Robert Lewandowski says Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is his favourite former manager for his ability to be a father figure and coach.
The Bayern Munich striker won two Bundesliga titles under Klopp at Borussia Dortmund, a German Cup and reached the Champions League final.
Speaking to ESPN on Instagram live, the prolific goal scorer was asked which former coach he most enjoyed working under.
Lewandowski said: "I think Jurgen Klopp (is my favourite) and after that Pep Guardiola. 100 per cent.
"(Klopp) has two faces. You can see that he is kind of like a father, but the second part is like a coach, a manager.
"He can tell you everything, and I'm not speaking about the good things, about the bad things.
"Also, for (players), he is a huge motivation. He makes this perfect, because he knows where there is this line where he can [push you] more or a little bit less.
"His performance as a coach is amazing, but not only as a coach but also as a man."
