Despite Liverpool’s recent struggles, Jurgen Klopp believes that their match against Manchester United is still the clash of titans
Jurgen Klopp thinks that Liverpool and Man United’s great rivalry is undeniable, even though Liverpool has been poor. The German tactician insists that it will be a blockbuster match when the two meet on Sunday.
Will Klopp’s Liverpool get into Champions League places?
Speaking to reporters, Klopp said: “We can cut it into pieces. Three points, that is pretty much the only normal stuff like in other games, three points, but the moment when Liverpool versus Manchester United is not a special game anymore then something went really wrong.
“I love football, I love the fuss we make of it, most of the time at least, and then it is like, Liverpool v United I want to see it. It has to be like that otherwise football would have absolutely no right to exist anymore. Again? Really? And how are they are doing?
“People want to know and need to know what both clubs are doing. That is why I have no problem with them, particularly. It is a big game and it always was in my life a big game – since I was allowed to watch it on television it always was. Thank God it is still one.”
While United are in flying form recently, sitting 14 points behind Arsenal with two fewer games, Liverpool’s form has been fluctuating throughout the season. The Reds currently sit at sixth, six points behind the fourth-placed Tottenham with two games less.
