Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans has heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp’s side on the weekend marking a year since the German took charge.
Evans believes Klopp’s men are still lacking one thing in particular that is stopping them from becoming a big Premier League force – consistency.
He told the Liverpool Echo: “Just occasionally they become a little bit inconsistent but if we can get rid of that we can be a force to be reckoned with. I think Jurgen’s done fantastically in his first year, he’s got all the fans on his side.”
“So far, so good, I’ve been delighted with what I’ve seen from Jurgen’s team. I’m enjoying watching them and they seem to play with that little bit of freedom.”
The ex Reds boss tipped this group of Liverpool players for a successful year and one in which the club is able to get back into the Champions League.
He said: “Hopefully this year we can be successful and make the top four which I think we’ve got a really good chance of and then of course, it would be even nicer if we could go on and win it.”
The way things have started, there is no reason why we shouldn’t agree with him. This is one of strongest and most exciting squad of players we have had in recent years, so let’s make the most of it.
Evans also picked up on not only the personality of Jurgen Klopp but also his intelligence, which seems to be overlooked by many.
He said: “He talks a lot of sense and he’s passionate about the game.”
The former Borussia Dortmund boss knows what he is talking about and must take credit for Liverpool’s ever-improving style of play.
