Published on: 15 October 2016

Liverpool full-back Nathaniel Clyne has hailed the impact of boss Jurgen Klopp on the squad this season, suggesting that he has made them believe that anything is possible.

The English international has been a main-stay in Klopp's starting XI since the German coach joined the Merseyside club one year ago, and according to theDaily Mail, Clyne has suggested that a tough pre-season, coupled withKlopp's man-management style, is paying dividends on the pitch.

"He is building confidence in the team and helping us believe we can do anything," said Clyne.

"It's his man-management. He makes us believe we can win every match. He makes us believe we will work harder than our opponents, play better than our opponents ” that's what he does.

"We all know our jobs and it's paying off. He has us bouncing. Everyone is enjoying it, everyone is buzzing around the place.

"We had double sessions [in pre-season]. One in the morning without the football and then one in the afternoon with the football.

Clyne: "I watch our attacking players & think 'Wow' - Firmino's touch, Coutinho jinking, Mané taking on players, Lallana with Cruyff turns."

"Even triple sessions sometimes. Early morning, afternoon and then another at night. It was tough.

"It's a long season and it's only just started. We just need to keep putting in performances and we could have a chance to win the title."

Liverpool are preparing for the visit of Jose Mourinho's Manchester United on Monday night and will lock horns for the first time this season, with the Reds hoping that they can continue their fine form in the league so far.
