Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp turns 49 today, and if the way he has conducted himself in the Reds dugout since his appointment in October is anything to go by, it is probably not going to be a quiet birthday celebration for the German.

A man known for his humour and charm off the field, as well as that booming laugh of his whenever he carries out his media duties, Klopp is probably more well known for how he is on the touchline. 

He is not a man who is afraid of having saying his piece to the opposition manager - as he can sometimes get under the skin of some of his opponents - nor does he hide his frustration with his players at times when he feels they should be doing better. 

There is certainly room for that at the Reds as they finished in eighth place in the Premier League last season, and he will be hoping his side can get over that crucial final hurdle in cup competitions having missed out in the final of the League Cup to Manchester City and in the Europa League to Sevilla.

Klopp is also not averse to showing the more fun side of his personality, while showing public displays of affection towards his players he is something he likes to do - especially after positive performances.

Here are seven pictures that sum up Klopp's extroverted personality during his time on Merseyside so far:
