“What a tremendous chap he is.”

Lorraine exclaimed: “I love that!”

However, there was just one problem, the chap wasn’t the footballer manager.

The fan was dressed in a Liverpool tracksuit and had a baseball cap on, what Klopp often wears, so his look was pretty convincing.

Viewers flocked to Twitter express their laughter at the gaffe.

One person said: “Hahaha as if the ITV news reporter thought the Klopp lookalike was actually Klopp.”

What did Lorraine viewers say?

Another laughed: “Guy on #lorraine on about that Klopp lookalike being on shoulders drinking with England fans – thinking it was Klopp??” followed by laughing face emojis. 

A third tweeted: “Ok, who’s going to tell this @lorraine reporter that it’s not actually Jürgen Klopp.”

One person tweeted Jonathan saying: “@SwainITV just seen your report on the football last night. You do realise that that was a Jurgen Klopp lookalike don’t you!?”
