Jurgen Klopp’s ex-coach Eckhard Krautzun has reported that the current Merseyside Reds manager had a hope of one-day becoming a Manchester United boss.

On Saturday, the Merseyside outfit will host their bitter Premier League rivals Manchester United, and Klopp former head-coach Krautzun has suggested that German manager could have opted as the Red Devils boss.
“It would be his dream to go to England one day, and his favourite club would be United. That’s what he said,” Krautzun told The Set Pieces.
“After three or four months not working, I knew that he wanted to be in action again. When the offer came from Liverpool, I knew he would not hesitate because he wanted to get into a top club in England.”
The Merseyside Reds currently sit seventh in the English top-tier after a slow start of the season.
