Has there ever been a manager quite like Jurgen Klopp?

Eccentric, passionate and kind-hearted, the German is adored by Premier League fans for his touchline antics and entertaining press conferences.

However, if it was at all possible, Liverpool fans love him even more after his interview with Match of the Day's Gary Lineker on Thursday night.

The 49-year-old produced a number of brilliant answers to questions about what he has in store at Anfield and how he would react to someone who acts like he does during football matches.

Scroll down for two clips from his interview, per BBC Sport.


Klopp said: "That's only one part of me. Most of the time I'm not that emotional - thank God.

"During the game something happens to me. Until now, I'm 49, and I still can't explain what it is.

"But if I saw another person doing what I do, I would think: 'Is he crazy?'"


"My problem is I am Christian," he later added, "so I think other people must have success too, it's not about me.

"But if you ask me about Liverpool, I would like to celebrate in six years, six times, after each season. It would be great.

"Really celebrate. Not the small thing - really celebrate something. Drive on a big bus through Liverpool celebrating with 600,000-700,000 people."

And after a moment of contemplation, he added: "Yeah, that would be nice."

Liverpool fans were likely glued to their screens throughout Klopp's chat with Lineker on The Premier League Show - and here's how they reacted to his words.


It really is impossible to hate him.

Klopp certainly has big plans at Liverpool but he must find a solution to his side’s inconsistency before achieving any kind of success.

The Reds blew away Arsenal 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium on the opening day but then slumped to a dismal 2-0 defeat to Burnley a week later, despite ‘enjoying’ 80% possession.

But if anyone can steady the ship on Merseyside, it’s Klopp.
