Robbie Savage says Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp reminds him of his ex-Leicester City manager Martin O'Neill

Robbie Savage says Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reminds him of Martin O'Neill.

Former Premier League footballer Robbie Savage told his Twitter followers that new Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reminds him of none other than Martin O'Neill.

No, not because he believes he could follow his path and manage Aston Villa and Sunderland in the future - but because of his touchline theatrics.

Klopp celebrated wildly at Anfield last night as Nathaniel Clyne converted a rebound to put the Reds 1-0 up in the first half.

Savage worked under Martin O'Neill at Leicester City and knows him well, part of his League Cup winning team in 2000.

O'Neill had an eccentric approach as did Klopp, and his animated expressions and reactions on the touchline often made for compelling viewing.

They also, and in Klopp's case, had the potential to gee up supporters and grab the attention of his players.

Liverpool's stars are all battling to impress the German manager after his arrival, and to see him celebrating wildly will have been confidence boosting for Nathaniel Clyne after netting his goal.
