Jurgen Klopp has praised Manchester City player David Silva as one of his favourite players in the Premier League.

Klopp impressed as a pundit on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, discussing the importance of Liverpool’s full-backs, and his side’s chances of winning the title.

The German was also asked of who his favourite non-Liverpool players in the Premier League were, and he revealed his admiration for City’s Silva.

“I like David Silva,” he said. “He is a wonderful player, he’s everywhere, he’s so skilled and he has a wonderful attitude.

“Even though I haven’t heard his name too often during Manchester City’s wonderful start to the season, I’m pretty sure he has a role and I like his style of play,” he said.

“I am not too interested in the players of other teams. They are all dangerous if you allow them to be.”

Klopp also explained his love of the Kop, saying: “We have a new stand in Liverpool, which is 22,000 people sitting, which I have never seen.

“But the Kop created the best half hour that I’ve had in football. I don’t have to say it was the last half hour against Dortmund; the atmosphere in the stadium was the best I’ve ever had – hopefully not the best I will ever have but it was outstanding.

“I don’t want to compare. I’m a lucky guy who has had two wonderful clubs and now I can work here. The Kop is an impressive place and I love to play in front of them.”
