Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has always been one of the most entertaining managers in the Premier League.
It’s highly unlikely however that the charismatic German has ever delivered a team-talk quite like the one he gave to the Liverpool side he managed during the #AMatchForCancer game between a Reds selection and a Celtic XI on Saturday.
In the video, which was released by LFCtv on Tuesday, Klopp is addressing the likes of Luis Garcia, Dirk Kuyt and Jamie Redknapp and hilariously suggests that the players can decide when to come off if they aren’t feeling fit enough, joking that he’ll have already known they were too tired to continue five minutes before they did.
"You can decide how long you play, I don't care!" ??

Klopp also pokes fun at Sky Sports analyst Jamie Redknapp insisting that the ex-Liverpool man will play “120 minutes” for his punditry sins.
The video gives a great insight into Klopp’s personality and after he concludes his team-talk he jokes that the finishing round of applause from his players was the “first time that’s ever happened.”
The Liverpool manager even took a playful dig at their opposition Celtic, who had ex-Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov amongst their players.
“You do not have to worry, I saw the team. Stoichkov? How old is he? My age? Older? Come on!”
The match between Liverpool and Celtic XIs – which finished 3-3 – was in aid of the James Milner Foundation, the Celtic FC Foundation and the Stiliyan Petrov Foundation.
