Adam Lallana: This is what Jurgen Klopp is like at Liverpool
Adam Lallana heaps praise on Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, calling him a 'genius'
Adam Lallana has lifted the lid on what it’s like to play under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool this season.
The German coach has earned plenty of praise for the impact he has had at the Merseyside club since his appointment as the Reds’ new manager back in October 2015.
Klopp is known for his animated and passionate demeanour on the touchline during games, but Lallana says that the former Borussia Dortmund manager is much quieter and “normal” during the week.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Bournemouth on Saturday, Reds midfielder Lallana said: “He has a game-day emotion.
“During the week in training, he is happy, smiley and a normal guy.
“On game day, he’s animated and acts like a player. He’s a genius.”
Liverpool have made a strong start to the new season and are being tipped to challenge for the top flight title this season due to their lack of European football.
The Reds finished in eighth place and without a trophy despite reaching the League Cup and Europa League finals under Klopp last season.
