Dietmar Hamann has urged Liverpool to follow Tottenham’s sparkling example of how to run a Premier League club.

Spurs have earned plenty of praise for the impressive progress they have made in recent seasons under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The Lilywhites challenged Leicester City for the title for much of last season before ending up third in the table.

The north London side have continued their fine form in recent weeks and are currently second in the table as they prepare for their trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Saturday night.

And former Liverpool midfielder Hamann feels that there are plenty of lessons for the Reds to learn from Spurs ahead of this weekend’s showdown at Anfield.

Writing in his blog for Paddy Power, Hamann said: “Liverpool should be more like Tottenham, who they play on Saturday at Anfield. Spurs have got their problems in the background too, but they are a united team.

“They’ve a manager firmly in control who decides what he wants to do and there’s no distractions for Mauricio Pochettino.

“Tottenham’s wage bill and the amount they’ve spent is quite a way behind some of the top teams – however they left most of their rivals in the dust last season and they are starting to do it again this campaign.

“Jurgen Klopp can mirror the excellent job Pochettino has done but there are some structures within Liverpool where people are convinced that the club is bigger than it actually is.”

Liverpool head into Saturday’s game in fifth place in the table and 13 points behind leaders Chelsea after a miserable start to the new year.
