In general, I don't agree with managers who get involved with the media at this level in the middle of the season but I was happy to see that Klopp disappeared once the Burnley v Watford match started and didn't fall into the trap of commenting on rivals.

"He's enthusiastic, he's a good kicker and a good goalkeeper, and I do like him". I don't think it should be someone from overseas - I don't care what his record is.
