“Good game. You’ve been good,” Klopp told Fernandes. “Congratulations for the great game. You’re a top player.”
The Liverpool boss then went on to speak about Fernandes in his press conference, where he predicted the midfielder would make the Red Devils a force to be reckoned with.
“If he [joins Manchester United] then we will face him,” said Klopp.
“He’s obviously a really good player,” Klopp said. “United have already a few really good players, so that will probably make them stronger.
Manchester United eventually got their man in January, parting with £47million to make the transfer happen.
