David James hoping to see Jurgen Klopp's side edge out Man City

David James hoping to see Jurgen Klopp's side edge out Man City”

Klopp was similarly adored at Borussia Dortmund, where he enjoyed seven memorable years between 2008 and 2015.

Dortmund were in need of a new coach in the summer of 2018 following the departure of Peter Stoger.

The result of ticking each box, and another problem for Manchester City, is that Liverpool and their manager are left pushing themselves for more.The Premier League leaders toast the anniversary of Klopp's appointment on the back of a ideal weekend that included an injury-time victor over Leicester plus defeats for Manchester City, Manchester United and Everton.

It says a lot about Klopp's brilliance that Liverpool supporters are so desperate for him to stay at Anfield forever.

"I knew that Jurgen would [decline], that he will fulfil his contract in Liverpool", Watzke is quoted as saying in a new book about his career, "REAL LOVE".

Watzke conceded he "knew" Klopp would honour his contract at Liverpool but said he felt obligated to pose the question to Dortmund's longest-serving coach. A life with BVB.

"I did not expect that at all, but I would not have forgiven myself for not asking him at that moment".

Liverpool are already eight points clear of second-placed Manchester City in the Premier League, and Watzke believes Klopp's ability to be so successful is due to the fact he is "always honest".

"The most important thing in our relationship was and is that we can rely on each other blindly".

"But if you want to go in a new direction, and we had to hit a new path at BVB at that point, then I had to at least ask Jurgen if it was a possibility". He is always honest, even in the job. When I said goodbye, real tears came. 'I thought he was kidding. "Are you stupid, have you been drinking?".

The report says that Alisson is still in line to make his Reds return against Manchester United next time out, while adding that English midfielders Chamberlain and Lallana have also been told they'll get more games in the coming weeks. "I have a few more years in Liverpool".
