Liverpool fans were left frustrated with Gary Neville comparing Jurgen Klopp’s first 3 years with the Reds to Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s reign at Manchester United on Monday Night Football.
The opening segment of the Sky Sports programme measured both the manager’s achievement after 99 games in the Premier League, with the net spend figure towards the end sticking out heavily against the Norwegian’s favour.
Here’s the reaction on Twitter –
“Klopp did it with a £30m profit and Ole has a net spend £314m – the big thing is what happens next.”@GNev2 compares Jurgen Klopp’s first 99 games at #LFC to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first 99 games at #MUFC…— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) August 23, 2021

“Come on now”
If Jose Mourinho’s greatest acheivement was finishing second with that Man United team, Ole’s greatest achievement is convincing Britain’s most famous pundit that he can be judged alongside Jurgen Klopp.— The Tactical Times (@Tactical_Times) August 23, 2021

“Put some respect Jurgen Klopp’s name”
Difference is that Ole came in the job with a CL team that finished runners up competing with £314m net spend, while Klopp came in with a EL team with a sell to buy policy. We are not alike.— Samue (@SamueILFC) August 23, 2021

Chelsea fans chip in
I’m crying Ole is a chequebook manager but without the winning part https://t.co/7gccTlIjxs— ⭐️⭐️ (@OlIyCFC) August 23, 2021
Even Man Utd fans chip in
All that matters is spend and Kloop had no where near the money Ole has available!!— Amit Mavar (@amit_mavar) August 23, 2021
Stop with this comparison, Klopp had a plan, a playing style and sad to say a top manager give him this United team and he wins trophies. We have Ole who is useless..
“Protecting his mate”
Gary Neville is just protecting his mate.— Yudish (@kurtznirvanaz) August 23, 2021
Klopp won the league by turning stones to gems.
Ole has gems and still cannot figure out a style after 2 years.
“Klopp took over a side that had been twatted 6-1 by Stoke city”
Solskjaer took over a squad that had finished 2nd the previous season. Klopp took over on that had been twatted 6-1 by Stoke city 😂 https://t.co/F0hfn0TAGe— Mark Riley (@Markriley1992) August 23, 2021
Don’t even like Liverpool but…
The situations are not even remotely close.— Michael (@TFWriter) August 23, 2021
Klopp turned Liverpool from nobodies into champions.
Solskjaer has spent a lot of money on a better squad to achieve nothing – yet.
