Artist Erik Born, a Juergen Klopp fan, chronicled the life of the coach by painting pictures on a Mini.
This is the same Mini that was used by Mrs. Ulla, the wife of Juergen Klopp while at Mainz from 2003-2007.
Erik Born with his friends in the group “Kloppis” made this piece and named it ” Kloppocar .”

A team member named Ben Wild who lives in Dresden said: “Our group consists of 8 people from all over Europe. One of us bought this car and took us to work together.”
Ben Wild put their car on Facebook and received more than 50,000 likes from many fans around the world.
Another member is Born, the train driver even took a leave of absence to be able to complete their work. He revealed, “From November to now, I work an average of 10 to 11 hours a day…”
All the people in the group paint with their own free will with brushes and paint sprayers.
When the car is completed, they intend to auction the car to raise money to help those in need during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Erik Born also expressed regret when saying: “We also don’t want the car to fall into the hands of some rich car collector and then no one will see it again.”
