Liverpool’s arrival in Thailand has been carefully scheduled and tended to, even down to having their own bus for the trip.
However, as reported by The Nation Thailand: ‘After the arrival ceremony, Klopp greeted Liverpool fans and got into a bus with the sticker “Tom Sermyon” instead of the fully-decorated bus waiting for the team.
‘After the incident, netizens were confused and curious as to why the team did not take the Liverpool bus, while the keyword “Tom Sermyon” also went viral’.

It’s a great moment for the local company that will have had a huge boost in publicity, thanks to the mistake by Jurgen Klopp and the rest of the squad.

Let’s hope the rest of the trip goes a little more to plan though, as preparations ramp up for the first friendly game – against Manchester United.
