Former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has described the appointment of Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool coach as a “jackpot”.

“Outstanding club that hit the jackpot hiring Klopp and giving him the right players and time to build something very special.” Fabregas wrote on twitter during a Q&A session.

Indeed, it is not hard to understand why former Spain national team star chose this word. 

Klopp, who took charge of the Merseyside club during the 2015/16 season, has built one of the best teams in the world. Liverpool have won the Champions League, also featuring in two other European finals. Before the start of the 2019/20 campaign, Klopp added the UEFA Supercup to the trophy list, while in midseason Liverpool went to Qatar to win the Club World Cup. 

And now, Reds are close to their first top flight title in 30 years. Liverpool need 6 points to secure the title, that will end their drought.
