Eckhard Krautzun has stated that Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp was very interested in managing Manchester United.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager joined Liverpool in 2015 and his addition to the Anfield team was hailed.
But Krautzun , who was replaced at Mainz by Klopp says the German tactician was always interested in managing at Old Trafford.
He told TheSetPieces on the Premier League aspirations of a man considered to be one of the finest bosses in the business: “It would be his dream to go to England one day and his favourite club would be [Manchester] United. That’s what he said.”
“After three or four months not working, I knew that he wanted to be in action again…when the offer came from Liverpool [that October] , I knew he would not hesitate because he wanted to get into a top club in England,” said Krautzun.
He added: “The emotions in the stadium in Liverpool and the enthusiasm of the fans, the temperament there – that fits Klopp.
“I was not surprised that the spectators liked him right away. His emotions, the way he coaches the team, the way he jumps around, the way he shows his desire to win, that fits the club.
“The fans are little more different to Man Utd. Man Utd is more quiet, the fans love their team too but there is more emotion and more passion I think in Liverpool. And Kloppo I think is a passionate, very temperamental man. That club fits him.”
