Jurgen Klopp Names The Best Player He's 'Signed' At Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp has put together an incredible squad as Liverpool manager, improving players and signing some very good ones, and he's made a surprise choice for his best 'signing.'
The Liverpool boss has led his side to within two wins of capturing their first title in 30 years, a title they'd have wrapped up by now if it weren't for the current pause in football.
Klopp has spent the last few years building a brilliant side and made some excellent signings, even the ones that have broken world records like Alisson and Virgil van Dijk have been worth every penny.
"It's Trent," the former Borussia Dortmund boss said, "We didn't have to buy him but Pep Lijnders my assistant brought him around and said: 'He played No.6 [role] for me. He played full-back, he played right wing, left wing'.
"Then he came and there was only one problem: Trent was not fit enough.
"But he was a kid so he was not fit enough but we saw immediately, wow, football wise no doubts.

"But [he was] not fit enough so we had to work on that. But then he made steps by himself that were really unbelievable and that was really nice to see.
"Then he made mistakes and didn't give up."
He's gone on to play 125 times already for the Reds and has become an integral part of the way Klopp's side plays, along with fellow full back Andrew Robertson, who could have easily been Klopp's best actual signing considering his £8 million transfer price.
Picking a player he didn't actually sign is a bit of a Klopp out but considering how good the England full back has been we're ready to let him off.
