Roy Keane: ‘I’d Love To Play For Klopp!’ – Honest Admission After Liverpool’s Dominant Win

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane recently confessed that if he were still a player, he would have liked to play for Jurgen Klopp.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Keane opened up about his thoughts:

“Look at the bigger picture and what he’s done for this football club and it is fantastic.

We talk about the type of football he’s played, it’s been very entertaining.

He’s giving young players a chance. They’re back competing at the highest level and won some of the biggest prizes.”

Keane’s praise for Klopp comes on the heels of Liverpool’s dominant 4-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. Liverpool faced some recent setbacks in their heist of the Premier League title. They also suffered an early exit from the Europa League.

Although, Klopp will still leave having won the Carabao Cup this season. And he also secured a place in the Champions League for next term.

Over the course of his nine-year tenure with the Reds, Klopp has guided Liverpool to numerous domestic and international trophies. That list includes both the Premier League and Champions League titles.

“He’s also missed out and been close. This is a proper rollercoaster for him and one of his strengths is that he’s an emotional guy.

We see that on the sideline with him.”

Roy Keane acknowledged Klopp’s honesty and praised his ability to connect emotionally with his team.

“He’s a very honest manager and I don’t think he plays too many games. He’s not like this robot after games where he’s almost just media-trained.

He seems a very honest manager and I always try to picture if I was a player back in the day, I think I’d like to play for this guy.”

Klopp has only one home game left as Liverpool boss. He expressed his satisfaction with how his team performed in their win against Tottenham on Sunday. He said,

“I really liked the way the boys played. I liked the individual performances, how we played together.

So many good things.

It was a really good football game, and I think that’s what everybody should expect from us – results as well.

We delivered both.”

As Klopp prepares to bid farewell to Liverpool, the transfer market is abuzz with discussions about his potential successor, with Feyenoord’s Arne Slot reportedly being the frontrunner.
