Thierry Henry gives his verdict on Jurgen Klopp

Thierry Henry suggests that Jurgen Klopp is a good managerial appointment for Liverpool.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has explained in The Sun why Jurgen Klopp is the perfect manager for Liverpool.

Klopp was appointed the Liverpool boss on a three-year contract last week following the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers last weekend.

“Now Liverpool have turned to Jurgen Klopp and he is the perfect fit because he showed at Dortmund that he knows how to wake a sleeping giant,” former Arsenal striker Henry wrote in The Sun.

“The Merseyside supporters will love him because, like them, he’s a humble guy with massive desire and passion.

“The key thing with Klopp is his amazing transition game. Whether they are going forward or backwards, the whole team goes at full force. It’s like a tidal wave.”

Klopp is one of the best managers in the game at the moment, and Liverpool fans should be optimistic of success under him.

The way the German coach made Borussia Dortmund competitive not only in the Bundesliga but also in the Champions League is praiseworthy.

The fact that Klopp has come in so early in the season is also going to be helpful. The Reds are still in the running for a top-four finish in the Premier League, and the former Mainz boss will be aiming for that.

The 48-year-old will also get to sign players in the January transfer window if he thinks he needs to.
