It’s a slightly weird position to be in as a Liverpool fan, hearing your arch-rivals take to Twitter in praise of our manager…
But Jurgen Klopp was so insightful on Sky Sports Monday Night Football last night, that’s exactly what happened.
Supporters from United, Everton, Chelsea and Arsenal all bombarded Twitter to say that while they still hate Liverpool (fair enough, really – we feel exactly the same), they cannot help but admire Klopp.
The German was the top trend on Twitter and more people changed channel when the game started than when he was on-screen the previous hour!
Here’s some of the praise begrudgingly handed out…
I hate that Jurgen Klopp is Liverpool manager, because I genuinely love the bloke. Listening to him on #MNF is unbelievable. Great manager.

Klopp great on #MNF, very engaging and charismatic manager who plays intense and exciting football. Makes it very hard to hate Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp is sound. It’s fashionable to hate him because he manages Liverpool. Same as people who hated Suarez but now love him.
