Jürgen Klopp and padel?!
Yes, read that right!
Jürgen Klopp is also a total padel enthusiast and is even a brand ambassador for the Padel supplier Wilson.
The leading organ of the German advertising industry, Horizont, states:
However, the Liverpool FC coach is not promoting classic tennis rackets, but the sport of padel, a game derived from tennis. In concrete terms, Klopp - himself a big fan of the trend sport, according to his own statement - is to help successively expand the global Wilson padel community with innovations, strong partnerships and collaborations. The new racket collection "Wilson x Klopp" is supposed to stand for passion for the sport of padel and raise awareness for the trend sport throughout Europe.
And what does Jürgen Klopp say about padel?
Klopp himself adds: "While I spend my career coaching footballers at the highest level, padel has become my favourite sport. It really is the same passion - just for a new game! I'm very excited about the opportunity to work with Wilson and help shape the future of padel."
In any case, we are pleased that Padel Tennis will be further enhanced by Jürgen Klopp and hopefully become even better known and, above all, more popular!
