    You have to laugh. Look at the track record of the two of them combined attempting to manage. Then having a dig at fergie. Lol

    I quite enjoyed it, seemed quite staged at times of course.

    Fergie was an excellent domestic manager (13 PLs in 26 years) but tactically inept and strategically deficient on the biggest stage (CL). Won it twice in 26 years with the club with one of the biggest budgets in world football. For context, Paisley won it 3 times in 9 years.

    Fergie's longevity is his biggest asset, building team after team and keeping them motivated. He has won more league titles in England than any other manager but is one of 17 managers to have won the CL twice (Paisley, Ancelotti and Zidane won it three times of course).

    Klopp has been manager of Liverpool for 4 years and won CL.

    Fergie won his first CL in his 13th season as manager of Man U.

    Fergie won the treble after 13 seasons. Klopp has another 9 seasons to do it. Not impossible is it? Improbably maybe but not impossible.

    To compare the two managers, you would have to wait until the end of their careers I suppose.

    Deflecting like a tory

    In 18 years he has 2 bundesliga, a German cup, champions league and a super cup. Horrendous. 400 million quid spent at Liverpool alone.

    Fergie is ten times what Klopp could ever be

    Fergie started managing in 1974. Won his first major trophy in 92/93 after 18 years.
    Klopp started managing in 2001, won major trophy in 10/11 (Bundesliga), 11/12(Bundesliga) and 18/19 (CL). 3 major trophies in 18 years.

    Nobody will stay at a top club for 26 years. Fergie was a one off TBH. His will to win and longevity will always be respected and admired by all.
