German rock band Die Toten Hosen have sent Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp a birthday message with a special cover of their song.
Klopp turns 55 today (June 16) and it wasn’t just fans on social media who wished him well. At a concert in Rostock, Germany on Wednesday, the band performed a cover of their song to mark the occasion.
Campino’s lead singer is a lifelong Red and befriended Klopp shortly after taking over at Anfield.

The crowd joined in a rendition of “happy birthday” led by Campino, before the band burst into their own version of Klopp’s song. The chant was first sung by fans last season ahead of their game against Manchester City at the Etihad in April.
Ahead of last season’s Merseyside derby, Klopp admitted he was a “huge fan” of the song, which is sung to the tune of the Beatles classic “I feel fine”.
He said on Sky Sports in April: “I love the song, I really love it. If my name is on it I’m not 100% sure. [about how much a song should be sung]but I love the song… I even have it in my ear, I can’t get it out.
“They sing it a little too often, so maybe I don’t like that kind of attention too much! It’s also a Beatles song. The players even sang it on the bus, but they put Joel Matip. “I ‘I’m so glad Joel is a red’.”
