‘Klopp’s boisterous behaviour not for show’

first_imgJames Milner believes Jurgen Klopp’s exuberant touchline antics are part of an authentic package that helps drive Liverpool forward.The Reds triumphed in the Champions League for their maiden trophy under manager Klopp last season and have won their opening eight Premier League games this term to stir hopes of a first top-flight title since 1990.Routinely challenging for major silverware makes for a significant improvement from where Liverpool were when Klopp took over in October 2015, the club then languishing in 10th.
