Jamie Carragher revealed on Sky Sports that he’s changed his mind about Jurgen Klopp during the course of the German manager’s time in charge of Liverpool.
Klopp’s side take on Napoli tonight at Anfield in a crunch European tie, with the Reds needing to win in order to progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
And Carragher, who has always openly been a fan of Klopp, has had his mind changed about a few things regarding the Liverpool boss, particularly this season.
“My worry was it was always going to be an unbelievable ride with Klopp but will Liverpool win the big trophies at the end of it?” said Carragher, according to the Mirror.
“They may not but they’ve been to a Champions League final already.
“They are top of the league after 16 games and looking like they are going to mount a real title challenge.
“That’s because of the changes Jurgen Klopp has brought in. That’s the biggest testament to him as a manager.
“I think Klopp’s pigeonholed as running up and down the line, screaming and shouting and as this motivator but there’s not much thought or tactical stuff going on behind the scenes.
“I think there’s a myth with every manager because we always pigeonhole managers.
“But did I think Klopp was capable of making the changes I’ve seen, certainly this season and the back end of last season? No, so he’s actually an even better manager in my eyes for what’s happening this season.
“Not because Liverpool are top of the league, because they were top at this stage of the season two years ago under Klopp, but actually the way they are going about it.
“People are saying it’s not exciting but that’s absolute rubbish. What Liverpool are doing now is much, much better than anything we’ve seen under Jurgen Klopp since he arrived.”
