One of the reasons Liverpool have been so successful under Jürgen Klopp is the squad unity that the German has instilled in the side. The Reds boss has created a team that would die for each other on the pitch, with every member of the side busting a gut to help the team effort. This unity is a necessity for the football that Klopp wants to play, the Reds have become notorious for their aggressive high press, Liverpool players swarm around the opposition when they are in possession. Other teams have tried to adopt this approach but nobody has perfected it the same way that Jürgen has, this perfection is down to a deep understanding and bond between the players, with each knowing when they are meant to help out their teammate.
Sadio Mane has provided a heartwarming example of the bond in the Liverpool dressing room with an Instagram story he posted. In the video on Mane’s Instagram, he says that Gini Wijnaldum has gifted him a brand new iPhone 11, the smiley Senegalese winger goes on to give his earnest thanks to his Dutch teammate. You can watch the video below.
Look at Mane’s reaction after given a free iPhone 11 by Gini. So humble. 😂pic.twitter.com/JHmn9nlz4R

This Liverpool fan thinks that the Reds squad is full of wonderful personalities.
Hard to pick who’s the nicest guy in the team. Guess Klopp only gets inherently good people onboard.

One supporter pointed out how lucky we are to have such good influences in the dressing room.
What a good guy. We’re so blessed to have him

Of course, in the scale of things, it didn’t cost Wijnaldum much at all did it? But it’s lovely to see, as this Red pointed out.
thats worth nuin to them but its thought that counts
