Who is better: Klopp or Wenger?

Klopp, who concluded his nine-year tenure as Liverpool manager after the end of the 2023–24 season, is celebrated as one of the most astute tacticians in modern football.

His impressive silverware collection includes one Premier League title, one Champions League crown, an FA Cup, two Carabao Cups, the Community Shield, a UEFA Super Cup, and a FIFA Club World Cup.

On the other hand, Wenger is undeniably one of the Premier League's greatest managers, alongside the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, and Klopp himself.

During his 22-year stint with the Gunners, the French gaffer won every major trophy except the Champions League and remains the only manager in league history to win the EPL title unbeaten.

Carragher explains why Klopp is better than Wenger

In light of this context, the Liverpool legend was adamant in his opinion of the superior manager between the aforementioned tacticians.

In a post on social media by Amazon Prime Video, quoting Carragher on Stick to Football, he stated, 'I would put him (Klopp) above Wenger'.

This assertion has sparked significant controversy, with former Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere, vehemently disagreeing with the ex-England defender, per GOAL.

Carragher has since elaborated on his stance, explaining why he rates Klopp higher than Wenger.

"Klopp won the Champions League and got to another three finals in his career. Wenger got to one final," he wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
He continued: "Wenger was a genius competing with [Manchester] United with less money, but when Chelsea came, they couldn’t compete."
"Klopp has competed with City, United, and Chelsea, all spending a billion quid."

Klopp names 'best manager' in the world

Sports Brief also previously reported that Klopp named the world's best manager as he prepares to leave Liverpool.

Despite his own successes, the German asserted that the title of premier coach belonged to his rival, Pep Guardiola.

Speaking before his Premier League departure, Klopp praised the Spaniard for his achievements at Manchester City.
