Klopp tried to sign Southampton boss at Mainz

In a strange twist of fate, it turns out that our current manager tried to sign the current Southampton manager while he was in charge of Mainz.

It's good to know that our obsession with Southampton began long before Klopp was even at the club, and long before Southampton were even back in the Premier League!

Speaking ahead of the match tonight, Klopp said: "I thought about signing him as a back-up striker for different situations when I was manager at Mainz.

"That would have been funny!

"Each little step in his managerial career, he has really worked hard for and deserves all the praise for it.

"It was a smart decision by Southampton to go for him."

We know little about Hasenhutl's career as a player but he certainly seems a decent manager and could well keep his side up yet.
