Jürgen Klopp has commented on the imminent arrival of Ralf Rangnic at Manchester United, as we covered in football news. He calls the Rangnick as bad news for the rest of the Premier League, after also talking about Sadio Mane. Thus, Klopp perceives Rangnick at the helm of United as a threat because they “will be organised on the pitch”.
Klopp has been friends with the 63-year-old since beginning his managerial career at Mainz.
And now, upon Ralf’s joining the Old Trafford side, Klopp believes Liverpool’s fierce rivals have made an astute choice.
He expects Rangnick, as their interim manager, to rectify the failings that prompted Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s sacking.
In fact, Klopp fully believes Ralf will soon be turning a collection of expensive individuals into a coherent team.
Klopp Perceives Rangnick at the Helm of United as a Threat
“Unfortunately a good coach is coming to England, that’s how it is, to Manchester United,” the Liverpool manager said. “Ralf is obviously a really experienced manager. He most famously built two clubs from nowhere to proper threats and forces in Germany with Hoffenheim and [RB] 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.
“United will be organised on the pitch, we should realise that, and that’s obviously not good news for other teams. But all coaches in the world 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.”
