‘You don’t want Liverpool to have success’: BBC pundit makes admission about Reds

Former Everton defender Kevin Kilbane has made an admission about the progress which his old club’s rivals have been making under the management of Jurgen Klopp over the past couple of seasons.

When the German coach arrived at the club, the Reds were not in a great position after choosing to say goodbye to Brendan Rodgers, who failed to finish in the top four of the Premier League, even after he nearly won the title in 2014.

Klopp made it to the Europa League final in his debut season as the club lost to Sevilla and last season, there was another European final for the Reds who were beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Liverpool have come back even stronger this year, having pushed Manchester City all the way in the race for the Premier League title which they lost by just a point.

Apart from that, the Reds have reached the final of the Champions League for a second year in a row where they will face Tottenham Hotspur and for an ex-Everton player like Kevin Kilbane, it is hard to watch.

Speaking to Final Score on BBC One (12/05/2019 5:10 pm), the BBC Sport pundit praised Klopp for what he’s done at Anfield this season.

“He’s a class act,” Kilbane told Final Score.

“It pains you to see, I’m an ex-Evertonian, you don’t want Liverpool to have the success they have been getting. But he is an absolute class act, Jurgen Klopp.”
