Jurgen Klopp refused to say whether he thought Virgil van Dijk was the best defender in the Premier League.
Van Dijk joined Liverpool for £75million in January, in what remains the biggest fee ever paid for a defender.
The Dutchman has helped transform Liverpool’s previously troubled defence.
Many believe Van Dijk to be the best centre-half in England, including former Red Jamie Carragher.
But Klopp was not drawn on whether he agreed.
“I’m not a guy who likes these comparisons,” he said.
“I’m really, really happy with Virgil.”
