New Liverpool signing, Loris Karius has named Jurgen Klopp as one of the best managers in the world.
The German goalie joined the EPL club for a fee of £4.7 million, signing a five-year deal at Anfield.
Klopp is renowned for taking a keen interest in developing youth and Karius says that played in a big role in his decision to part ways with Mainz.
“He was a big factor because he is one of the best coaches in the world and has shown how well he brings young players forward,” he told Sport Bild.
“There is also the tradition of the club, the atmosphere, which is not so common in the world.
“Of course, I’m financially improved with such a transfer. All in all, it was the perfect total package.”
Karius, who was formerly on Manchester City’s books between 2009 and 2011, has represented Germany at every youth level from Under-16 to Under-21 level.
And the 22-year-old is targeting breaking into the senior setup through his performances for Liverpool in the future.
“I just have to cause a stir and do my job very well in Liverpool,” Karius added.
“If I succeed, I certainly hope that at some point the call from Low comes.”
