Benteke never fully impressed at the Anfield club, but was disappointed when Klopp sold him to Crystal Palace.
And the Belgium international is not bitter towards the German manager, despite not getting many chances to impress under his tutelage.
It appeared that Klopp and Benteke had clashing styles, which meant the manager needed to find players who were more suited to playing the way he wanted.
"Klopp is still the best manager I worked with, although I didn't play a lot," Benteke shared with reporters.
"He wanted fast players upfront. I understood his decision."
