Jurgen Klopp has responded to Red Bull Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch’s passionate half-time team talk by declaring he would quit Liverpool if the club released similar footage of his team talk.

The US coach was filmed pleading with his side to fight against the Reds, asking them to “get f****** stuck in” and even to target Virgil van Dijk, as he thrust out an elbow to suggest what they should do against the defender.

Klopp refused to be drawn on the specifics of the video, but he raised a few eyebrows when he insisted he would quit Liverpool if he was ever filmed like that in the Anfield dressing room.

“If LFCTV would put out a video of me in a situation like that, I would leave the club,” he said.
