Jurgen Klopp backed to become Liverpool legend

By | February 8, 2019

Liverpool head-coach Jurgen Klopp will become the club egend if he delivers Premier League title at Anfield according to former Reds star Markus Babbel.

The Reds lost their position on top of the Premier League table on Wednesday after Manchester City have won the game against Everton although the Reds are only behind on goal difference and have a game behind.

If the Merseyside Reds can win the title this campaign it will end a run of 29 years without a Premier League trophy, and the ex-Reds centre-back Babbel believes a win for Klopp would see him become a club legend.

Talking to Omnisport, as quoted by FourFourTwo, Babbel said:

“[It is going to be] very close.

“Man City have had their problem this season, now Liverpool are facing issues but it is impossible to be at your best the whole year and this happens in football, but I hope Liverpool can do it.

“Klopp is a fantastic coach. He is challenging one of the best teams in the world and if you want to win the title the pressure will always be there, but he is dealing with it well and is in control of everything.

“He [Klopp] is in the top five of coaches in Liverpool’s history, because they haven’t won for such a long time, it is frustrating for the supporters and they are dreaming for the title and if he can win the league he will go down as one of the best coaches ever in Liverpool’s history.”
