Kevin Keegan believes that Jurgen Klopp is the right manager for Liverpool.

Klopp has found himself under fire at Anfield in recent weeks after his Liverpool side’s recent dip in form.

Liverpool have only won one of their last seven games in all competitions and they were held to a 1-1 draw by Newcastle United last weekend.

The Reds have struggled to keep clean sheets this season and have conceded 12 goals this term in the Premier League – more than any of the sides above them.

However, former Newcastle United manager Keegan has come out in support of Klopp and insists that he is the right man for the job at Anfield.

Keegan is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “I think he’s a great manager. He fits Liverpool, he gets Liverpool.

“I think Klopp is the hand-in-glove type guy. You can understand what he is saying, he doesn’t talk in riddles, he says what he thinks.

“I hope they have patience with him if it doesn’t actually go quite right because he is the right guy.”

Liverpool return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Manchester United at Anfield next weekend.

The Reds are aiming to get back to winning ways and climb their way up the table after a stuttering start to the new campaign for the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool finished fourth in the Premier League table last season to secure a return to the Champions League in what was Klopp’s first full campaign in charge.
