Jürgen Klopp loves a hug in moments of happiness or sadness. When Shinji Kagawa was leaving Borussia Dortmund for Manchester United, the hug outlasted any of Banzai's Mr. Shake-Hands Man's efforts.

"We cried for 20 minutes, in each others' arms, when he left," Klopp revealed this week.

Sir Alex Ferguson was worried Robin van Persie would "kill" him when he gave him a bear hug last month. "He forgets I'm 71!" he joked. Klopp meanwhile, at 45, is in fine fettle and rarely goes a game without a hug.
