Jurgen Klopp perfect fit for Liverpool, says Jurgen Klinsmann
Former Germany boss Jurgen Klinsmann believes Jurgen Klopp's character and upbringing make him a perfect fit for Liverpool.
The German won his first title with the Merseyside club after Saturday's Champions League final triumph over Tottenham and led them to a second-place finish in the Premier League with a massive 97 points, just one behind eventual winners Manchester City.
And Klinsmann believes his fellow countryman's upbringing his endeared him to the club's supporters.
"He's just a person you want to wish him well. He puts so much energy in there, so much effort and hard work in there, on all sides of the game," Klinsmann told the Mirror.
"The way he won over the people in Liverpool and the way he became one of them, it just deserves then, the end result, meaning now this very special title.
"Klopp fits Liverpool so perfectly because his background is very humble.
"His background it's blue collar, hardworking, they live and die for their club and so, his whole life basically was always very, very closely connected to the people, to the neighbourhoods."
Klopp's current contract with Liverpool runs until 2022.
