Liverpool hero Robbie Fowler lifts lid on Jurgen Klopp rejecting Man Utd and Reds rebound | Football | Sport

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has brought success back to Anfield four years on from joining the club.

Reds legend Robbie Fowler has spoken about how the German has changed things on Merseyside and how he has rejected Manchester United and Real Madrid before replacing Brendan Rodgers.

Klopp helped Liverpool to Champions League success last season and the club currently sit top of the Premier League.

Fowler told the Mirror: “This weekend marks four years since Jurgen Klopp took charge of his first Liverpool game – and the difference now is frightening.

“I think the evolution of this current Reds team says so much about him as a ­manager.

“To have the faith, the belief and the understanding of the club to set a four-year plan – as he did – and deliver it shows his ­mettle.

“I am a big fan of Brendan Rodgers and, under him, I think Liverpool were potentially on the rise again, but Klopp has taken them to a totally different level.

“What I like about him, is that he BELIEVED he could.

“I did an interview with him a couple of years ago and he told me he turned down a couple of super-rich clubs after Dortmund – one of them was definitely ­Manchester United, the other probably Real Madrid – because he hated how they were focused solely on ­commercial influences.

“He said he liked Liverpool because they had a balance between the money needed to reach the top and the ­history and identity of the club and their fans.

“He also said he backed himself to make Anfield great again, even without the riches of the super-elite in world football – that he could do it another way. He’s not there yet, but he has certainly given Liverpool fans their ­belief back – and their pride too. I have witnessed that.

“I took my lad Jacob on the bus tour around the city with the Champions League ­trophy afterwards. His face after that win was a picture.

“It was a mixture of marvel and joy in what it meant to be a Liverpool fan at that ­moment, but also ­anticipation about what is still to come. That was the first trophy and we all ­believe there will be more.”

Liverpool return to action after the international break against arch-rivals Manchester United next Sunday at Old Trafford (4.30pm).
