Is Klopp Interested?
“If he had not played for Manchester United before, then we might have considered him,” Klopp told Sportbladet, before suggesting the amount of running required to play up top for his side would maybe be a little too much. “No, but I’m not even sure he wanted to play here. We’re a pretty intense team,” Klopp joked…
“With that said, I couldn’t have had more respect for Zlatan. I love his whole career, love his efforts, love his confidence.” – He added. “While it may not always be right, it is entertaining anyway. He’s a fantastic character and I really hope he doesn’t stop playing football. The world will miss him too much.”
