in 2018 has won six trophies under Jurgen Klopp including Premier League and Champions League titles.

In an interview with Garry Neville for The Overlap youtube channel, Van Dijk admitted that Klopp sometimes has lost his head in the dressing room

Van Dijk said:

"Plenty of times [he has shouted at me], not in my face because I think screaming in someone's face is a little disrespectful but when somebody needs it, he does it, he shouts a lot."

The 31-year-old Van Dijk who has played in 197 matches and has scored 17 goals for Liverpool also said Klopp got angry at him after a 2-2 draw with Fulham earlier this season.

"What I like, someone does that because they really cares about you or the situation and make sure it improves or get anyone else sharper. I really enjoy that in a certain way and it helps me. When we played Fulham at the start of the season, in the last five minutes I was trying to go more direct and he was shouting me to play a little bit more. I knew he was shouting from the side so I was trying to glance because I knew for a fact he was going to go after me.”

Liverpool will face Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday in Amsterdam. They will qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a draw.
