Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool would struggle to find a better manager if he was to be sacked by the Anfield club.

The former Borussia Dortmund head coach recently celebrated his second anniversary on Merseyside, with the side enduring a difficult run in which they have won just once in seven matches in all competitions.

But Klopp, whose side are seven points off the top of the Premier League, is adamant that there is still plenty of work to be done and remains confident he is the man to take Liverpool forward.

"We are not the biggest difference from the top teams right now, even if it looks - from the points - a little bit different," he told a pre-match news conference ahead of facing Manchester United.

"If I was to come in today as a new manager - this would be the situation - and everyone would give me time now to do the next step, that would be perfect.

"Unfortunately, if they sack me now, I don't think there are a lot of managers who would do the job better than I do. I don't think I'm perfect, but it's quite difficult to find better options.


"I still think that as long as 98 per cent of Liverpudlians think we are the right way, we will succeed. It's difficult. The good old times, when one team dominated the league for 20 years, will not come back."

He added: "I feel we are in the middle of everything. We are not at the start, but there's still a long way to go. I knew it before, so I'm not surprised about this."
