Low was full of praise for the work done by Klopp in Dortmund and the World Cup winning coach feels his compatriot can bring similar success to Liverpool.

Negotiations between Klopp and the Merseyside club are understood to be progressing well and Low argued there are strong similarities between Dortmund and Liverpool, which suggest Klopp can restore the club to the top of English football.

“I think there are strong parallels between Dortmund and Liverpool with the passion and size of their support,” said Low, ahead of Germany’s European Championship qualifier against the Republic of Ireland. “I think it is a good fit.

 “I’m not party to the negotiations between Liverpool and Mr Klopp so I don’t know how they are progressing, but if an agreement can be reached it will be good for both.

“Mr Klopp, if you look back, was fantastically successful, exceptionally successful at Dortmund. He unleashed a lot of emotion in Dortmund supporters and [he can do the same for Liverpool.]

German captain Matt Hummels, who played for Klopp for many years at Dortmund was also full of praise for his former boss adding: “There is no doubt he is a fantastic coach, a great coach.

 “When people put their minds to the question about what he is going to do post Dortmund, then clubs Liverpool had to enter the frame.

“He lives, breaths and thinks football day after day. He is a fantastic addition to any side and I will certainly keep my fingers crossed for the next step in his career.”
