Jurgen Klopp has clearly taken a special shine to Liverpool teenager Jordon Ibe

Jordon Ibe

The German is clearly a big fan of the talented attacker.

Sometimes you can just see it. Sir Bobby Robson with Paul Gascoigne and Jermaine Jenas, Arsene Wenger and Thierry Henry or Sir Alex Ferguson and Ryan Giggs. Sometimes managers and players click and a special bond is formed.

It looks like Liverpool might just have such a bond forming at the club between Jurgen Klopp and Jordan Ibe.

The 2012 signing from Wycombe Wanderers is undoubtedly a massive talent but that is sometimes not enough.

Klopp however has already realised the treatment this 19-year-old needs. He needs to be loved. He needs to feel appreciated. Klopp is giving him that and it is working.

Ibe has looked a breath of fresh air in recent times and he scored the historic match-winner in Kazan last night as Liverpool picked up their first win of the Europa League campaign. It was his first competitive goal for Liverpool.

Klopp got the best out of Mario Gotze, Nuri Sahin and Ilkay Gundogan with similar bonds and it is obvious that Klopp is a huge fan of the teenage attacker.

Liverpool will hope that this relationship continues to blossom and Ibe adds to his goal tallyy in the months to come.
