RB Leipzig manager, Julian Nagelsmann is hoping to emulate Jurgen Klopp’s success at Liverpool, admitting he is a super fan of the German manager.
Nagelsmann believes the Reds have developed so well, especially in possession, and it is great to see how much they have changed since Klopp joined the club.
According to him, anyone that wants to be a good manager right now should watch Liverpool games because what they are doing is simply incredible.
He added that their performances week in, week out will teach other teams and managers a lot of things about how they can improve on and off the pitch.
His words, “Liverpool have developed so well, especially in possession and having variety,”
“In the first two seasons under Jurgen Klopp, it was more about counter-attack and creating attacking moments. That’s the same process we are going through now at Leipzig, expanding to not only rely on pressing and counters.
“If you want to be a good manager, you have to watch Liverpool games. What they are doing is incredible.
“It’s the performances that you can learn from, but more importantly, is what you can take away from their mentality.”
“It’s totally crazy when you’re so successful, you’re 22 points ahead of the next team in the league, but you do more and more and more to win games,”
“That is a big message to give to players, especially the young ones.
“They should learn from Liverpool to always be hungry, to be better. It doesn’t matter if you’re nearly the champion, you still win and win and win and win.”
“I watch a lot of Liverpool and Manchester City,”
“Last season, City had great flexibility, so many ways to open up the game and interesting positions in ball possession.
“It’s always fascinating to watch Pep Guardiola teams.”
