"I pretty much like everything about it, to be honest. But I am not long enough here yet. We tried to figure out what we like most."

Klopp has fulfilled a long held dream by moving to the Spanish region as he previously told the podcast Klopp told the podcast Willipedia via Bild: "I've dreamed of having a house in the south all my life. I like the weather, the climate, I like the people. There are lots of things I like here and also people I already know.

"It's not like I'm looking for new friends. I already have friends for life, and if some of them are here too, that's cool.

"I don't want to emigrate. We go on holiday here every now and then. But when I'm here, I want everything to be as I know it. That's totally boring but the point is that I want to get to know a different life, but not somewhere in the jungle or on the mountain."

The Spanish island is also popular with Klopp's predecessor at Liverpool FC, Brendan Rodgers, as the two were snapped together last month. The Northern Irishman met with a journalist in Spain reporting for a Belfast publication, who managed to meet two ex-Liverpool managers in one visit.
