Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: 'Sir Alex Ferguson is the John Lennon of football'

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp describes Manchester United's former boss Sir Alex Ferguson as the "John Lennon of football".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has described legendary former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson as the "John Lennon of football".

The Scotsman, who retired from management in 2013, won 38 trophies during his 27-year spell in charge of Liverpool's arch rivals.

While Ferguson has been Liverpool's long-time enemy, Klopp has taken a moment to describe the Scotsman as the football equivalent to legendary musician John Lennon, who co-founded The Beatles.

"I have a few really good memories with Sir Alex Ferguson," Klopp told reporters in Friday's press conference. "It's a big honour to talk with Sir Alex. I needed 10 minutes to understand his language, but then it was okay.

"Maybe he is the greatest ever - the John Lennon of football. It was really great to talk with him for me for sure. I have a big respect for him because of what he has done in his life before and it's not easy for another manager to do that.

"What he said about me, I don't know, I didn't read it, but I think it was positive because we had a good time together."

Klopp, who replaced Brendan Rodgers as manager in October, will have his first taste of the fierce rivalry between Liverpool and United when the two teams go head to head at Anfield on Sunday.
