Last week, a lookalike of German coach Jurgen Klopp, who now coaches Liverpool, scored after making an appearance among the fans outside Wembley Stadium, before the crucial match between Germany and England, for the European Cup.

In the video, he, who is dressed in the Liverpool training uniform, celebrates with the English fans and seizes the opportunity to have a beer while holding him in his arms. However, after the great success, many wondered who is this mysterious number that amazes the world for being similar to the German coach?
The English tabloid Daily Mail revealed his identity. The fake Klopp is England’s Ray Cornwell, a 61-year-old divorced British billionaire and father of three who runs a successful property development company in central London and also has business interests abroad.
The lookalike also owns a hotel in France and another in Morocco, runs a Mexican restaurant chain in the UK and owns a prestigious classic car rental business.
I grew up in southeast London and had very humble beginnings. Well, you could say I’m very successful, but what brings me the most joy and satisfaction is being Cheeky Jürgen (cheeky Jürgen). I just love him,” he says, a fan of Millwall.
The similarity is so great that ITV correspondent Jonathan Swain thought he was the real Anfield coach and tried to interview him. “The ITV reporter thought I was the real Klopp player and it shows how good I am. About 60% of the people I meet when imitating Klopp really believe that I am”
