Former Manchester City player Joey Barton has apologizes to Jurgen Klopp for his comments back in 2017.
Barton once labelled Liverpool manager as “a giant German cheerleader”, but now claims that he was wrong.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Barton said: “I don’t think Liverpool back in the day were anywhere near as strong as they are now with the fans and the belief.
“I’ve been critical of Jurgen Klopp, I didn’t feel they were learning lessons. But I think they are the most improved team and his is the most improved coach in the last three years.
“He has that, I dare say, Shankly feel to him. He has lifted the whole city and Liverpool really firmly believe.
“I live in the city and I’m just hoping Everton can get on the coattails and latch onto that energy to improve themselves.”
