Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet hailed Jurgen Klopp’s personality and humour which is already starting to have a positive effect on the squad.
“As you can see he is very enthusiastic and very ambitious. On the line, you can see that and it rubs off on the players. He is very positive and he wants everyone to go fullblast, like he is as well. And that is good because it goes on to the young players and they can thrive on that. His sense of humour is different. It is not English, it is German. It’s nice and he’s a good man. Every manager has his own style and tactics and he worked hard this week to make sure we put them under pressure. He speaks with everybody and what is good is he gives people confidence. He wants us to go 100% and that positivity, enthusiasm and ambition is a positive for every individual.”
Klopp’s first match ended with a share of spoils against a good Tottenham side. The German will make his Anfield managerial debut tomorrow night vs Rubin Kazan.
