'Like meeting the Pope' - Jurgen Klopp on first sit down with Sir Alex Ferguson
"I'm absolutely delighted to get this wonderful trophy, it's really wonderful," Klopp told Sky Sports News. "I saw who won it before, some really big, big Liverpool names involved - not only Liverpool names - like Bill Shankly I think, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny [Dalglish] whose name seems to be all over the trophy.
"But the name on this is Sir Alex Feguson's and I know it's not 100 per cent appropriate as Liverpool manger but I admire him, not to say I love him.
He was the first British manager I met and we had breakfast together. I'm not sure if he remembers it but I remember it still because in this moment it was for me like meeting the pope if you want. It was absolutely great and from the first moment we really clicked.
"I wouldn't have thought one day I would be holding a trophy in my hands that was named after him."
