West Ham are currently 13th in the table, just six points above the relegation zone, having previously reported that the Hammers could sack David Moyes after his poor performance.
However, Klopp did not want West Ham sack Moyes because he did not want to be the most senior manager in the Premier League.
”David (Moyes) is a great manager. I’ve known him now for six-and-a-half years, seven years now, he’s an incredible colleague,” Klopp said at his pre-Premier League press conference at West Ham. Which will kick off on Wednesday night, April 26, at 1:45 a.m. (Thai time)
”He’s a really good guy. I met with him a few times. and having a beer together after the game. I like that he’s always looking for a way out. That’s being a top-level manager.”
”It probably didn’t work when he was at Manchester United years ago. But that was the most difficult time to take control of Manchester United, the club in football history. which took over from Sir Alex Ferguson”
”If West Ham sack David Moyes, I would be the oldest manager in the league. So I want to avoid that!”
”Someone told me before the start of the season that I am the second oldest manager. And if you ask me who is the eldest? It’s probably David Moyes, so I’m cheering for David to stay.”
The oldest Premier League manager is now Roy Hodgson (Crystal Palace, 75), followed by David Moyes (West Ham, 60) and Jurgen. Klopp (Liverpool, 55)
