Krawietz has worked with Klopp everywhere he’s gone from Mainz to Dortmund and now Liverpool.

The pair – along with Bosnian Zeljko Buvac – are using half-time videos to point out exactly what they want from their players.

They even specifically asked for a bigger area to do their talks when the club built the new Main Stand.

And he says the secret to the success is the fierce competition for places in a happy squad.

Krawietz said: “We’ve tried to create an atmosphere among the squad which is always really competitive.

“As a team we know that the only way we can reach anywhere is by working together

“We try to ‘live’ this in our coaching team, to be a good example of how you can all work effectively as a group.

“Six, eight or 10 of us will always see more than just one or two. We can have more ideas if we all work together, discuss and find the best solutions.

“We try to show the players the same too. For them it’s really important.

“It’s an essential attitude because we aren’t playing tennis, we’re not playing an individual sport – we are playing football as a team.”

Liverpool smashed Watford 6-1 on Sunday and Klopp maintained the could were only going to get better.

Krawietz agrees and said: “We’ve had some good results in the first few months but you can always do better.

“If you look at the details after each game you will get ideas about how you can do things in a better way.

“You can imagine how it [the performance] could be perfect and we never tire of trying to improve and be better.

“I think that has to be your approach because as much as you learn, opponents learn about you too. They will adapt and we have to do the same.”
