Huge respect’: 31-year-old PL player now admits he really looks up to ‘breath-taking’ Liverpool man

 

 

Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross has admitted that he really looks up to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

 

Gross was asked about the prospect of playing under Klopp by German outlet Sport1. Although he admitted that it was an unlikely outcome, he did profess that he has ‘huge respect’ for the Liverpool man.

 

I have huge respect for Jurgen Klopp. He’s a coach everyone looks up to,” said Gross. “What he does in his clubs is breath-taking. But I’m realistic about that too. I don’t think that’s going to happen.”

Liverpool will still be looking for reinforcements for their midfield over the coming transfer windows. If Gross continues his exemplary form for Brighton, then you never know.huge respect for the Liverpool man

Gross has been very underrated since joining Brighton from Ingolstadt five years ago. Now thirty-one, it looks as though taking that next step in his career may have just passed him by.

But judging by his displays for Brighton this season, he could perhaps still play at a higher level.

The German has three goals and two assists in six Premier League games this season. He’s been a big part of why the Seagulls currently find themselves fourth in the table.

As Manchester United found on the opening weekend of the season though, that isn’t always easy. The midfielder silenced Old Trafford with two nicely taken goals to hand his team a 2-1 win.

As a fellow German in the Premier League, Klopp will no doubt be very aware of Gross’ talents and form.

Hopefully the player isn’t given too much opportunity to impress the coach when he travels to Anfield on 1st October.
