‘A power shift’ Liverpool are now five years ahead of Man United

    Klopp has transformed Liverpool to be that club everyone wants to join, with the Merseyside club now way ahead of Man United, believes Dietar Hamann.

    Since taking over as manager in October 2015, Jurgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool to one of the best sides in the world.

    Relentless consistency in attacking display has seen the Reds pick up a Champions League trophy and just recently their first league title in 30 years.

    Before Klopp came to Anfield, Manchester United were the darling side of English football, with Manchester City only just starting to rise as a force in the country.

    Liverpool’s first Premier League crown puts them 12 behind United in the recent history of English football, but in actual fact, they are now just one away from equalling the Red Devils’ mark of 20 domestic triumphs overall.

    United haven’t picked up the famous trophy since 2013 and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently in the middle of the rebuilding job at Old Trafford.

    Hamann believes there has been a power shift at the top of English football, with Liverpool now the biggest draw in the Premier League under Klopp.

    The ex-Reds midfielder told The Mirror: “When I was a player, the club everyone wanted to join was Manchester United. You knew that signing for United guaranteed you winners’ medals.

    “They were the biggest club, the club that everyone inside and outside England spoke about.

    “Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, United have suffered on the pitch. And with perfect timing, Jurgen Klopp has come in and made Liverpool the club everyone wants to join.

    “In that respect, he has knocked United off their perch.”

    Hamann also had his say on whether Liverpool would dominate the Premier League for long like United once did.

    “I am not sure Liverpool will dominate the Premier League like United did – because Manchester City and Pep Guardiola will have something to say about that.

    “But Liverpool are five years ahead of United – and London’s big clubs are even further behind.

    “Klopp has four years left on his contract – and by the time that is up he will want to get past United’s 20 titles and also win the Champions League again.”
