James Milner says he is hoping to learn under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The England international has been ever-present in Klopp’s side since the 48-year-old former Borussia Dortmund manager took over the reins at Anfield.

I’ve been fortunate to work under some great managers and he [Klopp] is another one of the top managers in the game

Liverpool have lost just one of their opening seven games under the charismatic German manager, including a 3-1 win against defending champions Chelsea.

Milner, who moved to Liverpool in a free transfer in the summer, believes he is fortunate to work under a top manager like Klopp.

“You can always learn whether you are 16 or 17, or whether you are 35 or 29,” Milner told Liverpool’s website.

“That’s football and the manager will still be learning himself. Obviously he has come in with his new ideas, new training methods and things like that, so it’s great for me as much as it is the younger guys.

“Hopefully I can help those younger guys, but I’m still learning myself. Changing managers is always different and I’m still learning the way he wants to play.

“I’ve been fortunate to work under some great managers and he [Klopp] is another one of the top managers in the game. I can learn as much as I can and hopefully put that back into my game, as a team [member] and as an individual and improve.”

Liverpool suffered a surprise 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace in their last Premier League outing – their first defeat under Klopp.

The Reds make the daunting trip to Premier League leaders Manchester City in their next fixture at Etihad Stadium on 21 November.
