Watch: Jurgen Klopp's full-time celebration with Liverpool players is brilliant

Throughout his managerial career, Jurgen Klopp's management style has always been more 'shoulder to lean on' than dictatorship.

And his close bond with his Liverpool players was on full show in the aftermath of last night's impressive 2-1 win over Chelsea as he embarked on a 90-second man hug spree.

In scenes you are unlikely to see with any other Premier League manager - save perhaps Jose Mourinho - the eccentric German looked more like the players' mate rather than manager as he made his way around the squad to offer his own unique individual congratulations.

The video, courtesy of LFCTV, will bring a big smile to the face of Liverpool fans who must already be on cloud nine after seeing their team come out on top against another potential title rival this season.

From Sadio Mane and Joel Matip to Nathanial Clyne and Lucas Leiva, every player was recognised for his efforts as Klopp - like an excitable best friend -made the rounds at the full-time whistle.

Lucas even got a chest bump for his troubles. You can't quite image Sir Alex Ferguson employing the same celebration, even in his Manchester United pomp.


Klopp's unique management style has been one of the reasons Liverpool fans and players have taken him to heart so quickly and it certainly seems to be working.

Last night's win means the Anfield club have now taken 10 points from their opening five Premier League fixtures and have beaten Arsenal, Leicester City and now Chelsea along the way, whilst drawing with Spurs.

Given the way their team have started the season, there is a growing belief amongst supporters on Merseyside that this season could produce something special.

And, while there are still plenty of games to be played, it certainly looks like Klopp will have plenty more opportunity for man hugs if his players continue to play the way they are just now.
