Carragher pays Jurgen Klopp the ultimate compliment with recent comments

Jamie Carragher believes that the current Liverpool team is better than the side he played in with Steven Gerrard, Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres in 2009.

There is a debate among Liverpool fans over which Liverpool team is better; the current squad managed by Jurgen Klopp or the one that, in 2009, went so close to winning the Premier League under Rafa Benitez’s guidance.

Stevie G, Alonso and Mascherano in the engine room with a truly world class Torres up front has to be one of the best sides to not win anything in the Premier League’s history but the current Liverpool side isn’t too bad either.

Carragher, who was a part of that 2009 side, believes that the side Klopp has assembled is the best Liverpool team for the last 30 years.

Carra told This is Anfield: “I definitely think this team is the best we’ve had for over 30 years. I really do believe that.

“I think it’ll prove that this season, with Van Dijk being there a full season and a top-class goalkeeper coming in. I still think we lack a little something more in midfield, but hopefully [Naby] Keita will fill that void.

“This is better than any team I played in. I mean the one we played in 2009 was a top side and I think they’re certainly as good as that.”
