The German looked in high spirits while spending time with family members and friends
The Liverpool boss has been in good spirits, despite his club’s recent ongoing transfer saga with Lyon over a deal for playmaker Nabil Fekir.
Fekir looked all set to become the latest arrival on Merseyside after the two clubs agreed a deal for a fee in the region of £53million.
The France international had undertaken a medical and gone through the formalities of an interview with the official club channel ahead of the move.
Fekir’s medical results hampered the situation somewhat, with Liverpool reported to harbour concerns over the general fitness of the player with regards a long-term knee injury.

The 50-year-old guided Liverpool to the European final in Kiev, but fell short to Real Madrid
The 24-year-old suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament in his right knee while on international duty in September 2015, which sidelined him for just short of seven months.
Further complications saw the player require surgery to clean a joint in the same knee in August 2016, before picking up a contusion in the area in February this year.
Klopp looks set to turn his attention to other options, once his St Tropez getaway has restored a balance of relaxation.
Also on the German’s list of things to do is identify a goalkeeper for next season, with veteran stopper Simon Mignolet poised to move on after the World Cup.
Current No 1 Loris Karius still has question marks over his position in the side, following his nightmare evening in Kiev against Madrid.
