Peter Moore has offered an insider’s view into what working with Jurgen Klopp is like at Liverpool. Moore compared Klopp to Reds legend Bill Shankly and says he has united the players and fans together. Moore also revealed that Klopp is exactly as he seems at face value – a big personality who is able to motivate his players.
Peter Moore said: “There is no facade with Jurgen. There is no show for the cameras. He is a massive personality and a great motivator of men. We often reflect on the Bill Shankly era. The phrase he used was ‘I was made for Liverpool and Liverpool was made for me’. The same could be said of Jurgen. I think he is a Scouser at heart. He has all the attributes; caring for people, warm personality, he is charismatic and incredibly articulate. He understands the values of the club, what it means to the fans and how important they are collectively. Shankly called it The Holy Trinity – managers, players, fans. Jurgen recognises it. There is a psychological bond between manager and fans. We have had lots of that at Liverpool over the decades but the closest example is what Shankly and Jurgen Klopp have done.”
Moore departed Anfield this summer after a successful three-and-a-half years as CEO, which saw the Reds crowned Premier League and European champions.
