The whole Liverpool squad appear to be heading into the summer in high spirits.

Their campaign looked over earlier in the season but, after an incredible victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League and just one defeat in 14 matches in all competitions, they could still salvage something from their season.

Jurgen Klopp has been at the club at the club for over six months now and his character appears to be having an effect on all of his players - on and off the pitch.

Klopp, along with many of his stars, have taken part in a strange, but brilliant, video of them reenacting famous movie lines.

The German manager and his players do have to work on their acting skills, though - especially Jordan Henderson, who lacks any sort of enthusiasm throughout.

The famous quotes came from films including, Taxi Driver, Batman, Jaws, Forrest Gump, Taken and Toy Story.

Take a look at the hilarious audition reel in the video below:

Our favourite moment? James Milner’s rather impressive impression of Forrest Gump.

One thing is for sure, the players and their boss were definitely enjoying themselves.

Big finish to the season

This kind of team spirit is what is needed if the Reds are to be successful this season. They face Villarreal in the semi-final of the Europa League as they attempt to win their first trophy since 2012.

Lifting the trophy would also see them qualify for next season’s Champions League - something that would mean Klopp would be able to attract world-class talent to Anfield this summer.

Winning the competition poses as their best chance to play in Europe’s elite competition next campaign as the Reds are nine points behind Arsenal in fourth, although they do have a game in hand.

But Klopp will be focusing on his next match as he takes charge of his first Merseyside derby on Wednesday night when Liverpool welcome Everton to Anfield.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager revealed that his players were thinking about the clash with their neighbours immediately after their victory over Bournemouth this weekend, something that Klopp welcomes.

Klopp on the Merseyside derby

"This morning when we were in the dressing room and we spoke a little about Sunday's game at Bournemouth I don't think anyone was really listening!” Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

"They are thinking about Everton. I'm okay with that. That's really cool. It's very exciting. It's important too.

"Derbies are always difficult to play because you have to handle the pressure. There's no advantage or disadvantage for either side.

"For me, I like these special games. I've been a manager since 2001. That's 15 years and each game is important. But with special games like this it's different from three or four days before it,” he added.

Klopp will be hoping his players perform better on the pitch than they did in front of the cameras.
