Jurgen Klopp isn’t just a pure of emotional energy on Liverpool’s sideline for no reason, Reds.
Although there’s a large part of him that can’t help him – he’s actually trying to inspire the same kind of fight and mentality in his players.
“There are two reasons why I am so energetic on the sideline. One is my character, I’m already much calmer than I used to be to be honest,” he told the official website.
“I’m kind of the reserve tank for the boys. If the energy levels go down, I’m still there for the boys. It’s better to be angry with me than think ‘it’s too intense today’.
“You need a response, I needed it as a player as well.”
It cannot be argued that it works.
Liverpool scored more goals after 80 minutes than any other side in the Premier League this season just gone – and late efforts have become iconic of the German’s reign.
Only a few weeks back, Klopp inspired not only Liverpool’s players, but also our fans to a 4-0 victory over Barcelona which secured a spot in the Champions League Final.
In the buildup, Klopp refused to have a defeatist attitude and claimed that if we were to exit the tournament, it would only be in the most beautiful way possible.
It turned out that we did put in our most epically beautiful performance of his reign – but emerged as winners!
Now, we have to the same in Madrid in eight days’ time.
