It looks like there's romance brewing on Merseyside between Jordon Ibe and Jurgen Klopp, and Liverpool fans are absolutely loving it.
Ibe bagged his first goal for Liverpool in their 1-0 win against Rubin Kazan last night, and after the 19-year-old helped the Reds to their first European win in more than two years, Klopp could barely contain his delight.
"He is a good lad and a big talent, a very skilled player," he said. "He has a really good base and he feels good at this moment but he has to work on things and he has a lot to learn.
"If he is prepared for this then everything will be good."
Ibe was promoted to the first team by Brendan Rodgers before his departure, and made a splash by earning the man of the match award on his debut against rivals Everton last season as Steven Gerrard said goodbye in his final Merseyside derby.
However, under Klopp, Ibe has become a first-team regular and has featured in all but one of the German's games in charge.
Liverpool fans first took note of the affection between Klopp and Ibe when the former Borussia Dortmund boss greeted the young winger with a rather strange, if affectionate, slap to the face after the 0-0 draw against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
The pair's love was also evident during this training ground exchange, where Klopp offered Ibe his glasses after a wayward pass was sent in his direction.
However there's more to Ibe than just these moments off the pitch, and no doubt there will be plenty more to add before his career at Anfield is done, too. However he'll have to go some way to better this nutmeg against Bournemouth which is just ridiculous. And yes we're giving Klopp credit for this too.
Best of all though, is Klopp's reaction when he's asked about Ibe's goal last night. That's love right there:
Do you think Jordon Ibe can be even better than Raheem Sterling?
