Simon Jordan explains why Jurgen Klopp is the best manager in the world, not Pep Guardiola

Simon Jordan explains why Jurgen Klopp is the best manager in the world, not Pep Guardiola

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have been fighting at the top of the Premier League in recent years

Simon Jordan has explained why Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is the best manager in the world.

Over the years, the title of best manager in world football has often been given to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

The Spaniard led the Blues to a historic treble last season when they clinched the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

Despite a tough start to the current campaign, City remain the heavy favourite to seal what would be their fifth Premier League title in six years.

However, former Crystal Palace chairman Jordan believes Klopp is better.

Explaining on talkSPORT, he said: “They’ve [Liverpool] got a manager that to me, I think, is the best manager, if not close to it in world football. I know that the statistics will tell you that it’s Pep.” Guardiola is.

“Well if he had the same resources as Pep I think he might have achieved the same things.”

Jordan continued: “The argument will be, ‘what style of football do you like to watch?’ I like to watch Liverpool’s style of football more than I like to watch Manchester City’s.

“I just like a more dynamic style of football rather than this overwhelming destruction of other sides by passing them to an almost near standstill. The nature of Manchester City’s football whilst beautiful on the eye, isn’t quite as exciting as the dynamic explosion Liverpool often produce and that’s just a personal choice.


“I think Klopp is a brilliant manager. He’s now back in the groove and back in most press conferences saying things that are sensible and not constantly indulging himself in what they do and don’t have and how unfortunate it is for them. I think he’s an outstanding manager.”

Last season, the Liverpool manager's future was questioned after a disappointing campaign resulted in a fifth-place finish in the Premier League.

However, Klopp has rejuvenated his squad for the 23/24 season as the Anfield club currently sit top of the Premier League table, three points ahead of second-placed Aston Villa.
