Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson sends hilarious message to Jurgen Klopp after winning the LMA Manager of the Year award
Legendary former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had a hilarious message for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp upon awarding him with the LMA Manager of the Year award.
Klopp has masterminded an incredible season at Anfield which saw the Reds contend for an unprecedented quadruple.
Liverpool claimed the Carabao Cup in February with a penalty shootout victory over Chelsea.
They followed that up with an FA Cup win over the Blues once again on penalties on May 14.
Klopp’s men took Manchester City to the final day of the season in one of the most closely-fought title races in Premier League history, losing out by a mere point.
He couldn’t go without showing his comedic disappointment in doing so given the huge rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United.Ferguson said whilst passing the award over (via Liverpool Echo):
“This is agony, absolute agony!”
Ferguson had previously told Klopp to go to a club that has history and he has now taken those suggestions back in hindsight, saying:
“I should have told him to go to Scunthorpe United,” joked the Scotsman.

Klopp jokingly replied with regard to Ferguson’s Scottish accent:
“I couldn’t understand anything he [Ferguson] said… I’ve improved through working with Robbo and Kenny.”
