A engineer from Northamptonshire says he is getting a “crazy” amount of attention due to the fact he looks like the new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Janos Malomsoki, a DJ from Corby, says people are stopping him in restaurants and in bars to ask me if he is the German manager

Janos, who lives in Corby, said: "People are actually stopping me in restaurants and in bars to ask me if I'm Jurgen Klopp.

Mr Malomsoki, orginally from Hungary, said: “It’s kind of funny - it gets you talking to people.

“It starts conversations and then people want to buy me a drink even when I tell them I’m not actually him.

“It’s great fun.”

Janos has lived in the UK for 12 years and has known people think he looks like Jurgen Klopp for a while having previously worked in Germany - Klopp’s home country.

While JurgenKlopp may be unaware of his lookalike, everyone has been telling Janos, 31, who thinks all the attention is "crazy" but "a lot of fun".

However, it is only since Klopp’s move to the UK that English people have really noticed the resemblance.

Janos said: “Now he is everyday news and in the newspapers a lot people are stopping me a lot more. It’s getting really hectic.

“At first I thought it was all a bit of a joke but people really do stop me and mistake me for Jurgen - it’s crazy.”

Mr Malomsoki said his five-year-old daughter even gets confused when he holds up a picture of Jurgen Klopp on his mobile phone.

He said: “My daughter’s mum mentioned it to me a couple of weeks ago but my daughter gets a little confused.

“When I have held a phone with a picture of Jurgen up next to my face she just asks why Daddy is in two pictures and how can he be on the phone and here at the same time.

“She is a little too young to understand.”

Janos’ work colleague, Liam Buchan, took the picture of Janos and Jurgen together and thinks there is no way people could miss the resemblance.

Liam said: “He looks exactly like him and Janos is a funny, great guy - just like Jurgen seems to be.

“As a Liverpool fan, I’m actually prepared to buy him a tracksuit and take him to the ground to see if we can get on to the side of the pitch without anyone noticing.”

Janos said: “I’m going to the hairdressers next week to have my hair cut a little more like his - I might as well give the people what they want while they’re interested.”
