Jurgen Klopp celebrates six months in charge of Liverpool today and what better way to celebrate his ‘anniversary’ than a laughing compilation.

If seeing Klopp laugh doesn’t make you happy, you need to give your head a little wobble.

His first interview in England gave everyone a little insight into what was to come. He dubbed himself as the “normal one,” but we soon found out he was far from normal, he was a little crazy.
Even his own players think so.

Emre Can's quotes
"I’ve never had such an emotional coach. When you see him on the sidelines during games, see him springing around, then you see what type of man he is – that says it all,” Emre Can told Sport1.
“Jurgen Klopp is a great coach. Everyone who knows him knows he is a crazy coach, in the best possible way, and that will help the players.
“It makes it very fun to work with him and I’m learning a lot from him,” he added.
Inconsistent six months
While Klopp is always entertaining on the touchline and in press conferences, his side has been inconsistent on the pitch.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has been in charge for 40 matches, winning 17, drawing 14 and losing nine.
He’s failed to galvanise the Reds the way in which he would have liked with them sitting in ninth with eight matches remaining in the league table.
Klopp managed to guide Liverpool to a Capital One Cup final before a heartbreaking penalty loss to Manchester City.

But he still has an opportunity to salvage Liverpool’s season. They are through to the quarter-final of the Europa League and managed a 1-1 draw against his former club in the first-leg in Germany.
A Europa League triumph would see the club qualify for next season’s Champions League and would represent their first trophy since 2012.
In truth though, this isn’t Klopp’s squad.
He inherited an average Brendan Rodgers side and will need patience from Liverpool fans to work his magic.
That’s what he had at Dortmund - patience - and he managed to lead them to consecutive league titles and a Champions League final during his seven years at the Westfalenstadion.
Liverpool fans will be hoping that after six years in the job, there will be a compilation video of the trophies that Klopp has won - rather than just the funny moments in a press conference.
