EPL: One thing you never knew about Jurgen Klopp

Before this revelation, no one knew that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is on social media as there is no account that claims his name or his post.

Almost all players are known to have a social media account, including Twitter and Instagram but just a few of the coaches fancy having one.

The reason might be connected to the nature of their work as they are always busy with preparation for games and may not be able to spend time on social media for fun.

However, Liverpool boss, in an interview with talkSports reveals that he is on social media but uses a secret name to be able to monitor what is going on online.

He added that his Instagram account does not reveal his name or his profile and it is intended to ensure that he doesn’t get distracted from his job.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp is not the only manager who is off social media and they all have their various reasons for making such decisions but most of them do not have the time to engage in it, hence see no need for it.

The Liverpool boss is one manager that has always complained about the rigour of the Premier League and has advocated for rest or space between games.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss also voted in favour of five substitutes for this season so as to help the players from unnecessary fatigue that could lead to injuries.

The traditional three substitutes were increased to five after the recall of football from the coronavirus break and the 20 topflight teams were asked to vote whether to continue with the increased rule or return to normal.

Despite losing in the vote cast, Jurgen Klopp argues that the current season is short of four weeks from other seasons and it is more reason why five substitutions should be put in place to help the players.
