Jurgen Klopp has revealed he has a secret Instagram account – and he uses it to keep an eye on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Perrie Edwards.
Unlike some managers, Klopp has no obvious social media presence, and instead only provides updates on his Liverpool team in press conferences and interviews.
But that doesn’t mean to say the German isn’t social media savvy, nor that he isn’t keeping an eye on what his players get up to on Instagram.

Klopp’s Liverpool take on Everton in the Merseyside derby this Saturday looking to bounce back with a win after their 7-2 hammering at the hands of Aston Villa last time out.
Ahead of the clash at Goodison Park, Klopp said: “A week before Aston Villa, we played one of the best games I’ve ever seen as Liverpool manager [Arsenal] then we lost in the cup and then played a really bad game. We are ready [to go again].”
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti added: “Every time I play against Liverpool it is an exciting game. The only thing missing is the fans.”
