While the German gaffer celebrates his premier league trophy, the media had a dig into his past life to when he ( Jurgen Klopp) almost became a successor to former ‘Red Devils’ Sir Alex Ferguson.
According to the Liverpool coach, his wife Ulla Sandrock advised him against taking the Manchester United job back in 2013, and when the Liverpool offer came in, she smiled at it.
In an interview with TV2 in Norway, former Liverpool defender explained ; ” I interviewed Klopp for sky, and I asked if he and Liverpool were created for each other. He looked at me and asked ‘why ?’
”Then Klopp replied he could have taken over Manchester United, but his wife said it wasn’t right.
”But when the Liverpool offer arrived, she said it was right. There’s something strange there. It is as if he’s created for Liverpool.”
The 52 years has just won the premier league title for The Reds after a long long wait, and according to some of the fans, it would’ve been weird to have even imagined Klopp on the Manchester United side line.
