Former Arsenal footballer Paul Merson believes that if Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp were in charge of Rotherham United, he would eventually take them to the Premier League.
Merson was discussing the Liverpool manager in a piece he wrote for Sky Sports, and he was explaining just how good of a job the German has done at Liverpool.
He went as far to say that if Klopp were in charge of Rotherham United, who are currently competing in League One, he would eventually take them to the Premier League.
Merson said: I’m a great lover of Jurgen Klopp. I could use any team here, but I’m just going to say Rotherham… I think Klopp could go to Rotherham and take them to the Premier League in time. He’s that good.”
It is a massive statement from Merson, but one can understand what it is he is trying to say. Klopp has always gone to teams which have been struggling in the past.
Borussia Dortmund were a club that needed a lift, and Klopp very much provided that. The same can be said about Liverpool before he arrived.
Since joining, he has a turned the Reds from a mediocre team to a side that is the current champions of Europe and the world.
