Jurgen Klopp has been at Liverpool for almost two years now and it’s safe to say that the jury is still out on him.

Whilst he’s failed to win any silverware, he led them to two finals in his debut campaign and achieved a top-four finish in his first full season.

Liverpool fans are now looking for Klopp to take them to the next level with the club having not won a trophy since their League Cup victory in 2012.

But the German's inability to sign a central defender in the summer has seen a few questions asked of him with the Reds seemingly still some way off from challenging for a league title.

But Liverpool fans still adore him and you simply can’t forget his previous achievements for Borussia Dortmund, where he led the club to consecutive Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final.

And despite what they say, rivals fans also know what a good manager he still is.

That much can be identified to what they were saying when Klopp was officially announced as Liverpool boss.

We’ve stumbled upon a 66-page thread in the Red Cafe forum - a forum for Manchester United fans.

The thread - which was created on September 24 2015, a few weeks before Klopp was officially announced as manager - begins with links suggesting that Klopp is close to taking the Liverpool job.

A few worried United fans commented but were still hoping that he wouldn’t take the job at Anfield.

“Please no. My favorite manager. Would hate to hate him,” wrote one United fan.

“It'll be tough hating one of my favorite managers,” another added.

The thread continues on for the next few days and things get interesting when Brendan Rodgers gets sacked on October 4.

"S***, s***, s***. I desperately wanted him to avoid Liverpool. He'll make them a force IMO. With the money Liverpool have to spend, if they give him time, he'll make the best team they have had since eighties."

And things get even worse when he’s officially announced as their new boss on October 8.

“Super-recruiter, super-motivator, all these potentially great players LFC already have. I’m in bits here lads, we've no chance,” a devastated United fan said.

"There's no getting around it, Klopp going to Liverpool is very disappointing. Add to that, Giggs is our likely next manager and it's downright fecking depressing,” another exclaimed.

And so on…

Honestly, if you’re a Liverpool fan, you will thoroughly enjoy the 66 pages of United fans being scared of Liverpool getting Klopp.

You can’t really blame them though, to be honest.

At the time, they had to endure Louis van Gaal as their manager.
