Steven Gerrard has told Liverpool that they are “very lucky” to have Jurgen Klopp as their manager and revealed that he is a big fan of the German coach.

Klopp was appointed as manager at Anfield back in October following Brendan Rodgers’ sacking by the Merseyside outfit.

The Reds have failed to find consistent winning from since his appointment but have notched up impressive victories against the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea in the Premier League, as well as reaching the League Cup final.

And former Liverpool captain Gerrard, who trained with his old club during the MLS off-season, admits that he is a keen admirer of the ex-Borussia Dortmund boss.

Speaking to CNN, Gerrard said: “I’m a huge fan [of Klopp]. I was a big fan at Dortmund and I think we’re very lucky to have him at Liverpool.

“I struck up a bit of a relationship with him. I’m hoping with my fingers crossed that as a Liverpool fan he can get us trophies and bring us some success.”
