Robert Lewandowski has poured praise on Liverpool’s appointment of “perfect fit” Jurgen Klopp and says they are the “optimal club” for the German.
Klopp has had quite the impact on Liverpool after signing a three-year contract to replace Brendan Rodgers as boss last week, despite being yet to manage a game for the Reds – and we analysed the effect he could have on the club in this article on Thursday.
But Lewandowski, who enjoyed an excellent relationship with the manager during their trophy-laden time together at Borussia Dortmund, has joined those in hailing the bespectacled boss, saying he will be a “perfect” fit for the Premier League.
“Kloppo fits perfectly with the Premier League,” the Bayern Munich striker told Goal. “At Liverpool he can make a difference with his positive thinking and sweep the players along with him.
“They will play really well and they will win. I can only wish him the best of luck. I know the team are not playing that well, but Kloppo definitely has an idea of what he wants to do. This is the optimal club for him – and league also!”
How will Liverpool do under Jurgen Klopp this season?
Lewandowski’s comments come after the striker was linked with a shock move to the Reds earlier this week and will undoubtedly fuel tabloid rumours that he could be a target for the new Liverpool boss.
Lewandowski continued to pour praise on his former manager, adding: “He’s a great guy, a great coach.
“He knows that the Premier League and Bundesliga are not the same. He will do things differently and find a new approach than at BVB because it is a different league and he has new players.
“I heard that he put on a show at the press conference – this is Klopp. He has fun and is a great coach, a great guy. I can only wish him the best of luck.”
