Sir Alex Ferguson says he is concerned new manager Jurgen Klopp will “do very well” at Liverpool.
And the impact of the appointment is also being felt by Liverpool’s greatest rivals Manchester United, with Ferguson admitting he now fears success will return to a club with just one league Cup to show for the last nine years.
“Well it’s a good appointment. I admire him,” the former Manchester United boss told ESPN. “I know Jurgen pretty well through our meetings at coaches’ classes in Geneva.
“Strong personality, very strong, very stubborn, determined and his performances, and his career at Dortmund was a stellar rise to the top and I think he’ll do very well.
“I don’t like saying that, being Liverpool, because I’m worried about it but, no, he’ll do well.”
