According to newly appointed Blues boss Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp is a manager to be afraid of this Premier League season. Conte also mentioned that Liverpool’s German boss Klopp, has an edge over him as Klopp has extra Premier League experience, which will be pretty vital in the race for the PL title, claim The Evening Standard.
The Italian has said that Klopp already has nine months and on the other hand he has just joined Chelsea, which gives Klopp’s Liverpool a huge advantage to be title contenders next season.
“Liverpool are one of the best teams in the League and I’m sure can fight to win the title,” Conte said.
“Jurgen Klopp worked already for nine months with this team and it’s very important for him and Liverpool to understand each other.
“It’s important to work and have the time to transfer your methods and ideas of football.
“It’s very difficult to go in during the season when a manager was sacked. It’s not easy. You must transfer your ideas in a bit of time and it’s difficult.
“But last season was very important for Klopp and the players. The players know Klopp and he knows the players. It’s important to transfer your idea of football and to have the identity of the player.”
We all know that everything hasn’t been that smooth at the Anfield for Klopp, in fact, any manager would have struggled in his position to manage the kind of squad Liverpool had. It is impossible for any manager to just join, do miraculous things and lead the team to win trophies, and if you think so you might be delusional! Klopp is like us all, he is just like us, a human being, and everybody needs time.
But now we can surely expect some Klopp magic! Especially when the German had the whole pre-season and the summer transfer window to sort out the problems in the squad!
