Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has thrown a jab at United’s boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, stating that ‘if the Norwegian didn’t have a history as a United player, nobody would’ve thought about him.’ Although, Klopp insists that Ole deserves credit for his good work and that he’s happy for him.
Speaking about his thoughts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s stint as Manchester United manager, Jurgen Klopp said: “I think it is clear that if Ole wouldn’t have had that history as a player, a very successful history, at United then probably not many people at United would have thought about him.
“But because he did a brilliant job at Molde and has a Manchester history I think that was the idea and no one knew how it would work. But it worked out absolutely sensationally from the beginning, then with a little dip and now they look good.
“Of course, he deserves credit for that, together with his coaches because it’s always a team effort, but they do really well and I am happy for him. Even when he coaches a club I don’t think too often about I am really happy for a fellow manager who does really well and that’s what he’s done.”
Meanwhile, Ole has had his highs and lows as United boss but has done a reasonably good job this season, helping the Red Devils to jump up to second place in the Premier League and one step closer to the Europa League finals.
The manager will hope to get his second win of the season over Jurgen Klopp on Sunday evening and dent Liverpool’s Champions League dreams with a big win!
