Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ranked above Boris Johnson and The Queen in leadership poll

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is a more effective leader than elite figures such as The Queen and Prime Minister Boris Johnson among several others according to a recent poll. Klopp has already assured himself of legendary status on Merseyside having won the Champions League and Premier League at Liverpool over the past two seasons.

He’s helped transform the Reds from nearly men into perennial trophy winners and are favourites again this season to lift the Premier League title.

But while his managerial expertise has garnered high praise, his approach in the media has also won him fans all over the world.

And it appears as though he’s an incredibly popular man among people in the United Kingdom.

A poll based on how effective this person is as a leader was run by Britain Thinks in The Times.

He comes in just behind New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern.

Winston Churchill topped the list, with a score of 7.82 – only slightly ahead of legendary political leader and philanthropist Nelson Mandela.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford also ranked highly, finishing just behind Klopp.
