Emre Can gives his clear verdict on reportedly Liverpool-bound Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool star Emre Can has hailed manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool star Emre Can has told Die Welt in his native Germany that he believes Jurgen Klopp is a 'great coach' amid reports that he will join the Reds imminently.

Manager Brendan Rodgers parted company with Liverpool on Sunday evening following a 1-1 draw against Merseyside rivals Everton, with the Reds now looking to find an appointment over the international break.

Unsurprisingly, one name has stolen the headlines. Fans are desperate to see Jurgen Klopp take the role, having impressed so much with former club Borussia Dortmund.

Two Bundesliga title wins and a Champions League final place in 2013 saw Klopp establish himself as one of the top managers in Europe, but after a difficult season last term, Klopp left his role for a break from management.

Yet just months on, it now seems that Klopp is set to make the move to Liverpool. The Telegraph report that Klopp will agree a three-year deal at Anfield, and is expected to arrive on Merseyside within the next 48 hours ahead of his proposed unveiling later this week.

It's an ambitious appointment from Liverpool, if true, and one man who will certainly be familiar with Klopp's work is Reds midfielder Emre Can.

The German international, 22, will have seen Klopp's work having played for Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen, and he has told Die Welt in Germany that Klopp is a 'great coach'.

"Jürgen Klopp is certainly a great coach," said Can. "I think he has demonstrated in Dortmund that he can match any team in the world," he added.

The 48-year-old will be charged with the task of turning Liverpool's fortunes around after a slow start to the season - and with his fast-paced, high-pressing style, the Anfield crowd could be in for a rollercoaster ride under Klopp.
