I’m not going to pretend I know a whole lot about the EPL, or international soccer as a whole — just because the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are hosting one of Europe’s premier clubs in Liverpool. There is a certain Notre Dame beat writer (I’m not going to say his name but it rhymes with Feet Bamton) that can probably help you more there. I really wish I did know more, and maybe that’s a new life goal.
What I do know is that Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, is a pretty damn good one, and his opinions carry a lot of weight around the world. So, when Klopp was asked about his time at Notre Dame this week and he gushed about the campus and the facilities — I wanted to make sure everyone knows that I think that’s pretty damn cool.
Here’s a short clip from Klopp’s press conference before their upcoming match against Borussia Dortmund inside Notre Dame Stadium — a newly real grass laid Notre Dame Stadium (it’s gorgeous by the way).
