Bayern Munich attacker Sadio Mane recently described former mentor, Jurgen Klopp, as being a demanding and ‘emotional’ figure.

The German is regarded as one of the best managers in the world today and gained instant fan favourite status upon his arrival at Liverpool in 2015.

Klopp is also known for being a charismatic figure at the club, whether it be on or off the pitch. Mane, who enjoyed six successful years under the former Borussia Dortmund mentor, said that Klopp is a mixture of the old and new generation of coaches.

“Klopp is Klopp. He’s a mix of the old and the new generation,” Mane told DAZN, as per Rousing The Kop.

“He’s got so much experience and his life is all about football, but he’s also demanding. Sometimes, very, very, very, very much so.

“He is very emotional and sometimes shouts. Almost ready to fight.

“(Nagelsmann) is rather calmer. In terms of football, I don’t see any major differences. They like types of players who press high, because their teams are high.

“It’s easier for me because I’ve almost only had German coaches in my career.”
