Liverpool youngster Tyler Morton has recently opened up on his relationship with Jurgen Klopp.

Morton, who is currently on loan in the Championship with Hull City, has enjoyed a strong start to the season.

The 21-year-old has already notched 10 appearances in the league under manager Liam Rosenior, and recently got called up to the England U21 squad this international break.

Speaking to Hull Live, Morton has hailed the impact that Jurgen Klopp has had on his young career so far.

“He’s brilliant, he’s probably taught me everything I know because he brought me into professional football,” Morton began.

“He gave me a taster of it and I couldn’t speak more highly of him as a manager and as a person.”

“He’s given me the step to go out and play football for Blackburn and now for Hull. I really appreciate him.”

“As I said, he’s probably taught me everything. I’m just trying to learn more and pick up little things and make myself a better player.” 

Jurgen Klopp almost decided to keep Morton in the squad for this season, with concerns around thinning midfield options.

However, regular game time was too much of a motivator for both the player and the manager – and the German agreed to the loan deal in the final hours of deadline day.

“It’s hard when it’s the transfer window because you don’t really get to talk too much (to the manager) because a lot of things are going on, especially on transfer deadline day,” the 21-year-old explained.

“He talks to me, he’s really good. He just wants the best for you as a person which is all I can ask for and all any other player can ask for.”

“He just wants the best for yourself, not only as a player but outside of football as well.”

“He was brilliant with me, he told me to go and express myself and show what I’ve got.”

“They’ll (Liverpool) obviously think about me when I come back but I’ve got to think about the now and make myself better.”

“They’ve put a lot of trust into Hull City and hopefully, I can show the reason why I’ve come here.”
