Klopp expects Ole to be named permanent United boss

first_imgAhead of Liverpool’s trip to Old Trafford, Klopp said he had been impressed with the job the Norwegian is doing at Old Trafford.“He has the quality and he had the luck in the right moment,” said the German. “Now he’s in charge and there is no doubt that he will be the manager next year as well, that’s clear.“Can you imagine one situation when they say ‘we are bringing in another manager’? Then a new manager will lose one game and that’s not possible.“He deserves (the job) 100 percent, he did everything that you have to do to be successful with them.”Klopp, whose team are level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, said all managers needed an element of luck.“When I went from Mainz to (Borussia) Dortmund, people said I have no international experience. It was true but it’s not something you can buy. You have to make it.“And if Ole’s not a former player of Manchester United then he will not have made a move from Norway to Manchester United. That’s clear. But if you get the chance you have to use it. Of course he’s showed everything you need together with his coaches. They made a few smart decisions.”The Liverpool boss said United, who have battled their way into the top four, would be a different proposition from the side his team beat 3-1 at Anfield in Mourinho’s last match in charge.“It’s a big one and we know that it’s a difficult one as well,” Klopp said, adding that United’s attacking players were full of confidence, with Paul Pogba outstanding in recent weeks.“They are in a really good moment, really good moment,” he said. “They are physically strong, they defend well, they attack well.”“They have all different ways in their toolbox to get results,” he added.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s German manager Jurgen Klopp © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 22 – Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be the next permanent manager of Manchester United.
