Liverpool Fans Want A Statue Of Jurgen Klopp Outside Anfield If They Win The Premier League
Liverpool fans want a statue of Jurgen Klopp outside Anfield if he can guide his side to their first ever Premier League title.
Liverpool are 14 points clear at the top of the league after winning the coveted Champions League for a sixth time last season.
Klopp has worked wonders at Anfield since being appointed in 2015, winning the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
He's now on the verge of steering Liverpool to their first ever Premier League title and fans want the club to build a statue in his honour if he can successfully bag their first title.
Twitter user @ScouserChrisLFC posed the question: "Do you think Jurgen Klopp deserves a statue outside Anfield if we win the Premier League?"

Here's how fans reacted to his question regarding a statue of Klopp.
"Yes with little statues of Rafa, Houllier, Rodgers and Hodgson all looking up at him adoringly," one social media user wrote.
A second tweeted: "Should be one for all UCL winner coaches."
A third added: "A statue, a shrine, an all singing all dancing band 24/7 dedicated to him. Whatever he wants."
Another wrote: "Defo deserves some shrine similar to the likes of shankley statue and the paisley gates."

The fact that we have broken the record of most points in 21 games (61 points) absolutely stuns me. Klopp has built this team from the ground up and has transformed nearly every player to be world class. Build the man a statue.

Former Red Peter Crouch has urged his former team to build a statue of Klopp if they can defend the Champions League and win the Premier League.
"Klopp was every bit the lively and engaging figure you see on your screens and the way he has taken Liverpool forward over the last four years is remarkable," he said.
"He clearly loves life at the club, as he extended his contract on Friday until 2024.
"If they were to defend the Champions League - and if they go on to win the Premier League - they should build a statue of Klopp, never mind a new training ground. To achieve something like that in the modern era would be incredible. It would put him on par with any of the club's greats."
Liverpool have immortalised two former greats into statues in the shape of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley.
Will Klopp join them? Let us know what you think.
