West Ham manager David Moyes paid tribute to Jurgen Klopp in his programme notes ahead of his side’s clash with Liverpool on Saturday.

The Scot sent a classy message to the Reds boss about how he regards the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager as one of the best in the business. Klopp announced in January that he is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season as he is ‘running out of energy’ in the Anfield dugout.

Feyenoord’s Arne Slot is now set to replace the German boss, though the club remain focused on ensuring that Klopp bows out with a bang. The 56-year-old was hoping that he could leave Liverpool after leading them to Premier League glory but their title hopes were left in tatters in midweek after being beaten 2-0 by rivals Everton.

The Merseyside outfit will be keen to bounce back to winning ways against West Ham on Saturday, and Moyes has sent his opposite number a message ahead of the match in his programme notes. The ex-Manchester United boss wrote: “Today we welcome Jurgen Klopp, his staff and the Liverpool players, who are challenging for the Premier League title.”

“Jurgen Klopp is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season. English football will sadly be losing Jurgen at the end of the season.

So many managers come and go over the years and some of the great ones have found it difficult to manage in the Premier League. Jurgen though, has been up there with the very best, the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho, and Pep Guardiola.

“I have previously been the manager of two of Liverpool’s biggest rival clubs but I have to mark my admiration for Jurgen and his achievements during his time at Anfield. Moyes, too, may not be on the Premier League touchline next season, with reports speculating that the higher powers at West Ham are looking to replace the 61-year-old this summer.

Sporting’s Ruben Amorim was previously cited as a target for the Hammers but after traveling for talks with the club, the chances of appointing the Portuguese boss appear slim. Amorim was only linked with replacing Klopp at Liverpool before the Reds decided to aggressively pursue Slot.
