Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Fearful Of “One Of The Best On The Planet” Ahead Of Arsenal Clash

Jurgen Klopp has reason to worry ahead of the Arsenal clash
Jurgen Klopp has reason to worry ahead of the Arsenal clash

Liverpool gaffer Jurgen Klopp is more than familiar with a couple of faces in the Arsenal side today as he has managed them in the past. Both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were star players in Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund side who wowed Europe with their impressive attacking displays.

Now Klopp, ahead of Liverpool’s trip to The Emirates this afternoon, Klopp has heaped the praise on Aubameyang, who he signed for Dortmund from Saint-Etienne. Aubameyang has taken to life in the Premier League like a duck to water and is currently the joint top scorer in the division, with seven goals in total.

Klopp said: "Auba, he's the biggest threat: speed and goal threat, it’s unbelievable.

"He’s one of the best players for the counter-attack that you can find on this planet because of the timing of the runs and the really outstanding finishing record in situations like that.

"When we scouted him at Saint-Etienne he played more from the wing and he played more for me at Dortmund on the wing as well because for us it was not clear how he could keep the ball up front with his back to the opponent.

"But then he ended up doing that really well as well. He can play both positions, from the wing or as a single striker or together with another striker.

"This makes him a very good player to be honest."

The German boss will be hoping his Liverpool side, who have conceded just four league goals this season, can keep out the Gabonese striker when the sides meet in the 5.30pm kick off. It promises to be a cracker!
