Man City great Toure: Why Klopp has proved himself a genius at Liverpool

Manchester City great Yaya Toure has sung the praises of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Toure has declared the German a "genius" for his success with the Reds.

He told the Guardian: “Jurgen Klopp is a genius.

"He brought a huge number of players to the peak: Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson. They all came to the team as good players. Now they stand out a lot.

"And I'm not talking about the many players from the Liverpool academy. Only the best are capable of this."
