Jürgen Klopp doesn’t see strength in motivation

Jürgen Klopp does not see himself as a motivational artist. “I have no idea how motivation works, honestly. And if motivation were my only strength, then I would not be where I am, ”said the coach of English soccer champions FC Liverpool in an interview with“ ADAC Motorwelt ”. And he admitted, “I can’t make flaming speeches all day. Like everyone else, I have to do a lot of small things. “

He really enjoys doing what he does, said Klopp. And explaining to others why you should do something that you really enjoy doing with a particularly high level of commitment is not particularly difficult for him. He is driven by the thirst for success: “A week later I didn’t feel the Champions League victory myself. It was the same with the Premier League championship. So I’ve been hungry for a long time. “

Dealing with his players is still a central point, it helps “if everyone feels they are taken seriously, everyone feels noticed”. His management style is therefore “strongly people-oriented. I am very interested in making sure that the people around me are okay. Then they can reach their potential more easily. And I basically like to be my players’ friend. Although I realize that I can’t be your best friend. “

For him it is important to maintain modesty. “It helps when a few brain cells work and help you assess the overall situation correctly,” said Klopp: “And at least for that I have a lot of talent. I know: I am nothing special. “

Meanwhile, Klopp criticized the appointments and the TV contracts in the English Premier League. “If someone plays the Champions League on Wednesday, they are not allowed to play again on Saturday at 12.30,” said the German coach in an interview with Sky TV and added: “It’ll happen again next week.” After the premier classes -Party on Wednesday (9 p.m. in the FAZ live ticker for the Champions League and at DAZN) against Atalanta Bergamo, the English football champions will play in the domestic league on Saturday afternoon at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Klopp advised the TV contracts to be “adapted to reality”. In view of the corona pandemic, the world is “a different place than it was when the contracts were signed”. He demanded: “The television companies have to talk together.” The German coach also spoke out in favor of five substitutions in the Premier League. “We all brought arguments. If people end up saying that we are acting out of self-interest, I obviously can’t change that, because it’s just completely past the truth, ”said Klopp.


Jürgen Klopp wants Steven Gerrard as a coach

Jurgen Klopp has long since committed. “If I was asked who should follow me, I would say Stevie. I’ll help him whenever I can, ”said the Liverpool coach a while ago about his possible successor. That Stevie is by the way the longtime LFC captain Steven Gerrard. And he is currently in the process of transforming the starving Rangers from Glasgow into something like a copy of Klopp’s Liverpool and thus almost inevitably positioning himself as the heir to the German who is probably the most popular German on the island.

After 14 matchdays, the Rangers are leading the Scottish Premiership and have already scored an astonishing 37 goals. Alone the most recent 8: 0 against bottom line Hamilton was a football festival – including a pathetic announcement from Gerrard. “Our stadium will be a fortress again. We want to be a terrible opponent and defend our goal with our lives. The opponents have come here for a long time and had a good time. That won’t happen again, ”said the 40-year-old Rangers coach. By the way, archenemy Celtic is supposed to screw up the record of ten championships in a row.

When Gerrard took up his first senior position at the Rangers two years ago, the glorious club from Ibrox was completely out of paint. Although they quickly fought their way back from the fourth division to the first floor after the bankruptcy, they were powerless against Cetic. Gerrard had come to change that – with an approach on and off the pitch not dissimilar to Klopp’s.

From day one, Gerrard made the Rangers a “bullshit-free zone”, as the Daily Mail put it. The Liverpool legend says straight out what doesn’t suit him, but never lacks the necessary respect. Everyone should know where they stand, even if they don’t like to hear it. The training ground has been improved so that the players can spend more time there. The fines have also been tightened. This is how Gerrard managed to transform the heterogeneous squad into a disciplined unit that has now been unbeaten for 20 games.

