The youngest head coach in Bundesliga Julian Nagelsmann says that he learns from Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.
Julian is praising fellow manager Jurgen Klopp
RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann hopes to emulate the success of Jürgen Klopp in “Liverpool” and admits that he is a big fan of his fellow manager. 32-year-old striker after 21 matches brought “RB Leipzig” to second place in the Bundesliga, while his side is only one point behind the leaders of Bayern Munich. Nagelsmann expressed his admiration for his compatriot and fellow manager and wants Leipzig to have a similar relationship with the English outfit. “Liverpool” has developed so well, especially in the possession and having diversity,” Nagelsmann told reporters. – In the first two seasons, led by Jürgen Klopp, it was more about a counterattack and the creation of attacking moments.
Inspiration for the “Reds”
This is the same process that we are going through now in Leipzig, expanding to not only rely on pressure and counters. “If you want to be a good coach, you have to watch Liverpool games. What they do is incredible.” These are speeches from which you can learn, but more importantly, this is something that can be taken away from their mentality.” Liverpool currently ranked first in the Premier League and 22 points behind Manchester City in the second. They won 24 of their 25 league games, scoring points only once in their draw at Manchester United in October. Julian wants to learn from his German colleague on a tangent but also encourages his players to draw the inspiration for the Reds on the field.
Pep Guardiola is impressing manager
“It’s completely crazy when you are so successful, you are 22 points ahead of the next team in the league, but you’re doing more and more to win the games,” the 32-year-old forward added. “This is a big signal to players, especially young ones.” They must learn from Liverpool to always be hungry, to be better. It doesn’t matter if you are almost a champion; you are still winning and winning and winning and winning. “The promising manager also expressed his admiration for Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, who led the club to another league title last season. “I watch a lot of Liverpool and Manchester City,” he added. “Last season, City had great flexibility, so many ways to open the game and interesting positions in possession of the ball. It is always interesting to watch Pep Guardiola’s team.”
