Thomas Tuchel Receives Huge Praise From Rival Boss Klopp

Jurgen Klopp has hailed Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel over his abilities as a manager.

Liverpool face The Blues next weekend at Anfield after each winning both their opening two games.

Tuchel rounded off last season with a Champions League triumph. Jurgen Klopp found further success at Liverpool by implementing the geggenpressing philosophy.

“It is a footballing philosophy, it is a possession philosophy, but he is not stubborn or anything”, he said of Tuchel, via the Liverpool Echo.

“It is flexible from a technical point of view at the highest level. He adapts to different situations. He adapted especially when he came from Mainz to Dortmund.

“I had the same challenge to face, incidentally. Suddenly, you have a completely different quality of player to work with and you have to deal with that.

“Then when you go to PSG that is another step and how he dealt with that I thought was really impressive.”

He added: “With the CV of Thomas, it was clear that he would end up in England at one point because he is obviously an exceptional coach.

“Whatever he has done so far has been absolutely sensational, I have to say. At Mainz, he was successful. At Dortmund, he was successful. At PSG, he was massively successful. So, yeah, he did not choose the easy way but here he is at a top club in England.”
