Danny Mills has questioned whether Jurgen Klopp has achieved enough as Liverpool manager. 

The German lifted his first trophy at Anfield last season when he guided the Reds to the Champions League, but Mills is unsure if that’s an adequate output of success.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “Four years, one trophy, is that enough?

“If Liverpool were going to go to the end of this season and only still have one trophy at the end of that, would it be enough?”


Surely this is some kind of joke from Mills? His argument might be fair enough if Klopp has been treading water for the past four years, but he has consistently improved this Liverpool side, as well as guiding them to several finals along the way. So far this term he has averred a points per game of 2.54 in all competitions, as per Transfermarkt, compared to 1.65 in 2015/16. This is a team getting better all the time, and to reach 97 points and still not lift a title last season is really no reflection on how good Klopp or his side are. Mills needs to reassess what he is saying, because aside from everything Klopp has already achieved, he is also dearly, dearly loved on Merseyside. Questioning him is not a great idea, and given what he has done for the club, you can understand why?
