Man Utd legend Scholes: Any top player would love to play for Klopp

Manchester United great Paul Scholes has likened Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Liverpool's side ended a 30-year wait for the title in style this season, with Klopp's side amassing an awe-inspiring 99 points as they dominated England's top flight.

"I think it comes from the manager," Scholes said on BT Sport. "The character of Klopp, you'd just love to play for him. You can see that in his players.

"We had the best manager there was in Sir Alex - everyone was just desperate to play for him.

"You'd break a leg for him, do anything you could for him. It's a talent to get that out of you, and that's why they're the best managers in the world."
