Working with new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a 'masterclass every day'. That is the view of Reds coach Pepijn Lijnders, who has been in awe of the German boss since his first day on the job.
Lijnders originally moved to Anfield as part of the youth setup last August, having worked with PSV Eindhoven and FC Porto.
He is now involved in the day-to-day running of the first-team having changed roles at the start of the season under Brendan Rodgers.
And he admits that, since replacing the former Welsh boss, Klopp has brought the 'wow' factor to Melwood.
“For me as a young coach learning from the best it's the same as [the young players]. It's like a masterclass every day it's very simple,” he told the club's official website.
"You go to a congress and you see that one speaker and you like him and you think 'wow'. If you can work with that speaker every day that would be [fantastic] and that's the situation I'm in at the moment."
Klopp certainly produced an upturn in form upon his arrival on Merseyside, but his first sterling test comes having experienced defeat at home to Crystal Palace.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager went six games unbeaten at Liverpool and will now have to motivate his squad to get back to winning ways after the international break.
The Reds are already seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United and with a growing injury list their chances of a Champions League spot may hinge on the festive period.
