Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has revealed how Jurgen Klopp reacts when he is angry and further explained what is it like to work with the German.
Lallana is yet to make an appearance for Liverpool this season since picking up a thigh injury against Atletico Madrid during the pre-season preparation and although he is now back in full training at Melwood and is close to being considered for a first-team return, it is still unsure as to when exactly will he return.
The 29-year-old was discussing how Klopp manages to inspire his players and as quoted in Raphael Hoginstein’s Bring the Noise: The Jurgen Klopp story, being serialised in the Daily Mail, Lallana revealed,
“A lot of the time, mainly when he’s angry, Klopp says: ‘I f****** wish I could speak German to you,” Lallana says in ‘Bring the Noise: The Jurgen Klopp story’.
Lallana also explained that Klopp is perfectly fluent in English, however, it indeed frustrates him at times.
“His English is tremendous, actually. I understand whatever he needs and wants to say. But it does frustrate him at times… He can give you a b******ing, he can really praise you. The hugs, they are really genuine as well.
“He will tell you when he is happy with you. He will tell you when he is not happy with you. He is just genuine, straight‑ up.”
Jurgen Klopp is known for his passion, his enthusiasm; be it on the field or off it. He knows how to express himself and speaking about the same, Lallana further quoted how straightforward the 50-year-old is.
“He can’t hide his emotions, can he? If he wants to say something he will end up saying it. He says he can be your friend, but not your best friend because he has to have those difficult conversations with you at times. He would sometimes get frustrated, telling us that we don’t believe how good we are.”
With the season approaching its business end now, Klopp will want all of his senior players back in action. Liverpool next face Southampton at Anfield followed by a trip to Spain to face Sevilla in the Champions League. The fixture congestion has unfortunately coincided with Sadio Mane’s hamstring injury.
Mane is scheduled to travel back to England after helping Senegal qualify for their first World Cup finals in 16 years and it has already started worrying Klopp.
“It is a concern that the hamstring injury is again on the agenda and it will be critical for us to monitor and manage that in the coming days,” Klopp was quoted by the Guardian.
Let’s hope our injury concerns don’t affect the performances on the pitch.
Liverpool in the race with Man United to sign 20-year-old promising Championship defender
The 20-year-old Englishman is predominantly a left-back but is comfortable when switched to operate as a centre-back.
Kelly has 18 Championship appearances for City this season and has even scored a goal. The Championship side lie 13th in the league as they try to push up for a playoff spot.
The report adds that Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the England U21 international. The youngster, who seems to be a player for the future, has also trained with the England senior squad under Gareth Southgate.
The report claims that we are looking to sign him in the winter window, but face competition from the trio of Premier League clubs.
The Reds have done well with some of their young players in recent years and Kelly could be one for the coming years. He could make a story similar to Joe Gomez at Anfield.
The latter joined us on the cheap from Charlton Athletic a few years ago and even made his senior debut as the left-back. However, he has now shifted to central defence and has been impressive for the Reds under Jurgen Klopp.
Gomez is out for a few weeks due to injury and hopefully, he comes back stronger as we look to continue our fantastic start to the season.
“We want to be as successful as possible” – Jurgen Klopp praises players after record-breaking start to the season
Jurgen Klopp has hailed the Liverpool players for their record-breaking start to the season. The Liverpool Echo reports that our tally of 42 points from 16 games is the best during this stage of a top-flight season.
We achieved that landmark with a 4-0 demolition job of Bournemouth on Saturday and moved to the top of the Premier League table after Chelsea’s win over Manchester City.
Klopp further gave all the credit for the feat to the players (h/t Liverpool Echo):
“I think I said a few years ago that we have to write our own history.
“It’s important but it’s not the most important thing in the world that we beat any team’s record from 30 years ago or whatever.
“The thing is that we want to be as successful as possible. Nobody knows what that means. This league is so difficult to play.”
The manager even had time to joke about the points tally we have achieved so far this season.
“To have 42 points, I usually had that in April, and now it’s December. That’s massive. It’s exceptional, and the boys deserve all the credit for that because they fight for each yard.”
Liverpool looked great in the win over the Cherries but it felt like we had more in the tank. There are a couple of tough matches coming up for the Reds as we face Napoli in the Champions League and Manchester United at the weekend.
We have to beat the Italians to make it to the next round of the European competition, and the pressure will be on to put Carlo Ancelotti’s men to the sword.
Klopp will already be planning the downfall of the Serie A side, and if we play to our potential, there could be a fantastic match at Anfield in midweek.
“It’s time for a change right now” – Former USA international urges Liverpool target to leave Bundesliga giants
Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has been told that it is time for a change, with the January window around the corner.
The Liverpool Echo adds that the Reds have kept tabs on the 20-year-old and Chelsea are also interested in signing the winger.
Former United States international Alexi Lalas believes it is time for the winger to leave Dortmund for bigger things in the future.
“There are teams all over the world that would love to have Christian Pulisic right now. I think he’s done a great job in going over to Germany, he’s done a great job at Borussia Dortmund.
“But I think it’s time for a change right now for Christian Pulisic, and a change to an even higher profile team.”
The report adds that the American is out of contract in 2020 and should he refuse to extend his stay at Dortmund, the club could sell him in the coming window.
Liverpool could do with someone like Pulisic in their side, and he would certainly do well under his former boss Klopp.
The American is one of the bright players in the Bundesliga but hasn’t been great in the current campaign for Borussia Dortmund.
The youngster has been upstaged by Jadon Sancho, who is playing better than him at the moment.
