Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has praised Jurgen Klopp for transforming Liverpool into the force it is today.
Speaking about Mouringo, Merson stated tjatbthe Portuguese didn’t chnage anything on the North London club.
“I’m a great lover of Jurgen Klopp. I could use any team here, but I’m just going to say Rotherham… I think Klopp could go to Rotherham and take them to the Premier League in time. He’s that good. “He gets players in and plays them the right way. They don’t have household names. Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum, Fabinho. People talk about the full-backs, but if those three don’t play, I don’t think it actually works as well for Liverpool.
“I know Pep Guardiola’s record is great, don’t get me wrong, but every player is £80m, £90m in every position. I haven’t seen anybody at Manchester City become much, much better, they were already great players. “You watch them against Tottenham, they were 1-0 up and they still bomb forward, it’s in their make-up, and they can defend. “When you can defend like that, you’re always going to dictate football matches.
“Why are Liverpool not favourites to win the Champions League? They’ve been at two straight finals. Manchester City haven’t even looked like winning it, and they are favourites. “I don’t think Liverpool get the respect they should get; this is the best team in Europe by some distance. “If you want to beat them, you need two or three goals. They don’t go to park the bus. I can only really see Man City beating them. “Where are Tottenham? Well, they’re eighth.
