Jürgen Klopp could play role in Europe Ryder Cup team

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp will be asked to assist Europe’s Ryder Cup team later this year, according to captain Darren Clarke.

Clarke is a season-ticket holder at Anfield and is prepared to ask the former Borussia Dortmund manager to give his team an injection of motivation as they prepare to take on the United States at Hazeltine in September.

A big admirer of "livewire" Klopp, Clarke has been impressed with the way the 48-year-old has performed since replacing Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager in October.

"I've already talked to the likes of Kenny Dalglish and Sir Alex Ferguson and I hope the latter will join us later in the year because he was a real inspiration in the team room at Gleneagles last time," Clarke told the Daily Mail.

"I would like to talk to Sir Clive Woodward as well because I'm sure he would have a lot to offer.

"But Jürgen is definitely someone else I will approach. He's an absolute livewire, isn't he? He's a bundle of energy and that can be infectious. He's a terrific motivator, so I want to pick his brains."
