Sadio Mane has announced that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is like a father figure to him


Jurgen Klopp is one of the most respectable people in football. The German has had a great stint with Liverpool ever since his arrival. Klopp pulled Liverpool out of their misery and has reached a new high with The Reds. And Sadio Mane thinks his boss’ man-management skills play a key role for his players.



Ahead of Liverpool’s match against Genk, Sadio Mane took time out to heap praise on his manager. The Senagalese claimed that Klopp helps him not only in football but his personal life too.

“We all love him like a father and we fear him like one too,” Mane revealed to France Football.

“He takes up a lot of space in my life, and not just in football. He’s great as a person.

“I trust him blindly, like most of the dressing room, I think.”
