Agent: Sterling & Klopp Would Have Been Great Together

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling and former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp would have made a great team if they were at Liverpool together, according to the player’s agent.

Sterling: Truth Behind My City Move

Jurgen Klopp took charge of his first Liverpool game last weekend against Tottenham, the same day as Sterling went onto score a hat-trick for his new club.

Sterling’s agent, Aidy Ward feels that Klopp probably would have been the perfect manager for his client, if he was still at the Merseyside club.

“The new Liverpool manager probably would have been a great fit for Raheem – passionate, disciplined in the right way, new ideas, not afraid of trying new things. He’ll do great at Liverpool,” Ward told the Daily Mail.

“Would Raheem under Klopp have been a good scenario? Yes, 100%, definitely, mainly because of the person Klopp is – the passion, the drive, the emotion, wanting to achieve.

“He’s going to get the best out of those players. It could have been a dream come true.”

Sterling’s departure from Anfield was blamed heavily on Ward and the players agent took the time to explain his side of the failed negotiations with Liverpool.

“I became the bad guy, that’s how I was portrayed. It started from the PR behind Liverpool. There is no issue with the fans there, they don’t know the full story, and there are lots of good people at Liverpool," he added. 

“I have no issue with anyone but Rodgers: he had a massive job with massive funds. How did he do? Good coach, but as a manager I didn’t like certain things about how he dealt with Raheem.”
