Liverpool fans react to Neil Warnock’s praise for Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp has done a monumental job at Anfield since taking over in October 2015.

When the 52-year-old moved to Merseyside following Brendan Rodgers’ sacking, the Reds were in 10th place in the table, and they only finished two places above that at the of the season.

However, the north-west outfit have been on the rise ever since then. They have qualified for the Champions League in each full campaign the former Borussia Dortmund manager has spent at the club, and they have been to two finals as well. They even won the competition last term, beating Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid.

This season, they have arguably got even better. They top the Premier League with 61 points from 21 matches – that is the most any team has picked up at this stage of the season in the history of Europe’s top five leagues. Truly astonishing stuff.

Such has been Klopp’s impact on this side, former Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock believes that he is the third best manager in Premier League history, ahead of the likes of Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson.

That is some rather huge praise, and even the Liverpool fans don’t agree. Many have questioned how he can put him above former Manchester United boss Ferguson.

It is a truly astonishing claim from the 71-year-old. Don’t forget, the Scot won 13 Premier League titles during his 27 year reign as United manager. Klopp is yet to win even one.

Even Mourinho’s position has been questioned.

Again, the Portuguese manager is one of the most successful managers of the Premier League era with three titles. Surely Klopp has to much such records to be mentioned amongst such company?