“Football hasn’t changed. It’s just like 100 years ago. I tell my players what Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez told me in 1999, ”said Gerrard. “Some coaches complicate things. I tell my team very clearly how things are and what I expect from them. “

Word has got around that the Rangers have become something like a mini-LFC. “The system is similar to that of Liverpool, only the players are different. They play the same style away and at home, ”said Jorge Jesus, Benfica Lisbon coach recently. The Portuguese record champions just secured a 3: 3 against Gerrard’s team of the nameless in early November.

Two years ago in Russia it became clear that the big star is the coach. The Rangers had to compete in the playoffs for the Europa League at FC Ufa. Shortly after landing, Gerrard was directed into an interrogation room by an allegedly grim-looking officer. There were a number of Liverpool shirts on the table – and Gerrard was kindly asked to sign them.

Liverpool have named defender to replace Van Dijk

The leadership of Liverpool has decided on a priority option to strengthen the team’s defensive line. This is reported by The Athletic.

The main target of the Lersisides was the defender Dayo Upamecano, who plays in the German Bundesliga for RB Lepizig. Recall that the champion of England is experiencing problems in defense due to injuries of Virgil van Dyck and Joe Gomez. Both players were retired long term due to cruciate knee injury.

In the current season of the German championship, Upamecano played six matches, scoring one goal. The current contract of the defender with the bulls is calculated until mid-2023.


The Liverpool player who started for the Champions League and does not appear in FIFA 21!

Virgil Van Dijk’s injury -who will be separated from the courts for several months-, added to that of Joel Matip and Fabinho Tavares, forced Jürgen Klopp to make some modifications to the owner base of the Liverpool and promote youth players. One of them was Rhys Williams, 19, who was starter in the win against Atalanta (5-0) by Champions League. But what is the peculiarity? Interestingly, the player does not appear in FIFA 21, one of the most famous video games of the moment.

The truth is that the defender had to jump onto the field with the Reds jersey in a circumstantial way -And abrupt- due to the losses in the central defense, having to play not only the last match for the most important tournament in Europe, but also the two previous games, versus Ajax and Mydjitilland, respectively.

Williams’ entry to the first team – and his ownership – was probably not in the plans of EA Sports, the company that produces FIFA 21, and therefore, the 19-year-old is not registered in the most consumed soccer game in the world.

Christoph Freund, on the future of Erling Haaland:

Klopp praised Atalanta and compared it to Leeds de Bielsa

The 19-year-old center-back is one of the great promises of the Reds, where he has been working since he was 10 years old and, except for the last season in which he was on loan at Kidderminster Harriers, he always played for the club. In addition, what accounts for its promising future -and good present- is that had participation with the England National Team in the U-18, U-19 categories and, now, after making his debut at Liverpool, he was also called up for the Sub-21.

Surely, with the shooting that Klopp will give him in the face of the injuries of several of his managers, the defender will soon be in EA Sports plans to be incorporated into the FIFA 21 database.

Crouch: Salah did not dive in front of West Ham

Peter Crouch, the former Liverpool and England striker, gave his opinion on the penalty kick that Egyptian international Mohamed Salah, the Reds’ star, got in the West Ham match last Saturday, which ended with his team winning (2-1) in the English Premier League.

Crouch said to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”: “I don’t think Salah (diving), but he made sure that Kevin Friend, the referee, was aware of friction with Arthur Masuako, West Ham player, and if there was friction, this is a correct penalty.”

He added: “Some may not like the way Salah fell to the ground or the fact that he made the most of this position, but in fact there was a mistake on Masuako.”

Crouch continued: “I do not think that Salah will fall if he is exposed to such friction in the street, but his job is to do his best for his team, and Masuko gives him the opportunity to make a decision.”

He continued: “The correctness of the penalty kick will be discussed now, but at the end of the season if Liverpool won the league, do you think anyone would say anything about how to get the three points against West Ham? No chance for that.”

Crouch concluded, “Things might be different if the referees start making mistakes when the players remain on their feet. I mean the attackers are being dragged and kicked many times, but I don’t think the referee will give them a decision unless they fall.”

It is reported that Salah and his companions headed to Italy to face Atalanta at the “Bergamo” stadium on Tuesday, in the third round of Group D of the Champions League competition.
