Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has opened up on why he rejected the chance to manage Manchester United after David Moyes was sacked from the club.

Klopp says he is able to handle the pressure and take the blame for his players when needed.

He's been at a top club before, been an worldwide, and Klopp's thought he can improve him.

"You saw it, everybody saw it, seems obvious: "Marcelo, what an offensive player, but. he can't defend", Klopp said to The Mirror.

He said: "I think this one is better".

'I had talks with other clubs and they didn't sound like a football club.

"I'm sure there will be new players coming in the summer as well, which they will be coming into a very good group of players, and hopefully they can strengthen us to win trophies".

Liverpool have played some sensational football this season and are top scorers in the Champions League with 40 goals.

"When you look at how much money they'll make from the Champions League this season - I've seen figures of £70m being mentioned - you wonder". But it's really the thing that players need help in these moments, and they need a clear opinion. I've enjoyed the game.

"You saw in Rome when we were celebrating with the fans, that was an wonderful feeling and moment because of how the connection between the players, the club, the fans is massive really, and it's a big part of Liverpool".

"I want to pay great credit obviously to Jurgen because he's our leader but also to sporting director Michael Edwards, Dave Fallows and Barry Hunter", Werner added. These players have been doing it every week and creating countless chances per game.

Only last week Woodward told investors that the playing side of United is largely disconnected from the earnings potential of the club, and we all know that Woodward desires big-money, big-name signings to attract sponsors.

And having a prominent place in the club's glorious annals is a prospect that excites the captain.

"All the teams said it: against Juve, Real were lucky, against Bayern, they were lucky, but they are the third time in a row in the final, the fourth time in five years, so what does that say?"
