Top figures in German football including national coach Joachim Loew have heaped praise on Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for ending the Anfield club’s 30-year title drought.
“They’ve been impressively consistent and absolutely deserve to be champions. You can see how much it means to him just from his emotional reaction. I take my hat off for Jurgen.”
“What he’s done there deserves recognition,” Loew said in a statement issued by the German federation (DFB) on Friday.
Liverpool’s first title in the Premier League era was confirmed Thursday when previous champions Manchester City lost 2-1 at Chelsea.
The domestic honour follows Klopp’s Champions League victory in 2019 with Liverpool and two Bundesligas for Borussia Dortmund.
