Jurgen Klopp hails Manchester City's "wonderful" player

Published 1 Comments

Football News

The Premier League is currently seeing how dangerous Liverpool can be after a full pre-season under Jurgen Klopp.

There was plenty of promise surrounding Anfield after the Germain led his team to two finals in his first season and, six games into the new campaign, Robbie Savage and Gerard Houllier are already holding Liverpool up as title contenders.

Their stock has risen thanks to wins at the Emirates Stadium and Stamford Bridge, while it’s also hard not to be impressed by a 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur, a 4-1 win against Leicester City and Saturday’s 5-1 mauling of Hull City.

You know when Sky Sports’ pundits Tony Cascarino and Tony Cottee include James Milner as a left back in the Premier League team of the season so far that Klopp is doing something right.

There’s plenty of early season hype but Klopp knows only too well that more challenges are to come.

Liverpool are yet to face the two Manchester giants this season, and Klopp is probably ecstatic that he doesn’t have to face Pep Guardiola’s resurgent Citizens until New Year’s Eve.

City's stunning start

If Liverpool have been impressive, Manchester City have been sensational. Ten wins in 10 in all competitions, those suggesting it would take a while for Guardiola’s players to grow accustomed to the Spaniard’s unique system have gone into hiding.

He’s getting the best out of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, while Ilkay Gundogan and John Stones have settled very well since arriving in the summer.

Yet it’s David Silva who has really caught Klopp’s attention.

The Spaniard has been shifted about in the City line-up to ensure De Bruyne and Sterling can be used in their best positions, popping up in centre midfield and on the right wing, yet he still remains a superb player.

Klopp: Silva is a wonderful player

And when asked by Sky Sports to name the one opposing player who stands out, it was Silva’s name who came out of Klopp’s mouth.

"I like David Silva. I like his style of play,” the Liverpool boss said.

"I don't know if he's dangerous, but he's a wonderful player. He’s everywhere and so skilled and he has such a good attitude.

"Even now I don’t hear his name too often after the wonderful start by Man City and I’m pretty sure he has his role and I like his style of play."

All players are dangers - when you let them

Showing that the only players he wants to talk about are his own, Klopp quickly insisted that any player can cause problems if afforded the chance.

“There are a few good player around but I’m actually not that interested in the players of other teams so they are all dangerous when you let them be dangerous,” he added.
