The Former Reds CEO is confident that the German tactician is the right man for the Merseyside club.
Jürgen Klopp is the perfect man for Liverpool and he should be given time to repeat what he did with Borussia Dortmund, according to Purslow.
The team from Anfield are currently in a tight spot, having won only one game in their last seven. Many have been criticizing both the players and the manager for the poor results, with some even suggesting that the club should look for options in case Klopp cannot end Liverpool’s bad run.
Yet, Purslow is convinced that there is no better man for the job right now.
“He’s two years into this job that looked to be perfect for Jürgen Klopp.” he told Sky Sports.
“There are great similarities between what he achieved at Dortmund, what he was expected to achieve – which was to compete with an absolute behemoth in Bayern Munich, while spending less money, both on wages and in the transfer market.
“That is the job description at Liverpool.”
The ex-Reds CEO also added that the club cannot match the financial muscle of big spenders such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City.
“There are revenue differences between Manchester United and Liverpool. Liverpool’s are still superb but they are a fraction of Manchester United.
“And yet the Liverpool manager is expected to compete with United and beat them, exactly as Klopp did – winning two league titles in Germany against Bayern Munich with a fraction of their spending.
“He is perfect for Liverpool. It is an innately difficult project, to compete with less money.”
