Merson: Klopp could lead Rotherham into Premier League

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson says the qualities of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp would translate to players at any level.

Writing for Sky Sports, Merson stated: "This is a phenomenal football team, who I don't think get the credit they should.

"People say: 'Oh, Manchester City haven't done very well this season,' but this team is very good.

"I'm a great lover of Jurgen Klopp. I could use any team here, but I'm just going to say Rotherham… I think Klopp could go to Rotherham and take them to the Premier League in time. He's that good.

"I know Pep Guardiola's record is great, don't get me wrong, but every player is £80m, £90m in every position. I haven't seen anybody at Manchester City become much, much better, they were already great players."
