Trent Alexander-Arnold says manager Jurgen Klopp “will always be special to the club” as Liverpool close in on their first league title in 30 years.
Alexander-Arnold, who has been at the club since he was six, says Klopp has done “everything” for the Reds and what he has changed has been “mind-blowing”.
Liverpool are six points off winning the Premier League title.
“You have to respect the things he does,” the 21-year-old right-back told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“To change the whole club, to change everyone from doubters to believers, to get everybody thinking the same way, believing the same way and having the same dreams…
“He just embodies the whole club. Even without being from the city, the country and being local, he just clicks with the club. He does it with every person – the fans, the staff and the players.”
Alexander-Arnold added that Klopp “develops the people around him” and “makes their dreams come true”.
Last year, Liverpool became European champions for a sixth time following victory over Tottenham in the Champions League final.
It was their second successive final after defeat by Real Madrid in 2018.
They also finished runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League last season, having lost just one game and recording the third-highest points total in the history of the English top flight.
When Klopp took over in October 2015, Liverpool were 10th in the league table.
