"I'm happy to see it, it's amazing to see where Liverpool are at the moment."


Those were the words of former Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun.


Jurgen Klopp continues to attract praise for the brilliant work he has done at Anfield as they sit 25 points atop the Premier League table.


With the 2019-20 season set to resume on June 17, the Merseyside club need just two wins to be labelled champions of the English top-flight.


And, Benayoun is excited to see how former Dortmund boss Klopp has turned Liverpool into an "amazing" team.


"I'm happy to see it, it's amazing to see where Liverpool are at the moment," Benayoun, who plied his trade at Anfield between 2007 and 2010, told LFCTV's Legends in Lockdown.



"From what I see, they play amazing football. The most special thing is you feel they are a team – everyone knows what they're doing on the pitch, you don't have one or two big stars and everything is on them. The star of the team is the team itself, one unit. They play together.


"And the commitment the players have is something special. I don't see any other team in Europe that has this commitment from the goalkeeper to the striker to work together, to press. When they decide to press they press everyone, no-one can play against them. It's amazing.


"Of course, big credit to the manager, to Jurgen Klopp. I think this is the big difference from years before. I really enjoy watching them. Hopefully they will continue like this and make us proud."
