Klopp ideal for Reds - Purslow

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can admits Juventus interest was 'an honour' as transfer rumours mount

United have started off the season in sparkling form and now sit second place in the league, level with rivals Manchester City on 22 points after just seven games.

Phil Jones who has enjoyed a superb start to the season cementing his place alongside Eric Bailly at the heart of the defence also picked up a knock during the Palace match and is set to miss the trip to Liverpool opening the door for the likes of Victor Lindelof who has struggled since his arrival from Benfica and Chris Smalling. "He is the right man for the job and that's going to take five years, not two years".

Purslow added on Liverpool having to compete with big spenders such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City: "There are revenue differences between Manchester United and Liverpool".

"They have had the upper hand against all of the top teams because of the nature of the way those games are played".

However, reports last month suggested that Bayern were still interested in re-signing the player and were willing to do battle with Liverpool, Juventus, Inter Milan and potentially even Manchester United.

"If you go head-to-head with Liverpool rather than sitting in deep and defending in numbers to stop [Sadio] Mane, [Mohamed] Salah, [Roberto] Firmino, you will come a cropper".

'If they go all-out attack against Liverpool, which they are under pressure do because they are Man United and they are top of the league, then I think Liverpool will win'. Star forward Sadio Mane has been ruled out after suffering an injury during the worldwide break.

Yet the medical bulletin that Klopp received on Sadio Mané's fitness following his return to Melwood from global duty with Senegal is arguably the most damaging of...

However, with Can falling out of contract next summer, Juve are once again expected to renew efforts to sign the player when the transfer window opens again in January.
