Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has named Liverpool “one of the best teams in the world” ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash at Anfield.
The Argentine has helped the West Yorkshire outfit go from strength to strength since joining in 2018, guiding the club to a long-awaited promotion last season.
And he clearly has a lot of respect for his opposite number at Merseyside, labelling Jurgen Klopp’s team as “one of the best” in the world.
“[Liverpool are] a just champion. They have a consistent style of play. Without a doubt they are one of the best teams in the world,” Bielsa told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“It’s a very special game. Full of different scenarios to last season. They have a defined system with very good players. I reiterate they are one of the best in the world.”
