Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s final months at the club are being documented by cameras following the Reds’ first-team squad since December. Interest in the footage has heightened since Klopp’s decision to quit the Merseysiders. Streaming platform Disney+ is reportedly in advanced talks to buy the rights for the documentary, potentially bringing a £10m windfall to Liverpool. Reportedly, Disney+ has surpassed Amazon and Netflix in the battle to win the right to show the documentary due to concerns expressed by the latter over the lack of access to the Anfield dressing room.
Both Amazon and Netflix are uncomfortable with paying the £10m asking price for the documentary, as they fear they will not have much access to Klopp and the Liverpool first-team. Jurgen Klopp is known for his preference for privacy and has expressed his unwillingness to have his team talks made public. Hesitancy from Amazon and Netflix has reportedly put Disney+ in the driving seat to buy the rights to the documentary, leading to potential disappointment for fans who are hoping for an intimate portrayal of Klopp’s final months in charge. However, the documentary will show the race for the 2023-24 Premier League title.
Liverpool felt that the money offered by Disney was too good to turn down given that minimal demands would be made of Klopp and his players. The documentary will include the race for the 2023-24 Premier League title, and Liverpool can go eight points clear of Arsenal with a win at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
