Jurgen Klopp a perfect fit for Liverpool, says legend Kenny Dalglish

Kenny Dalglish Watches On

The Reds drew 1-1 with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp is the perfect fit for Liverpool according to club legend Kenny Dalglish, in comments published by the Liverpool Echo.

The German has been a big hit at Anfield since replacing Brendan Rodgers back in October.

His first season in charge has been something of a mixed bag, with his side inconsistent in their performances to say the least.

Nonetheless, many are predicting a bright future for the Reds under his leadership once he can mould the squad to how he wants it.

One who has been impressed in Kenny Dalglish, who hopes Klopp, can return his old side to where it once was.

“I think Jurgen Klopp is the perfect fit for this club,” the Liverpool Echo reports him saying.

“It will be very interesting to see who he signs this summer. What I like about him is that he wears his heart on his sleeve.”

"He kicks and heads every ball, and that passion is one of the reasons fans love him so much. I hope he gets the club back to where it was.”

Chief among Klopp’s thoughts this summer will surely be his defence, with that having proved a weakness in his side this season.

He has already move to secure Joel Matip from Schalke to fix that problem and more defensive signings seem likely given how that area of the team has struggled in recent years.

The left back position should arguably be a priority, with Alberto Moreno having struggled to impress again when given the chance.
