Nathaniel Clyne has spoken on Jurgen Klopp’s impact since taking over as Liverpool boss last year.
The England international believes that Klopp has changed the mindset of the players at Anfield and the German tactician is building confidence in the team.
Klopp took time to settle in England and his methods have now started to show results as the Reds now like like serious title contenders.
The Reds sit fourth in the Premier League table and are gearing to take on heated rivals Manchester United on Monday.
Liverpool are on a four-match win run in the English top tier and will look to resume from wherethey left after the international break.
Clyne looks excited and delighted to be working under the former Borussia Dortmund manager as he said, “He is building confidence in the team and helping us believe we can do anything,” said Clyne.
“It’s his man-management. He makes us believe we can win every match. He makes us believe we will work harder than our opponents, play better than our opponents – that’s what he does.
“We all know our jobs and it’s paying off. He has us bouncing. Everyone is enjoying it, everyone is buzzing around the place.”
Clyne also added that it’s not just the game but how the team is putting on a show for the fans which pleases him.
“I often watch our attacking players and think ‘wow’,” he added.
“You have to admire it. [Roberto] Firmino’s touch, [Philippe] Coutinho jinking around, [Sadio] Mane taking on players, [Adam] Lallana doing Cruyff turns.
“It’s good to watch. I see it all the time at the training ground and you think: ‘Wow, we’ve got a really good team here’. The fans love it.
“It’s a comforting feeling to know that if we perform well and give the ball to players in the right areas, we have a good chance of winning.”
