Jurgen Klopp, head coach of German vice-champion Liverpool of England, spoke about the Argentina-France World Cup final and Argentina captain Lionel Messi.
Jurgen Klopp describes Lionel Messi as “the greatest player of his generation”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has waxed poetic about Argentina captain Lionel Messi after being impressed by his performances at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The German also shared his thoughts on Emiliano Martinez’s contentious celebrations.
Argentina won its first FIFA World Cup in 36 years on December 18 in Qatar, led by Lionel Messi. La Albiceleste won the title on penalties after defeating a strong French team that included Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konate.
Argentina’s victory in the Middle East also saw Messi win the trophy that had eluded him for the majority of his career. He carried the majority of the load for Lionel Scaloni’s team, scoring seven goals in as many games.
In addition, the 35-year-old talisman assisted three times for his teammates during the tournament. His efforts for Argentina earned him the Golden Ball at the end of the competition.
With the dust still settling, Klopp has named Messi the greatest player he has ever seen. The Liverpool manager also praised the forward for continuing to perform well despite being in his mid-30s.
The Voice quoted him as saying: “Lionel Messi, the greatest footballer of my lifetime, playing football at this age should give us all an idea of how long footballers can perform at the highest level. We must not close the books too soon. It was a pleasure to watch him.”
