Klopp: People ask me about it a lot, and I answer: Lewandowski, followed by Phillips Pika Nona

Liverpool are doing great this season. In the Premier League, he is currently in third place, just two points behind the leader – Chelsea. In addition, Juergen Klopp’s team is impressively effective, having the most goals of any team in the top European leagues. He has many great footballers in the team, incl. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson or Diogo Jota, which the German trainer was able to develop in an excellent way.

Klopp, in an interview with goal.com, decided to reveal the name of another player, a backup center-back – Nathaniel Phillip, who has made the most progress recently, according to the coach. The German even compared him to Robert Lewandowski, in the past led by Klopp in Borussia Dortmund.

– I have to mention Phillips. People often ask me which player has made the most progress under my leadership, and I tell them Robert Lewandowski. It’s probably true, but Nat Phillips is not far behind him, but on a completely different basis, Klopp said.

And he added, “He’s one of the smartest players I’ve ever worked with.” I remember when I saw Nat Phillips for the first time I talked to him after the game and told him, “You know your game is not the best on the eye?” Since then, he has improved in practically everything and does not play. Life is sometimes unfair and I cannot blame it.

– We can’t keep him forever, that’s clear. We needed him for six months to secure the defense. We’ll see what happens in the next transfer window. Its development is incredible. People love him for playing with his head, but he can do amazing things with his feet too. I would bring him to every club – complimented the German coach of the reserve defender.

Phillips was an important Liverpool player last season (20 appearances in all competitions), when the club’s defensive team was decimated by injuries, including Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez. After his primary defenders recover, the Englishman has problems with the game and may be loaned to another team in the January transfer window.

This season, Phillips has made just three appearances in all competitions, scoring only 144 minutes. The 24-year-old defender has been a Liverpool player since August 1, 2016, when he came from Bolton. In the meantime, he was on loan twice to Stuttgart. The player’s current contract with the Anfield team is valid until the end of June 2025.
