One of football’s greatest players Diego Maradona says that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is his favourite manager in the modern era because he is a ‘forward thinker’.
Klopp who is into his second year at Anfield has managed to stamp his author in the premier league with his team producing some breath-taking displays that has won Liverpool even more admirers this season.
Argentina legend Maradona is overwhelmed by the attacking philosophy of the German and has closely followed him even at his time in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund where he won the league and took the team to the UEFA Champions League final.
Maradona asked by Marca about the manager that has impressed him most in the modern game, he said: “Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
“I love what he conveys. He’s the type that gives me confidence – before at Borussia Dortmund and now in the Premier League. Klopp is always going forward.”
Liverpool will be in premier league action on Monday night when they entertain bitter rivals Manchester United at Anfield and Maradona will surely be watching the game from wherever he is.
