Liverpool boss Klopp picks out two PL managers for special praise
Posted On March 5, 2021
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has picked out the success of Graham Potter and Scott Parker as a “good sign for English managers”.
Fulham, who play Liverpool on Sunday, have picked up recently under Parker and are now just three points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United and Brighton after looking almost certain to get relegated earlier in the season.
And Klopp was full of praise for both Parker and Brighton boss Potter, who masterminded a 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield last month.

Klopp told reporters: “He’s great. It was a difficult getting relegated and getting promoted. It was a big achievement to be promoted, I like that.
“The way Brighton and Fulham are playing is exceptional in this league. It is a good sign for English managers, the way Graham Potter and Scott Parker are doing. They are trying to stay in the league but do it in a football way. They are showing they are ready for big careers.
“Fulham have incredible possession for a team in that area of the table. I saw a very active Fulham side and Tottenham had to do everything to defend against them.
“We will have to do the same. I hope we can create more and have more chances against them but we cannot judge Fulham by the position they are in the table.”
On Liverpool’s struggles, Klopp added: “We adapt to the situation and the way we want to get stability. There is always an awful lot to do.
“The most important thing is out decision making in decisive moments. Chelsea had more shots on target than we had. Lots of things are good but the last pass was not.
“I don’t think [a drop-off] it was inevitable. Maybe constantly [moving] in one direction is not always possible but you can only do that if your problems are not bigger than solutions. Most difficult league to stay on top for a long period is England. One team who can is Manchester City. The rest all have to fight.
“Coming second or third in a year when it is not perfect is okay. Our situation is different – I think we agree it’s a really strange one, injury-wise and football is more rhythm than people think. We’ve never had that to build, we had to change too much. That’s clear.”
