but that seems unlikely given how intense his working life has been up to now.

Klopp will enjoy spending time by the pool (and on the padel court) for the time being, but it remains to be seen how much time off he will actually want. If he does decide to move into management again, there will be no shortage of offers. The German national team role, once Julian Nagelsmann departs, will more than likely be available to him for starters.
