Liverpool Manager Klopp names the best player he has ever managed.

The German Manager began his managerial career when he was 33 and having managed Borussia Dortmund for seven years and Liverpool since 2015 – he has coached some exceptionally talented players.

Klopp spent seven years with Mainz before landing the Borussia Dortmund job and it was here where he cemented his reputation as one of the European football’s best young coach.

Under Klopp’s management, Dortmund won back to back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012. They also reached the Champions League final for only the second time in their history.

But when it came down to the best player he has ever managed, he opted to pick Mario Götze. Klopp was the man who gave Götze his first team debut at Borussia Dortmund.

The German playmaker has been labelled as the ‘Golden Boy’ of German Football – a reputation that was only enhanced in 2014 when he scored the winner in the World Cup Final.

During the same answer, he also revealed that Robert Lewandowski is the player who improved the most under his management.

While, Lewandowski went on to became one of the world’s best centre forwards, scoring 125 goals in 164 appearances for Bayern and becoming Poland’s all-time top scorer, Götze’s career declined and he struggled with injuries and illness.
