    Simon Jordan believes Jurgen Klopp doesn't warrant a future spot in the Premier League Hall of Fame with his record at Liverpool.

    Legendary Manchester United and Arsenal bosses Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger were inducted yesterday (March 29), sparking a debate on talkSPORT over which managerial candidate would be next in line. Jordan argued it would be Manchester City's Pep Guardiola.

    But he struggled to see any worthy contenders next in the queue after him, telling colleague Jim White: "When you look at Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson that have had this longevity, but you look at the fact that Wenger – how many Premier League titles did he actually win?

    "Then you look at Pep Guardiola, and he will compress, probably twice the amount of titles that Arsene Wenger won into half the amount of time.

    "So, I think it's undeniable that the next cab off the rank to go into this hall of fame, would most likely be Pep Guardiola.

    Do you agree or disagree with Jordan? Let us know in the comments section.

    "I don’t see how he can’t have done [enough], because if you have won the Premier League four out of the last five seasons, I think that is a remarkable record, and I think it will put him right up there.

    "It will supersede what Arsene Wenger did. Wenger's record is ‘The Invincibles’, and the fact that Arsenal and Manchester United were the two poster boys for the Premier League.

    "And then you start to run a little bit dry, because I don’t think you could suggest winning one Premier League gives Jurgen Klopp a scenario."

    Liverpool lifted the trophy back in 2020. Since Klopp's arrival on Merseyside in October 2015, they've also won the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and Community Shield, while the German himself has twice won FIFA's Best Men's Coach award.
