Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has named Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as his favourite former manager over Pep Guardiola.

The Polish international 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 goalscorer 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.”
