United then opted for Louis van Gaal instead before the German took charge at Anfield a year later.

Jurgen Klopp has described the feeling of managing Liverpool as a "f*cking sensation" as the Reds gear up to face Real Madrid in the Champions League on Saturday.

When quizzed on United's offer, he told The Mirror of Liverpool: "I love the history".

"Of course [I'm aware of them], I am still finishing my season strong with Dortmund", Pulisic told ESPN.

Well, while he didn't specifically mention Manchester United, you only have to take a look from Liverpool to Manchester for 0.0000000000000000001 seconds to realise that it's an accurate summary of Ed Woodward's strategy.

"It was really hard".

"I can take the pressure, I really can take it".

"When I passed my A-levels, the head of the school said in front of all of the other students: 'I hope you do something in football otherwise I'm not optimistic for you!'"

"I don't think there's many players, maybe none, who he hasn't worked with and improved".

The Egypt global has repeatedly been linked with a move to Real Madrid, who they face in the Champions League final on Saturday.

"I'm just looking forward to having a good break this summer".

"I had talks with other clubs and they didn't sound like a football club".

"A little thing. Liverpool is a world class brand, big, big, big, but in Melwood it is still a family, nothing else, and you can go in and feel that".

Klopp is slowly and steadily bringing one of Europe's biggest clubs back to where it belongs - at the pinnacle of European football. It sounded like marketing, image, you need to sign this, you need to sign that.

"I was not ready, I thought it made sense that I had one year off".

"It's all part of football, but it can not be the number one, two, three or four priority".

"First of all please try to improve the game we play".

'And that's what I am good in. It wasn't I was saying, "boys, never mind it can happen, forget about it".

Liverpool have had British players such as Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andy Robertson all playing pivotal roles in their journey to the Champions League final.
