The biggest bromance among managers in football has to be between Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger and his Liverpool counterpart, Jurgen Klopp.
The respect between both manager is somewhat remarkable and it stretched back to Klopp’s time at Liverpool.
Speaking to the press ahead their game against Arsenal, Klopp further demonstrated the respect he has for Arsene Wenger call him a legend.
“He’s a legend. That’s how it is. Becoming an Arsenal legend is not the most easy job in the world,” Klopp said.
“I am pretty sure they’ve had a pre-season that they’re fine with. They’ve had a few injury problems, but we should not think too much about them. They will still be active in the transfer market. I read today in the newspaper that Arsene said he will work as long as he is physically able to. That’s one plan for life! It shows how big his love is for the game and for the work he is doing. He is very experienced and a very good manager, so if we win it will not be because of him!”
Klopp, who is looking forward to the Arsenal game said both Sturridge nd Milners are doubtful for the Arsenal game. On Daniel Sturridge, Klopp said “On Wednesday he could train. On Thursday, he felt [it] a little bit so we will have to see.
“Of course, he had a few days where he couldn’t train and that’s not too good for the Arsenal game, but we have other players who are available and that’s good for us. Hopefully it stays like this and we can give Daniel enough time so that when he is fit again, he can then become match fit in the next few days. There are a lot of games to play.”
On Milner, Klopp said, “With Millie we have to wait. It’s better than we all expected after the [Barcelona] game when we saw him walking out of the stadium on crutches – that’s not the best picture you want to see after a game.”
It’s not really good to laugh at others’ misfortunes but having two players out is good news for Arsenal who also have their own worries.
