Diego Maradona has revealed that he is a huge fan of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The German coach has earned plenty of praise for his impact since taking over at Liverpool 12 months ago.

The Reds have started the new season strongly and are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table heading into their crunch clash with Manchester United at Anfield on Monday night.

Klopp is known for his charismatic approach and has managed to get his Liverpool side playing free-flowing, attacking football.

And Argentina legend Maradona has explained just why he is such a keen admirer of the man in charge at Anfield.

Speaking in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca, Maradona said: “Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool coach, I love what he transmits as a manger.

“I liked him before with Borussia Dortmund and now in the Premier League – Klopp is always going forward.”

Liverpool return to Premier League action with a crunch clash with Manchester United on Monday night as they look to follow up their 2-1 win at Swansea City before the international break.
