Peter Schmeichel reacts on Twitter to Jurgen Klopp’s confident claim

Jürgen Klopp thinking

Peter Schmeichel suggests that Jurgen Klopp has already made his first mistake as Liverpool manager.

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Jurgen Klopp’s claim that he can win the Premier League with Liverpool.

Klopp, who has succeeded Brendan Rodgers as the Reds manager, said in a press conference on Friday morning that he aims to win the league title inside the next four years.

"If we sit here in four years, I think we'll have won one title -- I'm pretty sure,” ESPN quotes the German as saying. “If not, the next one may be in Switzerland.”

Former United goalkeeper Schmeichel has mocked Klopp on Twitter, suggesting that he has made his first mistake by promising to win the Premier League title.

Former Liverpool duo John Arne Riise and Dietmar Hamann, though, were impressed with Klopp’s first press conference as a Reds manager.

Liverpool are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with 12 points from eight matches, just three points behind fourth-place Crystal Palace.

The Reds are very much in the running for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, and fans will hope that Klopp can galvanise the team.

The Merseyside outfit will take on Tottenham Hotspur away from home at White Hart Lane in the league after the international break.
