Jurgen Klopp the cow to be auctioned at Hereford Livestock Market

There is still plenty of moulding to do, but Wednesday's 3-3 draw with Arsenal shows that Jurgen Klopp's long-term Liverpool project is finally taking shape.
Jurgen Klopp has a bovine namesake.

He has had to cope with a hamstring epidemic, his own appendix surgery and panic among his herd when a football appears overhead, but Jurgen Klopp the Liverpool manager has nothing on Jurgen Klopp the cow.

A four-legged version has survived a drowning scare and two incidents in which he got his head trapped -- two of the few ailments not to have struck during the injury crisis that's dominated Klopp's time at Anfield since he took charge in October.

While the bespectacled German saw his team knocked out of the FA Cup on Tuesday by West Ham, his bovine namesake is about to go under the hammer to raise funds for charity.

Named after the Reds boss by his owner Tom Pearson, a football fan, "Jurgen Klopp" will be auctioned at Hereford Livestock Market on March 3.

He once fell into the River Lugg and was rescued by Mr Pearson, who recently had to recruit friends to free the animal after he got his head stuck in a gate. He then got stuck again and had to be cut free using an angle-grinder.

"He seemed to be having more mishaps than the Liverpool defence," Mr Pearson told the Western Daily Press, "with a similar expression as Jurgen Klopp reacting to his team letting in a last-minute goal at Anfield."
