Jurgen Klopp unsure of comparing Liverpool with Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United

Jurgen Klopp believes that the Reds cannot ‘dominate’ for years like Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United. 

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney, however, disagrees with it. 

The Red Devils claimed over 25 major trophies during Ferguson’s 27-year tenure in charge at Old Trafford, including 13 league titles and a pair of Champions League crowns.

It’s just a matter of formality for the Reds who will be lifting their first Premier League trophy. Liverpool need only six points out of the possible 27 to bring the title Merseyside. Klopp has already led this Liverpool squad to two Champions League finals, winning one.

However, despite being on the verge of winning the title so easily this season, the Liverpool boss has doubts about his squad’s performance and consistency in the future. He said

“I don’t think it is possible to dominate anymore, to be honest. United had a pretty good combination, with an exceptional manager with a super eye for players and fantastic timing for how long you need a player in the team."

Klopp also spoke about how every replacement of Sir Alex was phenomenal and not overly priced. The former Borussia Dortmund manager remarked that Manchester United and Chelsea are two of the teams that will be very strong from the next season, considering Chelsea’s business in the transfer market.

Klopp also praised Pep Guardiola’s side, as they beat Arsenal saying, “How is it possible we have 22 more points than them?” 

The German manager also hit out at UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

He also said that he was not bothered about the league’s permanent suspension, rather he was worried about the huge number of people who were battling with their lives. Klopp was clear with his thoughts and was very vocal about how disappointed he was with the government’s planning on dealing with the virus.
