Gerrard: Klopp deserves a statue while he is still manager of Liverpool 

The value of statues have been in the news of late and Steven Gerrard has added his voice to the debate albeit in a positive sense.

The Liverpool legend and current Rangers manager believes that Jürgen Klopp has currently done enough to stand among the greats of the club.

Klopp has been a transformative figure since his arrival on Merseyside in October 2015, steadily turning around a club who were suffering a deep malaise into a major European powerhouse breaking many records along the way.

The Mirror (via The Athletic) reported Gerrard as saying:

“When you look at the scale of the job he’s done, for sure he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as those iconic managers.

“What you need to take into consideration is that when Jurgen took over Liverpool they weren’t close to being the best team in the country, they weren’t even in the top four.

“To come to Liverpool when he did, get to the amount of finals that he has, deliver the sixth European Cup and then deliver the first league title after 30 years…For me, someone like Jurgen should be rewarded now.

While Gerrard believes the German is far too modest to accept the honour, he certainly believes he is worthy.

"Knowing Jurgen, he won’t want to be put in that bracket.

 

“I know what he’s like, he’s humble and respectful.

"It seems like in football we often wait until people get older before their achievements are fully recognised.

“But I know the owners of Liverpool won’t let that happen.

 

"When Jurgen delivers the league they should already be starting work on a statue of him.”

It certainly is a interesting debate whether to immortalise the manager in bronze at this present time but whenever the time is, Jurgen will stand proudly among the iconic figures of this great club.

It should happen but when he has left. He would fucking hate that being there while he is still manager and to be honest it would invite ridicule/attention that he and we don't want. 

 

When he leaves build a big mechanical statue that just towers over the stadium and faces towards Goodison and waves with his big smiling beautiful grin.

Klopp is the kind of bloke who'd rather have a painting/banner on one of the walls within the stadium depicting him and all the players from the squad. He is the bloke who hit the nail on the head when questioned about wealth/social side of life, 'If I'm doing well, then I want everybody to do well.' Class act is our, Jürgen.

He really is a Shankly for our generation. Jammy kids these days when Grandad goes to put a Shankly documentary on. "Its ok Grandad, thanks and all that but we've got our own now"

Yeah, with Klopp it is also not a show because he's managing a club steeped in working men's traditions, he was the same at Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund. Both working men's clubs run similar to our own.

Not while he's still the manager. He needs to leave a lasting legacy a la Shanks, Sir Bob and The King before any thought about erecting a statue in his honour. Agree that Kenny needs a statue first, though hopefully that is a long long way off because the ones who have a statue had already passed away!

For the time being, a fucking big flag and a fucking good song for him is more pressing.

Bollocks. 3 points and a packet of B&H is all that man wants.

Evertonians might get up a posse and throw it in the River Mersey if it became reality-  because he was evil to dare to try and win the tile under COVID-19 or some other fucking demented shite

 

oh yeah. and Gerrard deserves his own statue too

Smart move, we could probably get it sponsored by Gola.

Always said scousers were streets ahead in 'the way you carry your bag' stakes. It's fashionable almost 50 years later.

One for Kenny first, I think. And it'd have to be that iconic one of him on the pitch looking over his shoulder.


Has to be the two arms in the air at Chelsea for me. 
 

More iconic and also has the added bonus of him always touching the this is Anfield sign with both hands too.
