Jurgen Klopp has built the “perfect machine” at Liverpool, according to Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Everton held their city rivals to a 0-0 draw in their first game of the Premier League restart, but the Reds’ 19th top-flight title – and first for 30 years – was confirmed on Thursday after second-placed Manchester City lost 2-1 at Chelsea.
Ancelotti says he has nothing but admiration for Liverpool’s achievements under Klopp, with Liverpool also having won the FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup and the Champions League during the German’s time at Anfield.
“I have a great relationship with [Jurgen] Klopp,” Ancelotti told Sky in Italy. “We already met last week when everything was pretty much already decided, I already congratulated him even before this week’s events.
“But really, Klopp is the architect behind the success of this team, not only in the Premier League – but also for what he managed to do during these five years since his arrival.
“With a lot of patience, he was able to build a perfect machine.”
