Liverpool legend hails ‘truly top-class’ Jurgen Klopp

Terry McDermott heaps praise on Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

Terry McDermott has hailed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp as “truly top-class”.

The 48-year-old German masterminded Liverpool’s emphatic 4-1 victory over Manchester City at The Etihad on Saturday evening.

Liverpool are six points behind fourth-placed Arsenal after their second successive away victory in the Premier League last night.

Former Reds midfielder McDermott, who won five top-flight crowns and three European Cups at Anfield, took to Twitter to reflect on Liverpool’s emphatic victory.

The Reds eased into a seventh-minute lead after Eliaquim Mangala turned Roberto Firmino’s cross past City goalkeeper Joe Hart at The Etihad.

In-form Philippe Coutinho added a second after a brilliant Reds move before Firmino scored his first Premier League goal in the 32nd minute.

While Sergio Aguero did give City a lifeline before half-time, Liverpool centre-half Martin Skrtel sealed three points with a stunning half volley.

Liverpool host Swansea City in their next Premier League fixture at Anfield on Sunday 29 November.
