Jurgen Klopp: I Would Quit If Liverpool Put Out A Video Of My Team-Talk
Jurgen Klopp has responded to Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch's passionate team-talk video by saying he would quit if Liverpool put him in that position.
The Austrian club uploaded a video of the Marsch's fiery half-time team-talk from the Champions League clash on Wednesday night to their You Tube channel.
An emotional Marsch told his players to target Virgil van Dijk and "f**king raise our fight" in the Anfield away dressing room.
To be fair to Marsch, his words worked wonders as Salzburg produced a stunning fightback to peg Liverpool back to 3-3, only for Mo Salah to score a late winner.
But Klopp was having none of it, and said he wouldn't be happy if his club uploaded a video of his team-talk.
