Owen Hargreaves: Three reasons I’m impressed with Liverpool FC boss Jurgen Klopp
The Man United legend heaps praise on Jurgen Klopp for how the German coach has improved Liverpool FC
Owen Hargreaves has listed three reasons why he has been impressed with Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp.
The Reds booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday night after a goalless draw with Porto following a 5-0 win in Portugal last month.
Liverpool FC are the leading goal-scorers in the Champions League this term after an impressive return of 34 goals in 10 games in the group stage.
The 18-time English champions are in third place in the top flight following Liverpool FC’s 2-0 win over Newcastle United at Anfield last weekend.
Liverpool FC are two points behind Manchester United ahead of their meeting at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
German goalkeeper Loris Karius has established himself as their first-choice goalkeeper, the Reds boss has also appeared to settle on centre-halves Virgil van Dijk and Dejan Lovren.
Former Manchester United midfielder Hargreaves has been impressed with the improvements that Klopp has made to the Liverpool FC team over the past few months.
“They’re a brilliant attacking team,” Hargreaves told BT Sport. “But I think Jurgen Klopp deserves a lot of credit.
“He’s made some big calls – Loris Karius is one of them. He’s made some big saves in big games. Lovren has a partnership with Van Dijk, they look terrific together.
“The front three are devastating and the team looks virtually unplayable at this time.”
Liverpool FC are looking to secure a place in the Champions League in successive seasons.
The Reds signed Van Dijk in a £75m deal from Premier League rivals Southampton in the January transfer window.
