Klopp names Benitez as ‘one of the best in the world’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that Rafael Benitez is one of the best managers in the world.

Benitez takes his Newcastle United team to his former home on Saturday teatime, knowing that avoiding defeat will be mightily difficult.

Newcastle are battling against relegation this season, but Klopp does not believe that reflects badly on Benitez at all.

Perhaps Klopp was playing to the masses slightly, but it was nice to hear him being so vocal about his admiration for his opposite number.

“Rafa Benitez is one of the best managers in the world,” said Klopp.

“You all know how he can organise a team to make life difficult. Newcastle are on a really good run.

“They’re really organised and have a specific way to play and make it as difficult as possible for the other team. We have to make sure we can defend and cause them problems.”
