"The manager in Klopp will make sure he [Jota] understands so there isn't any stupidness that happens behind the scenes. Klopp will let the player know that if he is doing well then he'll keep him in there." Added Ferdinand.  

"However, when it comes to Nunez, this is my guy and he will go straight into the starting eleven on match days. In this day and age when we talk about managers we get caught up in tactical part of it.

"The best managers are actual managers. They manage people and that is why they are considered the best."
