Wayne Rooney acknowledges the talent of Klopp
Wayne Rooney, the former Manchester United striker, acknowledges the talent of the German strategist.
After 5 years, with the presence of Klopp, Liverpool improved in all aspects. In the transfer market, they are no longer idiots with deals like Lazar Markovic, Christian Benteke, but instead Alisson Becker – Virgil Van Dijk – Fabinho, Liverpool’s backbone or Salah – Sadio Mane, The duo contributed the most goals this season.
The German strategist is concerned about the smallest elements of training to help Liverpool have the best performances when playing. Behind what fans have witnessed is the relentless effort of the team of experts including Head of Nutrition Mona Nemmer, coach Thomas Gronnemark, sports psychologist Lee Richardson, manager of the health department, and restoring Phil Jacobsen.
At Melwood, the door of Coach Klopp’s room is always open to welcome all players and members of the coaching staff. He is willing to listen.
These factors help Liverpool to show a completely different face. In the Premier League 2019/20, they are masters in counterattack situations with 9 goals, topping the tournament. This figure in the 2015/16 season is only 1 (ranked 12th).
Coach Klopp has built a solid defense
In his first season in charge, Liverpool conceded 50 goals. Up to this time of the season 2019/20, Liverpool received the least goals (21 goals).
In England, Klopp’s greatest counterpart is Pep Guardiola’s Man City. In 10 direct confrontations, Liverpool won 5 matches, drew 2, and lost 3.
Coach Klopp is also the most annoying opponent for the Spanish strategist. On average, Pep earns 1.28 points per match against Klopp. Meanwhile, the number when playing against Jose Mourinho or Arsene Wenger is 1.77 and 1.93 respectively.
In the 2018/19 season, Klopp was named the best coach of the year by FIFA with a record of 14 years of winning the Champions League. By this season, he continues to bring glory to the Port City team. Liverpool won the Premier League after 30 years of waiting. They are even the earliest to ascend the throne when the season has 7 more rounds to end. With all that done, Klopp deserves to be called the best coach in the world now.
