“Outstanding player”: Jurgen Klopp Croons Accolades For Bruno Fernandes Ahead Of Manchester United Showdown: The Liverpool boss was extremely expansive in his plaudits for the midfielder
Where Liverpool have waned in form, Manchester United have picked up the speed. With Manchester United unbeaten in their last five matches, the club ended up displacing Liverpool from top spot after defeating Burnley 1-0 earlier in the week.
Its what makes this weekend’s matchup between Liverpool and Manchester United a humdinger of an event. With this deciding which club occupies top spot at the end of the 90 minutes, it’s a fixture which has a cracker written all over it.
Jurgen Klopp Croons Accolades For Bruno Fernandes
The focal point of his side’s invigoration, Bruno Fernandes is envisaged to play a deciding role in the impending outing as well. And Klopp was quick to emote towards the midfielder’s influence on his side.
Klopp explained: “Outstanding player. We played Sporting in USA and that game you could see, wow.
“A difference maker and that is what he shows now. An influential player now.
“Goal involvements important but he is the link-up player and is a leader too. A good signing for Utd.”
Klopp was also appreciative of the work Marcus Rashford is doing to provide children with hearty and nutrient rich meals.
Klopp said: “I said it before, exceptional. He has some honours, absolutely right.
“A little shame he has to do this work. He has done it because he had the same situation when he was a kid.
“Just great to see him never forgetting his roots. Exceptional.”
Klopp Provides Injury Update On Joel Matip
“Joel is close but does it make sense now to throw him in with one or two sessions he didn’t do yet?
“Today or tomorrow we haven’t done yet,” Klopp said.
We have to see. It’s not decided yet – why should we?”
“He is not ready,” Klopp said meanwhile as he confirmed Keita was going to be ruled out with an injury yet again.
