Manchester City’s loss to Chelsea on Friday morning has sealed Liverpool’s long awaited maiden Premier League title, their lead now unassailable at the top of the table.
Reds fans across the world rejoiced as thirty years of heartbreak came to an end off the back of Jurgen Klopp’s dominant outfit.
Having also won the Champions League and Club World Cup in the past twelve months, Simon Hill has ranked the Reds as the finest side in the world at present.
“They’re not just the best side in England, but probably the best side in the world”, he told Box2Box.
“(Klopp’s) team play in a terrific manner, a great brand of football. It’s very attacking, very aggressive, they’ve just steamrolled teams all season really.”
Hill paid further homage to Klopp and his attitude towards the game, which has now delivered the crowning glory that had proved so elusive when he joined the club in 2015.
“The much quoted Gegenpress and the quick transition between defence and attack, using lighting speed…it’s the sort of football teams simply cannot live with. It utilises the greatest asset in the game, which is space and speed.”
Although a side without weak links or apparent areas for improvement, Hill expects Klopp to dip into the market to keep the team hungry.
“Liverpool set the template for that back in the 70’s and 80’s under Bob Paisley… they used to just buy one or two players every close season, keep the machine oiled. I’m pretty sure Klopp will use a similar formula.”
