Klopp Robertson TEAMtalk

Andy Robertson says his Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is “even more Klopp” when he drinks and parties.

Klopp is known for his touchline antics, passion and entertaining post-match interviews and Robertson has revealed what the German is like to party with away from the public eye.

Speaking to the That Peter Crouch Podcast about drinking with Klopp, Robertson said: “He’s probably even more Klopp. He says, ‘anything you do, you do 100% – you play 100%, you train 100%, you party 100%. When he parties, he parties Klopp x3 or x4.

“What you see is what you get with him.”

Robertson has recalled his first meeting with Klopp when the Liverpool boss labelled him ‘Mr Sick Boy’.

“I remember on my first day we had to do the Lactate Test – basically running to your maximum,” Robertson added.




“I remember running alongside Danny Ings and I was just physically sick everywhere. Day one.

“Luckily the gaffer wasn’t there, so I thought I’d got away with it.

“They returned, he introduced himself and he called me ‘Mr. Sick Boy’ or something like that.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool will wait for the conclusion of the Bundesliga season before making a move for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner after an interesting clause came to light.

Werner, who has scored 27 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions this term, is understood to be of interest to Liverpool and has been for a sometime, however Jurgen Klopp is in no rush to secure a deal.

That is because Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy report that Werner’s buyout clause will drop from £52m (€60m) to £44m (€50m) if RB Leipzig fail to win the Bundesliga title this season.
