Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed his hilarious drunken antics after guiding Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga title.

Die Schwarzgelben won Germany's top division in 2010/11 and again in 2011/12 - with Klopp securing the German Football Manager of the Year in both seasons.

As part of the 'Inside Borussia Dortmund' documentary on Amazon Prime, Klopp revealed how he had celebrated a bit too much when they were crowned the champions of Germany.

"I was really wasted which may have been noticeable in some interviews," he said.

"And I don’t remember much that makes any sense. I do remember one thing.

"I’m not sure if I ever told anyone. I actually woke up on a truck in the garage. All alone.

"I remember that, but I have no idea about the hours before that."

While Klopp partied a little too hard in celebrating their success, he revealed that he wasn't the only member of the Dortmund hierarchy to end up in a similar situation.

"I woke up, climbed out of the truck and found myself in a big factory hall," he continued.

"Then I walked across the yard and saw the silhouette of a man.

"So I whistled because I can whistle quite loudly and I noticed the silhouette slowed down a little.

"So I waited and saw Aki Watzke (Hans-Joachim Watzke, Borussia Dortmund CEO). So Aki and I were the only people on this huge yard."
