Ex-BVB defender Brzenska: Klopp honest with me

FC Viktoria Koln assistant coach Markus Brzenska has paid tribute to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Brzenska played for Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.

He told Goal: "He's outstanding. He has his difficult sides too but the speeches and his training were something completely new.

"We noticed immediately that he is a special coach. He was always honest with me. I was told in advance that they weren't planning to work with me anymore, but I did the pre-season anyway.

"Afterwards he came to me and said that I had played a good pre-season but unfortunately they didn't count on me anymore.

"Dortmund had brought in two new central defenders, Neven Subotic and Felipe Santana. So I knew that I would have no more prospects at the club."
