Danny Mills angers Liverpool fans by suggesting one trophy in four years under Jurgen Klopp is not enough

Danny Mills is not particularly popular with Liverpool fans right now.

His views on Jurgen Klopp, who celebrated four years as Reds boss this week, have not been well received on Merseyside.

Klopp won his first trophy as Liverpool manager by beating Tottenham in last season’s Champions League final and then followed it up with the Super Cup at Chelsea’s expense.

But former Manchester City defender Mills – ignoring the Istanbul triumph – has suggested one trophy in four years is not enough for Liverpool.

He told talkSPORT’s Kick Off: ”Four years, one trophy, is that enough?

“If Liverpool were going to go to the end of this season, it doesn’t look like it now, and only still have one trophy at the end of that, would that be enough?

“You’d be almost five seasons and one trophy. Where does that rank him alongside Liverpool greats?

“Yes, the brand of football has been much better. He’s got them closer. He’s won the Champions League.

“Even as it stands now, one trophy in four years. Where is he amongst the Liverpool great managers?”

On the subject of the Super Cup, Mills compared it to the Community Shield and one Liverpool phoned talkSPORT to question Mills about his comments, using it as an excuse to mock his League Cup triumph with Middlesbrough in 2004.

“It doesn’t count,” Mills said of the Super Cup.

“Ridiculous. I’ve never won it, so it never counts for me. It’s like the Community Shield. It’s not a proper trophy.

“Come on, let’s be honest, how many players at the end of the season, go ‘Yeah, I won the Super Cup’ or ‘I won the Community Shield’. It’s not a proper trophy.

“I don’t think there are any serious footballers or managers, well maybe [Jose] Mourinho, that take that as a serious trophy.”

Here is how other Liverpool supporters reacted…
