Liverpool will take on Leicester City this weekend in the Premier League in what promises to be a special match for multiple reasons.
Firstly, Liverpool are top and take on third place Leicester who have done really well to be above the likes of Spurs and Chelsea. it is also because Klopp’s men take on their former boss Brendan Rodgers who has done a fantastic job at the King Power stadium.
“I’m really looking forward to going back,” said Rodgers. “I had the real privilege of managing there. So much learning took place for me at Liverpool.
“I always take the positives when I analyse my time there. The first couple of seasons went well and we went close to the title. The third year was more difficult but there was great learning for me as a coach. The fourth season didn’t last so long.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the likes of Jordan [Henderson] and James Milner. They were real leaders and you can see how they’ve developed.
“There were so many highs as a young manager and I’ll always be grateful for that.”
“Jürgen has done a brilliant job,” added Rodgers. “He’s brought a real harmony and togetherness to the team and supporters. The consistency has helped.
“There’s areas of the field where he’s brought in top, top players – Virgil [van Dijk], Alisson – they’re top-level players who can really improve the squad.
“They’re in a great position with young talents and experienced players. They look very strong.”
