Man United legend, Sir Alex Ferguson, has hailed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for turning United’s rivals into serious title contenders this season.
The former Old Trafford boss, who won 38 trophies with the Red Devils, has been impressed by the way in which the former Borussia Dortmund manager has turned the club around.
Speaking to Kicker, the Scot said:
“He has done a really good job and revived Liverpool’s enthusiasm,
“It can happen that big clubs lose it. For two decades, Liverpool changed managers without building their own identity.
“You can now well and truly sense that you have to count them in this year. You can see Klopp’s dedication on the sideline – I’m convinced his work in training is similar.
“He’s a strong personality. That’s absolutely vital at a big club.”
The German boss has taken his Reds side to level points with leaders Man City after nine games this season, his first full campaign at Anfield.
The red half of Merseyside will look to make top spot their own this weekend as they travel to Selhurst Park to face Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace, hoping results elsewhere go their way.
