The former Manchester United striker admitted he admires Jurgen Klopp but insists he made a mistake joining Liverpool.

"Jurgen is a manager every player would love playing for", Rooney told Bild.

"You can see how much fun his players have playing under him. I've met him a couple of times, he's a great person", said the DC United captain.

"His only mistake is that he works for LFC and is successful there". In fact, it's evident that he holds Klopp in very high regard.

Jurgen Klopp is hoping that Simon Mignolet stays at Liverpool FC beyond the summer transfer window.

"This guy really has it".

Indeed, Mignolet was limited to just two appearances in the cup competitions for Liverpool FC last season as Klopp chose Alisson as his number one between the posts.

The Reds also finished second in a historic Premier League campaign, as Liverpool's 97 points were not enough to eclipse Manchester City's 98 atop the league. Finishing runners up to Real Madrid in 2018 and beating Spurs for their sixth European title in 2019.

Following are the 3 problems that Liverpool and Klopp will need to tackle immediately before the start of the new EPL season next month.

The 52-year-old German coach left Borussia Dortmund in 2015 to undertake the project of managing at Anfield.

Rooney is no stranger to success himself.

Rooney won 16 trophies during his spell in Manchester, including five Premier League titles, before returning to Goodison Park in 2017.

He may have played for both Man United and Everton, but Rooney knows a top manager when he sees one.

Like with many ex United players there's no doubt that the teams current plight will be hurting him, but seeing their rivals doing so well will be adding to the pain.
