Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has crowned Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp ‘King of the Premier League’.
Koeman, who saw his Southampton team smashed 6-1 at home in the Capital One Cup by Klopp’s resurgent Liverpool in midweek, reckons the German can reinvent English football with his philosophy of all-out attack.
He said: “Jurgen Klopp plays real attacking football – the kind of football the public wants to see.
“It is completely different stuff. We now see a totally different Liverpool side. They are an exception compared to the biggest clubs in the Premier League.
“None of the big clubs dare to play real attacking football.
“Manchester City don’t do it, Manchester United don’t, Arsenal don’t and Chelsea don’t.
“Their intentions are totally different. They all drop back a bit, they wait for a mistake and then come out to attack. That is not what I call taking initiative. They don’t want to be dominant or attack, despite all the quality they have.”
