Jurgen Klopp has threatened to quit Liverpool if any videos emerge of his half-time team-talks.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has launched a scathing response to a Champions League video which emerged this week.

The Reds took on RB Salzburg in the Champions League on Wednesday and the Austrian side were 3-1 down when they got a rocket from their coach Jesse Marsch.

A video was posted on the club’s YouTube channel where Marsch delivers a passionate half-time speech which in turn inspires his team to fight back to 3-3.

Mohammed Salah went on to score the winner but the clip of the Salzburg boss has earned him loads of praise.

However, Klopp is completely against the idea of letting outsiders see what happens inside a changing room.

“If LFCTV had put out a video of me in that situation, I would leave the club," Klopp said.

"That's the truth and that's all I will say about that."

Former New York Red Bulls coach and United States assistant Marsch switches languages in his emotional rant.

He said: “Firstly, how many fouls have we committed? Maybe two?

“It’s not a f*****g friendly, it’s a Champions League match.

"We’ve got to play more physical and get stuck in.

Be more ruthless against Van Dijk, we play with too much respect. Too much respect.

"Are they strong? Yes. But it doesn’t mean that we should be nice to them and don’t tackle them or fight.

"They have to feel us guys, they have to know we’re f*****g here to compete, not just that we’re here to stylistically going to try and play the same way, but we came to f*****g play.

"We’re going to talk about tactics but when we step on to that field with more confidence and will. Now it’s us against them.

"Let’s f*****g raise our will, our fight. We’ve seen that they are strong but we can do better and breathe life into our game.

"Self-confidence, physicality, that’s what it’s all about. They are not so dangerous with set-pieces. Come on, we have more to offer."
