Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has revealed what he finds “unbelievable” about Liverpool Football Club right now.
Neville was speaking to former Red Steven Gerrard about the difference that manager Jurgen Klopp has made at the club.
Gary Neville told Soccerbox, which was broadcasted on Optus Sport (15:30): “The connection between the manager, the players, the fans. It’s unbelievable.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Before Klopp arrived at Liverpool in 2015, the club’s last trophy came in 2012. That gives you an idea of how much the club was struggling in regards to silverware.
With that being the case, the atmosphere around the club was not what it used to be. However, once Klopp assembled a team which gave the supporters something to sing about, that changed.
All of a sudden, you could feel a connection between the players and the fans. Neville, who is a Manchester United supporter at heart, can even feel it.
I will never forget when Klopp got the players to thank the Kop after Liverpool drew 2-2 with West Bromwich Albion in 2015.
It was the beginning of the players forging a connection with the fans in my opinion.
