Jurgen Klopp is unsure if Liverpool are the number one team in world football but admits his side is definitely up there with the best clubs on the planet.
Liverpool will move 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League if they beat West Ham on Monday Night Football.
Timo Werner is the latest high-profile name to describe Liverpool as the best team in the world but Klopp is not totally convinced his side deserve that particular tag.
“This thing with ‘the best team in the world,’ I don’t really get it,” he said ahead of Monday’s visit of West Ham.
“It’s nice when people say it. It’s better than if they say you are the worst team in the world obviously.
“Usually if people mention ‘the best team in the world,’ you think of Real Madrid from a few years ago, Barcelona from a few years ago, Man City of the last two years and stuff like this.
“The team we have is about attitude – go and go and go – mixed with really good football players.
“But I think for the whole world, Liverpool are one of the top, top, top, top clubs.”
