Raymond Verheijen’s Twiter rant

Dutch coach Raymond Verheijen is well known for going on periodic Twitter rants.

Verheijen is a highly-rated  fitness coach who has previously worked with former Wales coach Gary Speed, while he also appears on Dutch television as a pundit and has also written a book about training methods.

On Thursday he’s taken aim at Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Pep Guardiola’s Man City.

In short, Verheijen is predicting that the Reds and Sky Blues will both suffer from injury headaches this season due to deficiencies in the tactics of the respective EPL managers.

It’s all about ‘periodisation’

Verheijen’s major bug-bear relates that the lack of rotation in the Liverpool and Man City XIs.

The fitness coach believes Klopp and Guardiola’s stars will suffer knocks due to too much playing time.

At present, Kevin De Bruyne is out of action for City, while the likes of Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne have problems at Anfield.
