JURGEN KLOPP has joked that he will have to show his best face to the female referee while on the sidelines during the Super Cup final against Chelsea or his mum will be on his case.
History will be made on Wednesday night with Stephanie Frappart becoming the first female referee to take charge of a major European men’s match.
The match will arguably not even be the biggest game she has refereed this summer having taken charge of the Women’s World Cup final last month.
But UEFA have been widely praised for the appointment of Frappart for the Super Cup between Liverpool and Chelsea as a huge step forward.
Ireland’s Michelle O’Neill will also be on the sidelines as one of Frappart’s assistants along with Manuela Nicolosi.
