Former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson is of the opinion that Liverpool has made the right choice by signing former Borussia Dortmund boss, Jürgen Klopp.
Speaking to ESPN, the Manchester United Legend stated that Klopp has got the personality and character to do a good job for Liverpool.
“It’s a good appointment, I admire him, I know Jurgen pretty well through our meetings with the elite coaches classes in Geneva.
The former Red Devils boss joked he was ‘worried’ about Klopp’s potentials as that could be detrimental to the fortunes of United.
“Strong personality, very strong, very stubborn, determined, and his performances, 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, I’m worried about it!” the 73-year-old stated.
Ferguson warned Liverpool owners that Klopp will not accept players signings being made for him but would prefer to take charge of that aspect himself.
“If you don’t trust your manager, why have him there? He is the man who should be deciding which kind of player he wants, the type of player, position he wants, his character he wants, it’s the manager who knows more than anyone.
“There’s a lot of this happening in the game now. This Moneyball idea, about look at statistics of players and bypassing the manager’s thoughts. I think it’s wrong. Why give him a job if he can’t do it?
“When they sit around that table to appoint a manager, do they say ‘well, he can be part of the committee’? It’s wrong. I don’t think Jurgen Klopp will accept that,” Ferguson explained.
