Sir Alex has advice for Klopp over handling Liverpool expectations

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has offered advice to Jurgen Klopp over his management of Liverpool.

Ferguson offered a comparison between the situation Klopp has inherited at Anfield with the one he encountered at Manchester United when he took over in 1986.

“You can't allow the past to interrupt the future," he said. “That's what I always felt. When I went to United at first, I thought about the history but that history wouldn't do me any good – it was only the future that was going to help me.

“To rebuild that future took time. I did it with young players, I built a foundation that lasted a long time and anyone going to a club with history has to think about it, but never allow it to impede your ability to look to the future."
