Jurgen Klopp: Enthusiasm applauded by Ferguson

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has praised the impact Jurgen Klopp has had at Liverpool, saying the pair are a ‘perfect fit’.

Ferguson, who in his official role as UEFA’s Europa League final assessor criticised Klopp’s tactics in the final against Sevilla, has been wholesome in his praise of the German’s impact at Anfield.

Ferguson said: “I’ve always thought that playing at Anfield was very difficult because the crowd create an amazing atmosphere that puts a lot of teams, opponents and the referees under pressure a lot.

“We saw evidence of that when 3-1 down against Dortmund they got that second goal and the crowd lifted them and I think it inspires this team.

“They are that kind of football club, Liverpool, that get inspired by their support.”

And he added of Klopp “He’s bought into the fans. And the support have taken to him because he’s shown that enthusiasm on the touchline, with his energy and his personality when he’s jumping out there.

“I think the combination of both suit each other perfectly.”
