Jurgen Klopp: This is why Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a legend of the game


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener at the Emirates.

The German says the Frenchman established himself as a legend of the game and at Arsenal having brought success and trophies to the club.

Klopp also explained that he is not concerned about Arsenal's problems in defence as he is fully focused on his team and on taking all three points from a very tricky fixture.

"He's a legend. That's how it is," he told Liverpool's official website.

"Becoming an Arsenal legend is not the most easy job in the world. I am pretty sure they've had a pre-season that they're fine with.

"They've had a few injury problems, but we should not think too much about them. They will still be active in the transfer market. I read today in the newspaper that Arsene said he will work as long as he is physically able to.

"That's one plan for life! It shows how big his love is for the game and for the work he is doing. He is very experienced and a very good manager, so if we win it will not be because of him!"
