Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has revealed just how angry Reds boss Jurgen Klopp can become with his players.
The England star has been a key member of Klopp’s side since he was appointed Anfield chief in October 2015.
Lallana, who is nearing a return to action after being sidelined with a thigh injury all season, discussed his club boss with Raphael Honigstein, who has written a book titled ‘Klopp: Bring the Noise’.
“A lot of the time, mainly when he’s angry, Klopp says: ‘I f***ing wish I could speak German to you,’” said Lallana.
“His English is tremendous, actually. I understand whatever he needs and wants to say. But it does frustrate him at times.
“He can give you a b*ll*cking, he can really praise you. The hugs, they are really genuine as well.
“He will tell you when he is happy with you. He will tell you when he is not happy with you. He is just genuine, straight-up.
“He can’t hide his emotions, can he? If he wants to say something he will end up saying it. He says he can be your friend, but not your best friend, because he has to have those difficult conversations with you at times. He would sometimes get frustrated, telling us that we don’t believe how good we are.”
