Jurgen Klopp did not have any problems with Manchester United while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was on the bench of a great rival. He was not defeated in six championship clashes, he celebrated three times, and the last time with a convincing 5: 0 at Old Trafford.
The next time the charismatic German comes out on the Manchester United square, the rival on the opponent's bench will be countryman Ralf Rangnick, whose promotion at Old Trafford is a matter of hours. Klopp knows Rangnick well and his work, and in Germany, it is considered that Rangnick had the greatest influence on the constellation of domestic experts, including Klopp, Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmmann ...
Klopp commented today on the arrival of Rangnick on the United bench. "It's a bit of an awkward question ... We don't usually comment on such things until it's official. Unfortunately, a good coach is coming to England.
And that is Manchester United! It is obvious that he is a very experienced coach." "He raised two clubs from zero to serious forces in German football. He is a very good coach. United will be very well organized with him.
He is highly regarded in the coaching world. "Wherever he was, he did a great job. He started as a young man in Stuttgart and built his own path. We were rivals when I was a very young coach. He may have forgotten now, but then he often called me while I was in Mainz ", Klopp revealed to England media.
The German then dealt with the current situation in the team and the upcoming championship game against Southampton. "It is obvious that Ralph Hasenhüttl is making a decent team. They do not chase a large possession of the ball, they usually play in a 4-4-2 formation, but they also switch to a game with five behind.
We have to be very creative to break them. " Klopp says that the situation with absent players is better than before ... "It's getting better. About ten days ago, we had "two and a half" midfielders. It's different now.
We used the game against Porto to schedule the minutes." "Tsimikas imposes himself, progresses, and has improved a lot. It took Robertson six months to adapt, and Tsimikas a year. But people forget how good a player Robertson is.
I have no doubt about Andy at all." Asked to comment on the competition in the league, Klopp stabbed Arsenal a little. "Every year, the Premier League takes a step forward. And I’m not just talking about top teams.
The progress of the entire league can be seen through teams from the second part of the table, such as Brighton, Aston Villa, Arsenal, Wolves ... A really strong and difficult league. "
