Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp took a break from his job to join Jamie Carragher as an analyst on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football this week - and it seemed just about everyone watching was suitably impressed.

Klopp discussed a variety of topics, ranging from his team's pressing game and defensive frailties at set-pieces, to his playing career and a lack of knowledge about gambling, and viewers thoroughly enjoyed his appearance.

The world of Twitter was in universal agreement that it was impossible not to like the German.

Klopp discussed a variety of topics, ranging from his team's pressing game and defensive frailties at set-pieces, to his playing career and a lack of knowledge about gambling, and viewers thoroughly enjoyed his appearance.

The world of Twitter was in universal agreement that it was impossible not to like the German.






It seemed viewers like his attire, too.


Klopp started by highlighting the problems his team face when defending corners and set-pieces, acknowledging that his side "is not the tallest", and those watching liked his analysis.



He was then shown the latest odds on who will lift the Premier League trophy in May. Manchester City are the clear favourites, with Liverpool currently second.

But Klopp admitted he did not "even know that the numbers mean".

And then the programme moved on to discussion of the success Liverpool have had this season.

"Gegenpressing is the best playmaker, because you can win the ball back in a dangerous position where you are just one pass from a really good chance."

This was where Klopp really came into his own, and Twitter agreed.



The Liverpool manager was realistic about his side's title ambitions, saying: "We have to improve. It's good that we feel optimistic, but we have to improve."

Whether or not he does lead them to success, it seems he will remain a popular man in this country.
