Jurgen Klopp in the eyes of Robert Lewandowski

In addition, according to Lewandowski Jurgen Klopp is also a superior motivator. He knows exactly how to bring out the best potential from his players.
“Also for him is a big motivation. He makes this perfect, because he knows where the line can go further or when to reduce it.”
