Their first choice striker was Benteke. Man Utd finished 2nd a year before ETH joined. I'm not sure how that means anything.Oh come on. It's Liverpool. They had won 5 CL titles already and had finished 2nd in the league a year and a half before Klopp joined.
I dislike Klopp intensely. I also don't think he's the greatest manager if all time,but I think the idea of putting Pep in that bracket is ridiculous when he hasnt even proven he can make a struggling team succesful. He's managed teams where it's been made as easy as possible for him and where the competitionhas already been left behind before he's joined. One where its been conclusively proven they cheated, another where there was a VERY big cloud over them in terms of whether they cheated.
There's a reason why City win the treble and it gets less attention thwn anyone else winning 1 trophy
