Liverpool boss Klopp: Sterling a fantastic football player,

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken of his admiration for Raheem Sterling.

Sterling returns to Anfield on Sunday with Manchester City.

Klopp said, "He was always a big threat and looks like improving and improving and improving - that's good for Manchester City and England.

"This morning, I saw a goal he scored against Manchester City when he was a Liverpool player (laughs!) It was a nice one as well!

"He was already a big talent at that time - a fantastic football player, I can't say anything bad about him.

"Just outstanding, I heard Pep saying if he starts to finish all the situations he has, then it will be really, he will be there.

"He is a threat but not the only one unfortunately, that's the problem we have."
