Video: Joey Barton Says Even Mauricio Pochettino is a Better Manager Than Jurgen Klopp

Joey Barton believes Jurgen Klopp doesn’t compare to the other top managers in the English Premier League – and isn’t even as good as Mauricio Pochettino.

The former Burnley midfielder was speaking on talkSPORT last night, just days after watching Klopp’s Liverpool side draw 3-3 away at Watford on Saturday.

And he shared his belief that the German boss isn’t a super coach like Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola, who are in charge of the Manchester clubs.

Barton also believes Tottenham coach Pochettino is a better boss than Klopp – something which should get a strong reaction from fans considering the success the latter has had in both Germany and England, compared to the former never having won a trophy as a manager:

That’s a bold shout from Barton considering Klopp was a major success at Borussia Dortmund, leading the Bundesliga outfit to the league title twice and getting to the Champions League final once during his time in charge there.

Pochettino may have performed better with Tottenham over the last two seasons, but he’s still to show he can win trophies and that surely means Klopp should be held in higher regard.
