Current Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has come out to state that his previous Bundesliga rival, Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola would be a fantastic addition to the Premier League and the Spanish coach’s involvement in England would improve the standard of all the other Premier League teams.

Klopp has stressed on the fact that Guardiola is presently the best coach in the world and his involvement will not only raise the standards of the Premier League but also make it competitive and tougher to capture.

Guardiola has been linked with a host of clubs from England after his announcement of leaving Bayern at the end of the season. Odds are high on the former Barcelona coach to take charge of either Manchester United or Manchester City at the start of next season. Even though not high on the probability meter, Chelsea are also on his list of possible destinations.

The former Die Schwarzgelben manager Klopp has had many encounters with Guardiola in the Bundesliga and believes that the Spaniard’s involvement in the Premier League will only take the league upwards.

"If this rumour is as well-tuned as all the other transfer rumours in England then Pep will go somewhere else completely," Klopp seemingly joked with German publication Bild.

"But if it really happens, then in comes perhaps the best coach in the world. That would make it that bit harder for all the other teams in the Premier League." Klopp added.

Klopp’s life as a manager in England may not have been superb, but can be considered as positive. Liverpool ended their bad run of form, which included only one point from three games by winning over the high-flying Leicester City on Boxing Day.

Liverpool travels to struggling Sunderland on Wednesday where the German coach will be looking for nothing more than a victory. Three points will take the 5 time European champions closer to the top 4 on the premier league table.

"One thing is certain: Liverpool is a really cool club and it's great fun to work here." Klopp stated ahead of the match.
