  • Ex-BVB boss Klopp is not interested in comparisons with two of Liverpool's all-time greats.

  • It took Liverpool three decades to win the English top-flight silverware again.

Klopp is the third manager in Liverpool's history to win both the English top flight title and the Champions League.
Klopp is the third manager in Liverpool's history to win both the English top flight title and the Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp insists that he will not compare himself with Liverpool legends Kenny Dalglish and Bill Shankly, despite his triumphs in the Premier League and Champions League.


The Merseyside club were crowned champions of the English top flight last week as they ended their 30-year wait for the league title, and just over a year ago, they were crowned champions of Europe for a sixth time.


The former Borussia Dortmund headcoach Klopp is the third manager in Liverpool's history to win both trophies, with several ex-coaches like Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan as well as Dalglish and Shankly unable to achieve the feat.


However, Klopp says nobody should compare him with Dalglish and Shankly.



"I'm rather surprised to be honest," Klopp told Sky Sports. "The reasons why Kenny [didn't win] I know, but with Bill I don't know exactly why he couldn't win it.


"But it is not important. I would never compare myself with them. Nobody should do that actually. It was different times, building a club and carrying a club.


"It's a big achievement, I know that. I know how we did it, pretty much because of all the hard work people put in at Melwood and the passion that people showed for this club.


"It's never easy, it was not easy this time but it makes it much more valuable, worthy and emotional."
