Gerard Pique praises Klopp’s system, Liverpool attacking trio
Spain and Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has praised Liverpool’s attacking trio, saying that Klopp’s side will challenge Manchester City for the title.
Pique has started the season strong with Barcelona, winning the Spanish Super Cup as well as helping his side keep two clean sheets in their opening two league games.
The 31-year-old has been a key part of the Barcelona team since joining them in 2008. His role with the Catalan Giants is not to be underestimated and his spell there has been kind to him.
He netted seven La Liga titles, three Champions Leagues, and multiple Copa Del Reys, Super Cups, and Club World Cup. His international career matches his club career, with a World Cup title in 2010 and a European title in 2012.
The Spaniard has hailed Premier League side Liverpool and their attacking trio, saying the Reds have a big chance of winning the league title.
“I think Jurgen Klopp is doing a great job at Liverpool. The style of play is the opposite of (Pep) Guardiola,” Pique told Daily Star.
“They like to counter-attack and have very quick players up front who score goals – like Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
“It will be a challenge for (Man) City as Liverpool have a great team and I think it will be quite exciting,” he added.
Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League table with three wins and zero goals conceded, a feat no other team has been able to sustain three weeks into the season.
Mohamed Salah has contributed to four goals in his first three games of the season, as he is aiming to to replicate last season’s historic performances.
