⚽ Liverpool boss Klopp hails "exceptional" Kroos: Busquets brilliant too! ⚽
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he’s a big fan of Spanish footballers.
Speaking with Marca, Klopp name-checked stars from Real Madrid, Barcelona – and even Manchester City – as among those he admires.
The German enthused: “(Sergi) Busquets is only 28 years old, right? What a player! He looks like he’s been playing for 16 years in this position…
“During my time in Germany, I admired Thiago Alcantara, for example. This year, he breaks the ceiling. And what about David Silva? There are others … Pedro is playing well at the moment …”
Klopp also sung the praises of one compatriot.
“Toni Kroos is an exceptional footballer, a genius. He is so subtle with the ball at his feet … At Real Madrid, he is very important. I love him so much. He always knows what to do with the ball.”
