Naby Keita has admitted that he is a keen fan of Jurgen Klopp’s coaching style at Liverpool FC.

The German manager is well known for his charismatic demeanour and he has earned lots of praise for the impact he has had at the Merseyside outfit since his appointment back in 2015.

Klopp regularly hugs his players on the pitch after games if they are victorious, and Keita has admitted hat he has been really enjoying playing for the German manager since his switch to Anfield this summer.

Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC’s website, Keita said: “He gives everyone hugs. I like him.

“He’s someone who, how can I put it, well, he treats everyone the same.

“All the players are equal for him, he’s close to everybody, I see him at training, and even with the guys who aren’t playing at the time, he’s the same with everyone.

“If you get a hug after the game, it means that we’ve won the game and also that you’ve done a good job too I reckon.”

Keita has featured in all four of Liverpool FC’s opening Premier League games so far this season to leave them leading the way at the top of the table.

The Guinea midfielder has been getting used to life at Anfield after having completed his move from RB Leipzig at the start of the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley as they look to try and maintain their 100 per cent start.
