Would you ask a virologist for an opinion on football? I don't think so.

I think there are two kinds of things you can have an opinion on. Some things you can have a subjective, personal opinion because in general there is no right or wrong. But things that have a factual basis, like viruses or climate change, an opinion that is not informed is worthless at best, dangerous at worst.

Klopp's point is he is a famous football manager, not a virologist. Fame adds no value to his opinion on coronavirus.

Why not?

A virologist might be a football enthusiast in their spare time, might even run a club!

Just because someone is expert on one thing, does not preclude them from being expert on another!

However choose your experts carefully before listening to their opinions

I think he is missing the point.  No one is asking him about coronavirus because they want expert medical advice, they're asking because they're just interested in what others think.  I asked my elderly neighbour for similar reasons.  

It's fine to have an opinion about any subject, so long as people understand your level (or lack) of expertise.

His point is that his views carry weight because he is famous. A lot of people will hear his views. Only you hear your elderly neighbour's.
