With Liverpool continuing to demonstrate progress under the leadership of Jürgen Klopp, it seems as if everyone associated with the club is coming out in support of the manager. Former Reds boss Roy Evans added his name to that list on Sunday, as he talked up both the performance and style of Klopp's squad this season.

The manager of Liverpool in the mid-90s, who recently led Jamie Carragher's 23 Foundation team in a charity match, said he likes what he has seen from the club thus far this campaign. Even though he lamented how the Reds are "a little bit inconsistent," he approved of the overall level of play.

"So far, so good," Evans said (via the Echo). "I've been delighted with what I've seen from Jurgen's team. I'm enjoying watching them and they seem to play with that little bit of freedom."

Evans also discussed the energetic manner in which Liverpool have found results. Much like others who have praised Klopp, he touched on the passion and freedom of the squad.

"I like what he says about people enjoying their football and the players enjoying their games," Evans said. "He talks a lot of sense and he's passionate about the game."
