Former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes believes Jurgen Klopp’s current Liverpool side are not as good as the team managed by former Reds boss Rafa Benitez.
Klopp’s Liverpool are currently riding high on top of the Premier League after winning their opening six games of the season and are widely regarded as the team most likely to challenge reigning Champions Manchester City this season.
However, when asked if he thinks Klopp’s side are better than Rafa’s Reds the Scotsman said:
“No, I don’t think so.” Moyes told Sky Sports Goals on Sunday.
“I think they’ve got a really good team, but you look back at teams over the years at Liverpool and they had great teams, when it was Alonso, Mascherano, Gerrard and Torres up front.
“This is a good Liverpool team as well – I don’t know if it’s quite as good as that team at that time. They’re playing a good style, with forward players who are exceptional, and because of that I think they’re a real threat.”
