Huddersfield boss David Wagner praised Jurgen Klopp's world-class tactical ability but believes one of the Liverpool manager's best traits is being the "nectar" which draws everyone in.

Wagner is in Kiev to support his close friend in Saturday's Champions League final against holders Real Madrid.

"He is the nectar. He is exactly the human he seems to be and that is why everyone has such a good, warm relationship with him: backroom staff, players, supporters," Wagner told Press Association Sport.

"He doesn't play a role and he is honest and says what he thinks and I think this is what everyone likes to hear.

"But without world-class tactical ability you are not able to reach so many finals and he is in a Champions League final for the second time with two teams (Dortmund and Liverpool) which before the campaign no-one expected to be in the final.

"Now he has done it a second time and hopefully he will win this final."
