Liverpool target Christian Pulisic believes Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is the type of manager all players dream of playing for.

The American international moved to Borussia Dortmund when the German was still in charge back in 2015, but didn’t break into the first team at Westfalenstadion until after Klopp’s departure.

However, the Liverpool boss did give the winger he first taste of training with the Dortmund first team during his time at the club, and was obviously suitably impressed by the now-20-year-old as he tried to bring him to Anfield in August 2016 only to see an £11million bid rejected.

The Reds have remained linked with Pulisic ever-since, with reports in recent weeks suggesting he could be allowed to move on in the summer as he enters the final year of his Dortmund contract.

And the winger has lifted the lid on his relationship with Klopp, revealing he is the kind of manager all players love to play for.

"He was there when I first moved to the club,” he told Goal. “I personally didn’t get to know him too well but I’ve heard stories from some of my team-mates who did and they loved playing for him.

"I was obviously playing with the youth teams at Dortmund, but he was the one who gave me my first professional training session, just to give me a taste of it.

"He always accepted me and he was very kind to me, so I will always be thankful for that. I know he’s a great guy, and it’s nice to see him doing so well for Liverpool."
