Nathaniel Clyne has been talking about our boss, Jurgen Klopp.
In an extensive interview with Goal.com (cited on official site), he says fitness is key to the way we set ourselves up.
“With the way he wants to play, he wants us to press, press and counter-press. We need to be really fit and we worked really hard in pre-season and training to get us to where we want to be,” he admitted.
He was also full of praise for Klopp’s infectious touchline demeanour:
“Everyone wants to do well for their manager because he gets involved. He basically wants to be on the pitch and you can see that from the goal celebrations when he runs up and down the touchline. If you see a manager do that, it makes you put in even more effort on the pitch.”
Klopp has been so entertaining on the touchline that he was also a subject of a “Klopp-cam” when we played Dortmund last season, but the idea was eventually shelved.
