Ex-Super Eagles skipper and coach, Sunday Oliseh, was ecstatic to finally meet Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp on Saturday.
Klopp, 51, is regarded as one of the best managers in the game of football after incredible years at Mainz, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool.
The German was present to pay a final farewell to long-serving Dortmund goalie Roman Weidenfeller.
Weidenfeller, who spent nearly two decades at the BVB was given the perfect sent-forth party in front of 70,109 passionate fans watching in the stands.
The goalkeeper kept out two penalties and even scored two goals as the club’s legend defeated a selected XI 4-1.
Oliseh who was a teammate with the German goalie between 2000 and 2004, played for the Dortmund team with Klopp as coach.
The Nigerian took to Twitter to express his delight to meet the manager.
Great fun meeting Jurgen Klopp and helping to celebrate the career end of Dortmund’s great Roman weidenfeller.

Oliseh, who ventured into management after retirement, will definitely be looking up to the Liverpool boss.
Aside the Super Eagles, the 43-year-old worked at Dutch side Fortuna Sittard.
