Klopp made headlines last season when he included Gronnemark to his coaching staff midway through the campaign.
The Dane, who holds the world record for the maximum throw-in at 51.33m, had a direct effect on the technique of this club’s full-backs – most notably Joe Gomez.
Liverpool went on to claim the sixth European Cup that year and Gronnemark is not surprised to find that the Reds thriving under Klopp.
“Jurgen is an innovator,” Gronnemark told The Athletic. “He is a leader who claims that he doesn’t understand everything and is willing to listen to folks whenever they have knowledge to select the team forward.
“If you’ve got a leader who wants total control and thinks that he knows best about everything then that will impact your workers.
“Although you are among the best clubs in the world, it does not mean you have to do the identical thing as you did yesterday. You feel as if you’re talking with a fantastic buddy when you fulfill with Jurgen. He listens a lot.
“To let a man into the club who had been pretty much unknown in England and say ‘we need all your knowledge to put it in the training programme’, which shows a lot of trust and fantastic leadership.
“He is very good at getting the most out of people. It is much more egocentric at clubs. There’s a satisfaction among the staff and the players. They all feel part of something special.
“Sometimes I’ll stop and look at the players facing me and think,’Oh, this is insane’. I’m working.
“Originally , I had a contract to the first half of the year then it was extended for the second half and I have one for the complete season.
“I don’t believe many folks are laughing now. I think most people in football seem at it and say,’Okay, there must be something inside’.”
