The Anfield Wrap are in the United States, covering Liverpool’s pre-season tour and doing live shows, and we were lucky enough to get time to speak to the Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, prior to the match in New Jersey against Manchester City.

We discussed with him how his approach has shifted in English football, about how English football differs from the rest of the world, and how crazy the early start of the season is. We get stuck into the impact he feels he has had upon the club and the bonds that build at Melwood. He talks about the importance of positivity around the club and how that impacts the performances we see on the pitch.

We chat about his process, about how he deals with the football media in the United Kingdom and about how different cultures come together off the pitch.

He talks at length about how his leadership works and the sort of dressing rooms he enjoys. He remembers Burnley away last season as we look ahead to next season.

Neil Atkinson hosts with Gareth Roberts and John Gibbons. But the focus is the Boss. Who is boss throughout.

Here is a taster of the first three minutes
