Jurgen Klopp has already earned the right to be placed in the top three Liverpool managers - and he might end up as the second greatest of all-time by the time his Anfield reign comes to an end.

The coach who will get his hands on the Premier League trophy at some point in the coming months joined the ranks of the Liverpool greats when he won the Champions League last June and already, I believe only two men stand in front of him on the all-time list of Anfield managerial giants.

Top of any Hall of Fame has to be the great Bill Shankly because when he came to the club in 1959, Liverpool had been in the Second Division for five years.
