Jurgen Klopp pays tribute to late Gerard Houllier

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp paid his own tribute after the death of one of his predecessors. Asked what memories he had of Houllier, the Reds boss replied: “Only the best. I met him a few times, texted a lot. He was a very supportive man, a great coach and an even better human. “Very warm personality and a big miss for LFC. A true legend of this club. “He would have loved to see our new training ground as you know he was influential in the rebuild and modernising of Melwood. “During construction work here we were in contact. He would have loved to have seen it. Tomorrow I am sure our fans will pay tribute (in the top-of-the-table Premier League match against Tottenham).”
