Kolisi spoke glowingly of the Liverpool manager after their first encounter in a candid interview at Anfield, revealing how starstruck he was when he met Liverpool FC coach Jurgen Klopp. .
“This was one of the highlights. He is such an amazing human being and I understand why the boys play so hard for him. He came and greeted every single person at the table and spoke to me for over 40 minutes. When I saw him, I fell off my chair”, Kolisi said.
Greatness recognises greatness while iron sharpens iron, Below are more images of how the born winner Kolisi spent his time on Merseyside home of champions, Anfield in a week that he reached another high by getting on board rapper and businessman Jay-Z’s sports management company, Roc Nation.
