Accompanying this snap, the former defender said: “To play behind these three was the stuff of dreams. “Goals, energy, skill, composure, desire, speed, decision making all in those three.

Did we argue? Tick. “Did we demand more of each other? Tick. “Was there in-house competition? Tick. “Did we appreciate each other? Tick. “Did we win? Tick.”

The 41-year-old has also urged Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho to reject the approaches of competitors with Manchester United hoping to secure his services this summer.

Speaking on an Instagram Q&A, the former defender said: “As good as Jadon Sancho is I don’t think he gets into Liverpool’s team right now.

Potentially I think he could be, but right now the three of them play so well together, how do you break that up? “That’s the thing for Liverpool, how do they evolve from where they are now?

That’s a big thing for Klopp but it’s a great position to be in. Who wouldn’t want to be in that position?”
