Jurgen Klopp has been receiving huge credit after celebrating his four-year anniversary at Liverpool this week.
The German has transformed the club since arriving in October 2015, having masterminded Champions League glory last season, and hopefully, a Premier League title win this time around.
Someone who has, bizarrely, suggested Klopp isn’t necessarily doing a great job is Danny Mills, who spoke on talkSPORT about just one trophy for the 52-year-old to date:
"4 years. 1 trophy. Is that enough?" ?
"Almost 5 seasons, and 1 trophy. where does that put Klopp amongst the #LFC greats?" ?

Needless to say, a number of Liverpool supporters reacted to Mills’ strange assessment, putting him in his place.
Danny Mills. Mediocre player. Even worse as a pundit.

Correction: 4 years; back to back Champions League finals, 1UCL, 1 Super Cup, 97pts in league.
Yes, only TWO trophies, but has built a team to truly rival City at the top season after season. And possibly best man manager in the business. Love of/for team and fans underrated

It's not enough, that's why he won 2

That this man gets paid to talk about football is one of worlds biggest mysteries

Read Liverpool Verdict
Quite how anyone can put a negative spin on the job Klopp is doing at the moment is baffling – then again, Mills did used to play for Manchester City!
The Liverpool manager has been a revelation since taking charge, and while one major trophy may not sound earth-shattering, he has built an incredible side that are currently reigning European champions.
If Klopp clinches a league title at Anfield, he will forever go down in legend, such is the desperation to win one.
