Man United legend Gary Neville heaps praise on Liverpool 'phenomenon'

Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has praised Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to the hilt on his podcast this week.

Klopp arrived at Anfield in October 2015 after the Reds fell to 11th in the table and Brendan Rodgers had been dismissed.

Since his appointment, the club have been on an almost constant upward trajectory.

Six different trophies later, including an inaugural Premier League title in 2020 and a triumph in the Champions League in Madrid in 2019, the German is known as one of the world’s greatest coaches.

Neville, despite his affiliation with Liverpool’s bitter rivals Manchester United, waxed lyrical about the manager:

“Jurgen Klopp is an absolute phenomenon, but I think to myself where would Jurgen Klopp go now that you think would be better for him than Liverpool Football Club in the way in which the Premier League is dominating?"


“He has played in Champions League finals, he is competing against the other best managers in the world that are here at the moment."

"So, at the moment, I don’t believe that’s fair, I don’t believe that’s right."

“It looks like he is enjoying his time at Anfield too much to me, he enjoys the football, he enjoys the league."

"I think he enjoys Liverpool fans, and it would be wishful thinking of Manchester United fans to think that Jurgen Klopp was leaving, and I don’t think that’s the case.”

Liverpool fans will certainly not want Klopp to leave anytime soon, especially after he led them to a domestic double last term and another Champions League final, whilst also finishing second in the Premier League.
