Since Jürgen Klopp led Liverpool to lift the Champions League trophy, many have praised his coaching qualities, and this time, Manchester United legend and DC United captain Wayne Rooney was the last one to do so.

In an interview with Sports Bild, the current MLS player mentioned being impressed with the German's work, as Klopp took the Reds to their sixth Champions League title.

"Jürgen is a coach every professional would like to play for; you can tell how much fun his players have with him. I've met him a couple of times, he's a great person," said the DC United captain.

But Rooney is still true to his former clubs, Manchester United and Everton, which is why he added another thing while referring to Klopp, as in his view, Liverpool's coach has one flaw.

"His only mistake is that he works with Liverpool and has success there."

Rooney finished by saying he has great respect for Klopp and what he has done so far, not just in the Premier League with the Reds but also at Borussia Dortmund.
