Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is a big fan of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool
A feature of the 2016/2017 season has been opposition managers and players hailing the work down by Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
There seems little doubt that Liverpool are well in the mix for a top four place at the end of the season and thanks to their excellent attack, they could even win the Premier League.
On Sunday, Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw at Southampton. Jurgen Klopp’s side created some guilt-edged chances, but saw the likes of Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne squander presentable opportunities.
On Match of the Day, a remarkable statistic outlined why Liverpool’s attack may have failed at St Mary’s.
“This is maybe the best team I have ever played against”
Meanwhile, Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg has come out with some high praise for Liverpool.
Højbjerg told the Southampton website: “It’s not only that they move the ball quickly. They also have fast players, and with the ball they are very good one against one. I played in Germany against Bayern Munich and Dortmund, I played against Manchester City in the Champions League, but I must say this is maybe the best team I have ever played against.”
Højbjerg continued: “It’s unbelievable how they move, how they stand, how they work together – it’s like a symphony. We should be happy with the one point, but it’s not that I say this is not our level. We can come up here and we have something to say up here and we showed that today. As always, the best is to win, but against a fantastic team like Liverpool you have to realise that a point is a fantastic result.”
And, the former Bayern Munich midfielder concluded: “They have a fantastic team and I must say the tempo of the game was unbelievably high, but with the support of the fans, with the bravery of the team and the good spirit we had a solid performance and that’s what it’s all about.”
