Liverpool Boss Klopp Heaps Praise On Incoming Manchester United Boss “Rangnick

Published

on

Jurgen Klopp while reacting to the news that Ralf Rangnick is poised to take the managerial reins at Old Trafford after the sack of Ole, the Liverpool boss said: “Unfortunately a good coach is coming to Manchester United”.

The Red Devils finally took the decision to part with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s services after a shambolic display in several league games. The Reds are now looking for a coach with vast experience to help get them back on track on an interim basis.

Former RB Leipzig coach Rangnick is has been reported to see the 2021-22 campaign out with the Premier League heavyweights, and fellow country man Klopp is expecting his fellow German to stamp his authority on the under-performing Manchester United squad and get them moving in the right direction.

Asked about Rangnick’s imminent arrival in English football ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Southampton on Saturday, Klopp told reporters: “Unfortunately a good coach is coming to England and Man Utd.

“He built most famously two clubs from nowhere to proper threats and forces in Germany with Hoffenheim and Leipzig.

“He did a lot of different jobs in football but always his first concern was being a coach and a manager. That’s what his best skill is, obviously.

“United will be organised on the pitch, we should realise that – that’s obviously not good news for other teams!

“But all coaches in the world, we need time to train with our teams and Ralf will pretty quickly realise he has no time to train as they play all the time, so that makes it a bit tricky for him.

“Apart from that, a really good man and an outstanding coach, if it happens, will come to England.”

The Liverpool boss also added: “Between the coaches (in Germany) he is very highly regarded, and wherever he was he did an incredible job.

“He started early as a very, very young man at Stuttgart coaching the second team and going from there. I’m pretty sure he then went to Ulm and took them to the Bundesliga which was insane at that time.

“We faced each other for the first time when I was a very young coach and he was at Hannover, he might have forgotten that.

“They always played our opponent the week later, so he called me, the young manager at Mainz, and asked plenty of questions. I was happy that big Ralf Rangnick was calling me but he got all the information he needed.

“They got promoted, we didn’t. So he owes me still something!

“In the football world in Germany, he is very, very well regarded, and rightly so.”

If the deal eventually goes through, Rangnick will be inheriting a squad that sits eighth in the Premier League table as things stand, with 12 points separating them from leaders Chelsea.

Liverpool are a little closer to the title tussle, as they sit three points off the pace, and will be interested observers when United take in a testing trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

A number of Belgium players were involved in a dressing bust-up after their shock 2-0 defeat to Morocco at the 2022 World Cup.

According to RTL Sport, Kevin de Bruyne, Jan Vertonghen, and captain Eden Hazard clashed after the match.

Tensions were already high after De Bruyne told reporters before the game that the team was “probably too old” to win the trophy.

Those tensions now appear to have reached boiling point, as the three players let their tempers erupt following the loss.

Karim Benzema could make a surprising return to the France squad at the 2022 World Cup.

The 34-year-old had initially been ruled out through injury.

Benzema was expected to miss the entire tournament with a thigh problem.

France head coach, Didier Deschamps, opted not to call up a replacement and has continued with Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Kingsley Coman and Marcus Thuram.

However, RMC Sport claims that Benzema could still return to the France setup as he returns to full training this week at Real Madrid.

Benzema could be fit enough to take part in the knockout stages of the World Cup.

FIFA rules permit players to return to their squads if they recover from injury if they had initially been named in the tournament squad before being ruled out.
