    In recent days the future of many statues across the UK has come under scrutiny following the toppling of one of the slave trader Edward Colston's statue in Bristol, England.

    It has sparkled a debate over what kind of statue is needed to more accurately reflect life in the country.

    Liverpool will be confirmed as the new Premier League champions if they pick up six points from their final nine fixtures of the 2019-20 season.

    And Reds legend and Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has reckoned that boss Jurgen Klopp could be on soon for his own monument at Anfield when his Liverpool side seal the top-flight silverware.


    Gerrard told The Athletic: "Let's cut to the chase, sitting here, doing this interview right now, I think Jurgen Klopp is the best manager in the world.

    "I know there are a lot of successful managers about. Pep Guardiola is exceptional. Carlo Ancelotti is exceptional too and I think Everton are really lucky to have him with his CV. I could name many more.

    "Having had the experience of being a manager for the past two years, you realise how difficult and challenging the job is. I have nothing but respect for Jurgen.

    "The way the man handles himself, the way he’s been with myself, the way he goes about his business, the way he comes across. I think he’s got a heart and I think he’s got a head. He just works for Liverpool. He has come and taken the club to the next level.

    "Knowing Jurgen, he won’t want to be put in that bracket. I know what he’s like, he’s humble and respectful. When you look at the scale of the job he’s done, for sure he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as those iconic managers.

    "What you need to take into consideration is that when Jurgen took over Liverpool they weren’t close to being the best team in the country, they weren’t even in the top four.

    “To come to Liverpool when he did, get to the amount of finals that he has, deliver the sixth European Cup and then deliver the first league title after 30 years…

    “For me, someone like Jurgen should be rewarded now. It seems like in football we often wait until people get older before their achievements are fully recognised.

    "But I know the owners of Liverpool won’t let that happen. When Jurgen delivers the league they should already be starting work on a statue of him."
