Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on Friday urged fans not expect them to replicate the success of Manchester United under their legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Klopp’s remarks came ahead of their game against Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.
Under Sir Alex Ferguson, United dominated English football as they won 13 League titles.
“To be honest, I don’t think it is possible to get to their level of dominance ever again. It is now more likely that the other clubs will compete for different things because of the financial power of a lot of teams,” LFC TV quoted Klopp as saying.
“This kind of up and down changes of the squad we see now means a dominance like Liverpool and United had before is unlikely,” he added.
The Reds are currently top of the Premier League table, with 61 points from 21 games, and are yet to be beaten this season.
In fact, Jurgen Klopp’s men are unbeaten in their last 38 Premier League fixtures.
“I don’t read these things. It does not feel ‘ooh’ because it is Sir Alex Ferguson. I could not care less. I had a similar situation in Dortmund in 2011 where we were surprisingly good and the questions were similar and all the stories were sensationally positive. I could
nearly walk on water,” Klopp said.
United are the only team, so far, to win points from Liverpool after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in October.
However, with a young, the Red Devils have struggled to find consistency.
