Pep Lijnders hailed by Liverpool fans as skills emerge in new Norwich clip

Liverpool fans were blown away as coach Pep Lijnders showed off his skills in new footage from the Norwich win.

The Reds are preparing to take on West Ham as they look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League once again to 25 points.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking to bounce back from a 1-0 Champions League loss to Atletico Madrid.

But they are yet to taste defeat in the league, thanks to goals from their front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Footage has emerged, though, of Lijnders – Klopp’s assistant coach – showing he has his own skills.

In the clip, the squad are warming up on the pitch to face Norwich.

The players are spread out across the half, running their own exercises for the clash at Carrow Road.

Goalkeeper Alisson dives towards a wide ball to punch it out of the penalty box.

And it is heading straight for Lijnders, who is setting up the next exercise in the warm-up.

The German remains cool, though, as he waits for the ball to come down.

And the coach puts his right boot out to take it under control, expertly bringing it down before balancing the ball on his shoulders.

This footage was shared on the club’s official Instagram page on Friday, where it has been viewed more than 2m times.

It was soon republished on Reddit, where the Anfield faithful were blown away.

“If our assistant coach can do that, no wonder we’re good,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “That’s obscene.”

While a third suggested Lijnders should play a more prominent role.

“Sign him up,” they said.

And a fourth added: “Put him in midfielder.”

A fifth even put him above transfer targets, with: “We don’t need [Jadon] Sancho or [Kylian] Mbappe when we have Pep.”

With a sixth simply writing: “What tekkers.”

Another player to be linked with a move to Anfield is Timo Werner.

The German is the top scorer in Bundesliga this season, with 26 goals in 32 appearances.

But the forward has also been warned off a move to Liverpool.
