"He's so smart" - Gary Lineker lauds Jurgen Klopp

Former England international Gary Lineker has lauded Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

The German has certainly had an impact during his seven years at Anfield. Klopp has won the Champions League, Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, Premier League title, League Cup and FA Cup with Liverpool.

The 54-year-old has turned decent players into world-class footballers.

With that being the case, Lineker had plenty of good things to say about Klopp in a recent interview.

As quoted by Anfield Watch on Twitter, he told Sky the following: "Jurgen Klopp’s done it, he’s built this team from not much, already he’s got in (Diogo) Jota - who’s been brilliant - (Luis) Diaz, who’s been unbelievable. He's so smart."

Anfield Watch Verdict

Klopp signed a contract extension back in April. The German will be Liverpool's manager until 2026.

As quoted by Sky Sports, Klopp the club's official website the following when he extended his contract: "There's something to announce. Like last time, some will like it, some will not like it too much. If you do not like it, stop watching now.

"I stay for another two years. And not only me! No, all my coaches as well, which is the most important actually.

"Why? is now the question… because Ulla wants to stay! As a good husband, what are you doing when your wife wants to stay? You stay. That's not the only reason, but it's one of the reasons.

"You know, I love our club, it's the best place to be. I feel really, really lucky. What is it now? Six and a half years ago, FSG (club's owners) thought it would be a good idea to bring a German fella in and here we are. We will stay for another two, makes it four from now on.

"Wow! That's a long time in football. Hope we all will enjoy the time together. See you soon…"

Klopp has plenty of time to add to his legacy. Liverpool competed for the quadruple last season.

So, we are confident that Klopp will win another trophy or two before his time at Anfield comes to an end.

At the end of the day, there is nothing better than seeing your side win silverware. Winning trophies is not something that should be taken for granted by the Anfield faithful.
