Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he is a keen admirer of Jurgen Klopp and is backing the German to be a big success at Liverpool.

The former Manchester United manager was in the stands as Liverpool secured a dominant 2-0 won over the Red Devils at Anfield in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash on Thursday night.

Klopp has already endeared himself to the Liverpool supporters since he was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at Anfield back in October,

And former United boss Ferguson admitted that he is a big fan of the former Borussia Dortmund coach following his appointment in the autumn.

Ferguson was quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “Strong personality, very strong, very stubborn, determined and his performances, and his career at Dortmund was a stellar rise to the top and I think he’ll do very well.

“I don’t like saying that, being Liverpool, because I’m worried about it but, no, he’ll do well.”

Liverpool have a free weekend before the return clash against United at Anfield next Thursday night.
