Liverpool Fan Claims Jurgen Klopp Is Better Than Sir Alex Ferguson

A Liverpool fan has claimed that Jurgen Klopp is a better manager than Sir Alex Ferguson was, after taking Liverpool to a third Champions League final in five years.

Klopp made sure Liverpool would be heading to Paris at the end of the month, by defeating Villarreal on Tuesday night, in slightly more dramatic circumstances than he'd have initially expected.

Having lost the final in 2018 to Real Madrid and then defeated Tottenham Hotspur a year later, it will be the third time the Reds' have made it to the final under Klopp's management.

The German also has a final appearance back in 2013 to his name, when his Borussia Dortmund side lost to Bayern Munich, but a win in this year's final, against Real, could mean the greatest achievement of any manager in a long time.

That's because Liverpool could still win an incredible quadruple, which would need to be finished off in the French capital if they win the FA Cup and Premier League between now and then.

Even before that achievement has been completed, one Liverpool fan has claimed the former Dortmund bass in now better than Sir Alex Ferguson.

With the title chasers having already won the Carabao Cup, winning all three of the remaining trophies would leave them with an unprecedented quadruple.

It's difficult enough to win three trophies in a season, with Liverpool managing it in 2001 with the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup, and City have done the domestic treble.

Only Fergie has captured the league, FA Cup and Champions League all in one season, when his Manchester United team won the treble in 1999.

The fact Klopp could out do that would be a hell of an achievement, but it might still be a bit of a stretch to suggest he's better than the Scotsman.

Ferguson won 13 Premier League titles in his time at Old Trafford, transforming a team that hadn't won the league since 1967, finally winning the first Premier League in 1993.

He twice won the title three times in-a-row, something that's not even been done once by anyone else in the past 29 years in England's top tier.

As well as the Treble, there were also four double seasons, involving the league, coupled with either Champions League, FA Cup or League Cup.

The two managers also had incredible careers before moving to England, with Klopp managing to end Bayern Munich's monopoly of the Bundesliga, to win the German title twice.

Fergie ended the Scottish duopoly between Celtic and Rangers and won three league titles with Aberdeen, there was also four successes in the Scottish Cup and most impressively, beating Real Madrid to win the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1983.
