Jamie Carragher believes Sir Alex Ferguson will be the first to acknowledge Klopp’s managerial excellence if Liverpool win League
Erstwhile Liverpool FC defender Carragher believes Klopp has built rather than bought a disciplined squad just like Sir Alex did. On his Daily Telegraph column, Carragher wrote;
“Jürgen Klopp has moved Liverpool so far ahead because rather than buy a team of superstars, he has made a team of superstars. “
Carragher believes that Klopp’s achievements at Anfield are a huge triumph of coaching and management aided by shrewd recruitment. It was that same strategy Sir Alex employed in building Machester United into a trophy-winning club.
Based on these awesome skills of Klopp, Carragher believes Sir Alex would not hold back in acknowledging Klopp’s brilliance.
Liverpool under Klopp
Barely 5 years into Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool, the boss has truly transformed the club. Already title favorites in the ongoing season, Liverpool’s transformation can only be attributed to the managerial brilliance of Klopp.
Under the German manager, Liverpool FC has shown huge improvement. No longer do we remember the club that played second fiddle to Manchester United for 20 years under Sir Alex.
Twice, Liverpool have reached the Champions League final, losing to Real Madrid in 2018. But recovered by a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in 2019. Above all, Liverpool have appeared in three consecutive European finals since Klopp arrived at Anfield.
Certainly, since becoming Liverpool boss, Klopp has focused even more on improving every member of his squad than on big signings. A strategy is quite similar to the one Sir Alex used to win his first Premier League title at Manchester United.
In short, It goes without saying that Klopp has really turned the tides at Liverpool, and truly deserves every accolade that comes his way.
