Lallana reveals what Klopp is like when he is angry

The English midfielder is yet to make an appearances for Liverpool this season.

Adam Lallana has revealed how Jürgen Klopp reacts when he is furious and also reflected on what it is like to work under the German. The England international picked up a thigh injury against Atletico Madrid during the pre-season Audi Cup and even though he is back to full training at Melwood, he is not sure when he will return to action on the pitch.

The 29-year-old shared what Klopp is like when he is angry, according to Klopp’s biography –  Raphael Hoginstein’s Bring the Noise as quoted by Daily Mail.

“A lot of the time, mainly when he’s angry, Klopp says: ‘I f****** wish I could speak German to you,” Lallana says in ‘Bring the Noise: The Jürgen Klopp story.” Lallana stated.

Even though the Reds boss might want to just speak German at times, he has no issues with the language as Liverpool’s number 10 even added that Klopp’s English is tremendous.

“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******ing, 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.”

Reflecting further on working under Klopp, Adam Lallana added.

“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.”
