People keep asking Klopp if Salah might be the best player in the world, but might the German be the best manager? Is there anything he can’t do? Well, yes – the thing he has historically struggled to do is convince his best players to turn down the richer clubs who are trying to sign them. Will he have a chance to work on this skill again this summer?
clearly sadio mane’s miss didn’t allow mo salah to do anything, i think what i was trying to get at last night was that even the moments that don’t count… do https://t.co/OvXnK0v40y

Simon Hughes of The Independent joins us to try to make sense of what we saw.
Jürgen Klopp’s ability to transmit his beliefs and inspire hope draws comparisons with the manager that first led Liverpool out of darkness and into light. Klopp is a creator of shared stories and that is what football should be about. Here’s another one. https://t.co/FevqI0ILjk

Plus there’s confidence in sport, Fowler’s boots, defending Lovren, Macari’s chipper, and the return of Ken’s Champions League Weekly voice.
That is unreal.
And people question the effect of confidence in sport??
