Former Liverpool striker and club legend Kenny Dalglish has described manager Jurgen Klopp as “a special breed”.

Sky Sports News presenter Jim White revealed those comments about the German from Dalglish on his personal Twitter account.

Klopp, who replaced Brendan Rodgers in the Anfield dugout in October 2015, has overseen a huge transformation at the club since his appointment.

First of all, he has changed the style of play at the Premier League giants, employing a high pressing game which has seen the club become one of the most dangerous attacking sides in the division.

This led to Liverpool reaching two cup finals last season, first of all losing out on penalties in the League Cup to Manchester City before La Liga giants Sevilla inflicted a 3-1 defeat in the Europa League.

This season, Klopp has led the Merseyside outfit to a title charge as they are currently sitting in third place on 45 points from 21 games, seven points behind leaders Chelsea.

Additionally, they are the division’s top scorers with 49 goals scored from their 21 games, one ahead of Arsenal and four ahead of Chelsea.

On Wednesday, they will be looking to progress through to the next round of the FA Cup when they take on League Two side Plymouth in a third-round replay.

The following week, Klopp’s side are aiming to reach the EFL Cup final for the second consecutive season.

But first, they will have to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg against Southampton at Anfield.
