Jurgen Klopp secured a credible 0-0 draw against Tottenham in his first match incharge of Liverpool. There was plenty of his familiar touches during the game including the intense pressing in order to recover the ball. As the players get used to his way of training, the results are expected to get much better. He was the first choice to replace Brendan Rodgers after the Northern Irishman was sacked just before the last international break. SinceKlopp’s tactics are more or less similar to that of Rodgers and this is believed to have played a huge role in his appointment.
The arrival of Klopp has also made midfielder EmreCan extremely happy. Can knows Klopp reasonably well from his time in German football. The duo may share the same nationality but this is unlikely to help the players in terms of getting appearances on the pitch. He will have to earn his way into the first-team. After being signed by Rodgers last summer, Can has become an important member of the team. He did start the game against Tottenham and is likely to hold his place in the future games as well. Can says that the manager is someone who will certainly fit Liverpool in all forms.
“He’s completely different from other coaches. He is more emotional and he’ll put his arm round you.That’s the way he is and I don’t think anything will change regardless of whether he’s in Germany or here in England. I think all coaches have their own way of doing things.I definitely enjoy working with a coach like that. He likes to come onto the pitch in training and show you how you can do something better. He is always keen to help and I find that very positive,” said Can. Liverpool are involved in the Europa league against Rubin Kazan.
