Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool's superstar, says Steve McManaman

Steve McManaman believes Liverpool lack superstars in their team but have one in charge in the shape of Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have not won a trophy since 2012 when Kenny Dalglish led them to success in the League Cup, a feat that Klopp can match on Sunday when the Reds meet Manchester City at Wembley.

While McManaman is not overly impressed by any one player in the Liverpool team, he believes the man in charge ensures there is no shortage of entertainment.

“If he wins his first Liverpool trophy after only four months at the club people will think he’s a god,” McManaman said.

“There’s only a couple of trophies to be won this year and if he wins this trophy it’s a huge success for Liverpool – even if he finishes 10th in the league. I think Klopp would have enjoyed the entertainment value of our Liverpool team.

“We’re in the entertainment business. You need the superstars. In this Liverpool team no one really jumps out.

“He’s the superstar. He’s not kicking the ball on the field but he’s the one. When you see his reaction, running down the field, jumping in the air, reacting like a fan, it’s great that he’s passionate and animated.”
