Jurgen Klopp makes his feelings about Everton's fans perfectly clear

The Liverpool boss has been discussing the Toffees faithful.

Jurgen Klopp says he gets on with the Everton fans he's met so far in Liverpool, according to the Daily Mirror.

Indeed, the Liverpool head coach says all the Everton supporters he's encountered are friendly and have been 'really nice.'

The German is quoted as saying by the Mirror: "As Dortmund manager, I lived in a street and my two neighbours were Schalke fans. They showed it every day, flying flags!

"I’ve met some Evertonians in the street and they’ve been friendly. I’ve had taxi drivers who have been Everton fans. They’ve been really nice.

"At the beginning I thought ‘OK, maybe they’re happy I’m here because they think that means Liverpool won’t have any success for the next 20 years!’"

Klopp, of course, seems like the kind of character all fans can get along with. The Reds faithful have already taken to the German, while neutral fans also seem to love him.

Could this Liverpool manager actually be one who gets along with Everton supporters?

Ahead of Wednesday night's Merseyside derby, most are predicting that Roberto Martinez will rest his senior Everton players, with one eye on this weekend's FA Cup clash against Manchester United.

Liverpool, meanwhile, could finish as high as fifth (and the top four is still a mathematical possibility), so have plenty to play for, especially as maintaining their form will give them momentum in the Europa League semi-finals.
