I don’t like saying that, being Liverpool, I’m worried about it!”

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has joked he is “worried” about Liverpool’s appointment of Jurgen Klopp

“If you don’t trust your manager, why have him there? He is the man who should be deciding which kind of player he wants, the type of player, position he wants, his character he wants, it’s the manager who knows more than anyone.
“There’s a lot of this happening in the game now. Why give him a job if he can’t do it?
Klopp vowed to bring the Premier League title to Anfield within four years at his unveiling on Thursday and Ferguson says he has the character and personality to be a hit on Merseyside.
The Scot also insisted Klopp would not accept not being in charge of signings and says the club need to trust him in the transfer market.
“When they sit around that table to appoint a manager, do they say ‘well, he can be part of the committee’? It’s wrong. This Moneyball idea, about look at statistics of players and bypassing the manager’s thoughts. I don’t think Jurgen Klopp will accept that.”. I think it’s wrong. “It’s a good appointment, I admire him, I know Jurgen pretty well through our meetings with the elite coaches classes in Geneva,” he told ESPN.
“Strong personality, very strong, very stubborn, determined, and his performances, his career at Dortmund was a stellar rise to the top and I think he’ll do very well
