Inter Milan midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan talked about the manager of Premier League club Liverpool, Jürgen Klopp, who was his coach when he played for Borussia Dortmund.

“He’s so good. He’s like a psychologist. He believes in you; he gives your conference, freedom. You can feel free. You’d give your life for him. One day during training, he told me, during a session of shots in goal, if you score 7 goals, I’ll give you 50 euro. So I scored five goals by the end of training, so I had to give him 50 euro. I was really upset; it’s never nice to give money out. We were supposed to play against Frankfurt after two days. We won 2-1, I scored both of them. After the match, he came and gave me a hug, so I said to him, give me back my 50 euro. And he did,” Mkhitaryan said in the new episode of the Frog Talks podcast with Andrea Ranocchia.
