Speaking on The Overlap, Steven Gerrard has been waxing-lyrical about Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
The ex-Reds captain never actually played under Klopp, but he worked alongside him at Liverpool when he took charge of one of the academy teams, and he doesn’t have enough good things to say about him.
Gerrard says that Klopp is one of the nicest and most genuine people he knows, and he says Liverpool fans should enjoy having him at the club because he’s a one in a million manager.
WHAT’S BEEN SAID?
Gerrard spoke about Klopp.
“Every time I’ve met Jurgen Klopp, I’ve seen him walking his dog, and it’s always open arms and it’s real. I know I’m in the same league and competing, I have to be careful what I say, but Liverpool fans should enjoy Jurgen Klopp because he’s going to be one in a million, he’s that good,” Gerrard said.
ONE OF THE GREATEST
Gerrard is absolutely right, Liverpool fans should enjoy Jurgen Klopp, because once he’s gone, he’ll almost be impossible to replace.
Not only is the German one of the greatest tacticians of the modern era, his personality suits what Liverpool Football Club stands for too a tee.
He’s emotional, genuine and fair all at the same time, and he’s never scared to make his opinions heard.
Gerrard may well be the man that eventually replaces Klopp, but he will have massive shoes to fill if he ends up taking that job.
