Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has revealed how impressed he has been by the impact that Jurgen Klopp has made at the club.
Speaking to Sky Sports after watching the German tactician’s side secure a 6-1 win over Southampton in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night, Redknapp has been left amazed by how much confidence the players are playing with now.
Liverpool have lost just one game in 11 under the former Dortmund boss, and that has resulted in them being in a position to compete on numerous fronts this season.
While the Reds are just four points adrift of the Premier League top four, they have advanced to the knockout stages of the Europa League and will hope to extend their run in the League Cup when they face Stoke City in the semi-finals.
Although his point was more to do with the performances, Redknapp has been left impressed with the lift that Klopp has given Liverpool as a whole.
“At the moment there’s no limit to what Liverpool can do. I have been blown away by what he has achieved so far. They have been absolutely brilliant to watch,” Redknapp said, as reported by Sky Sports.
“The whole club is buzzing, he seems to have a magic wand, and he’s come in and seems to have sprinkled magic dust on everyone, because they all look like completely different players.”
Klopp will be further boosted by the fact that the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson have returned from injury this week, thus giving him more options to continue to rotate and keep his players fresh.
While there is still a long way to go in the season, Redknapp is arguably right to be so enthused about what he is seeing from his former club, and he will hope to see that continue when Klopp’s men travel to St James’ Park on Sunday evening to take on Newcastle United.
