Jurgen Klopp gave his thoughts on Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

United have been a completely different team since replacing Jose Mourinho with the Norwegian on a temporary basis back in December, with Solskjaer losing only one game since taking charge and guiding the Red Devils back into the Premier League’s top four.

“It must be one of the best records ever, mustn’t it?” Klopp laughed when asked about Solskjaer’s start to life at United.

“I’m really happy for him. It’s not the best news for us but for all Manchester United fans its brilliant.

“They’ve brought in all the things Sir Alex Ferguson stood for with all the new things in football.

“That makes them a threat again. They are really back on track. Good for them.”

“We all needed luck in our managerial careers.

“When I went from Mainz to Dortmund people said I had no international experience. It was true.

“Normally you would not make a move from Norway to Manchester United. That is clear. But he’s shown his qualities.

“He has the quality and the luck in the right moment. Now he’s in charge and there is no doubt he will be the manager next year as well. That is clear.

“Can you imagine if they brought in a new manager? He deserves that 100%”
