Jurgen Klopp was pleased that Sir Alex Ferguson had “positive” things to say about Liverpool during a recent interview and expressed his admiration for the Manchester United legend.
The former Red Devils boss praised Klopp’s work at Anfield and reckons the German has turned them into genuine Premier League title contenders.
When asked about Ferguson’s comments, Klopp was unsure how to answer at first, saying: “Is it allowed for me to say I like Alex Ferguson?”
Klopp: "Is it allowed for me to say I like Alex Ferguson? I met him before I was Liverpool manager. Nice for him to say something positive."

Before adding: “I knew him before and he did what he had to do at Manchester, which automatically isn’t good for Liverpool.
“But it’s better he says something positive than negative about Liverpool.
“I’m sure he didn’t go out of his house and think ‘I’ll say some things about Liverpool’, he was asked a question!”
