Since arriving at Anfield in October 2015, Klopp has been able to end Liverpool’s top flight title drought and add another Champions League to their trophy cabinet.
However, Liverpool’s arch rivals Manchester United have struggled to find success in the Premier League and in the Champions League since legendary manager Ferguson left the club in the summer of 2013.
Red Devils legend Ince can see a bit of Ferguson in Reds boss Klopp, as his passion for the game is comparable to what the Scotsman displayed during his spell in management.
Ince explained that Ferguson, along with other managers of his era, were always pushing their charges hard on the touchline, a trait that he is also seeing in Klopp when he goes about his business during games.
“I think he [Klopp] is so passionate”, Ince told Genting Casino.
“I think when you come and look – and just going back to managers, I think when I look back to Fergie’s days, all those old school managers, they used to like – on the touchline they used to berate you, getting you up for it, slaughtering you if you weren’t doing the right things, really had that passion about them.
“And I see that with Klopp.”
Klopp is gearing up to take Liverpool to Old Trafford on Sunday for a Premier League clash and Ferguson, a regular in the stands could once again be among the spectators.
