Klopp is considered one of the nice managers in terms of personality but he can also be quick-tempered.

Jurgen Klopp has always been known as a nice guy full of passion when managing a team. He is always smiling on the sidelines even when he is full of anger. However, one of the coaches who has the experience of working with the German manager has spoken about the other side of the man who made


 the champions of the Premier League again.

Andreas Beck, fitness coach of

Borussia Dortmund

when Klopp was in charge recalled one occasion when he had a heated argument with Klopp.

Beck told Goal and



“The player felt something muscular at the end of the training session. Kloppo made a connection with my individual warm-up session and he was asking ‘why was the player doing this exercise?’

“He was just letting off steam at that moment. I felt his anger was very unjustified because he only had very general information.

“To put it simply, I did some work with his upper body before the session and he got an injury in his lower body, but I didn’t have a chance to explain it to Kloppo properly. But that might have been unwise anyway!”

Beck also talks about how it is talking with Jurgen Klopp.

“He doesn't pretend and he is what he is,”

Beck said.

“Just as he can be warm and very funny, he can also be quick-tempered.

“He has a very strong opinion and it depends a little on the situation whether and when you discuss with him - that's probably no different as a journalist.

“In a calm setting, however, there was never a problem to address matters worth discussing. Our arguments were heard and accepted.

“On the training ground in Brackel he definitely put me in my place once or twice. In the course of a productive collaboration, there is always friction.”
