Klopp gets Nagelsmann support

Liverpool suffered yet another defeat at the weekend having taken the lead against Leicester City only to concede three goals towards the end of the match and drop another 3 points.

Jurgen Klopp conceded the title after the game and said that the champions would be focusing on trying to reach the top 4 this season. Compatriot and RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann has come out in support of his Champions League opponent to highlight the good things that he has done throughout his career.

“Jürgen is one of the most successful club coaches and has always made a difference in his stints in Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool. He took over Dortmund in a very bad time and made it a top club,” said Nagelsmann.

“He took over Liverpool in a not very successful time and became one very successful team made with the Champions League victory and the championship. He has the gift of developing clubs and moving people.”

The pair will face off in the round of 16 Champions League knockout phase. Leipzig have won four of their last five league matches, whilst Liverpool have lost their last 3 league games in a row.

Nagelsmann on Werner

Having previously managed Timo Werner at RB Leipzig, Nagelsmann has also spoken of his thoughts surrounding the German forward.

“Timo was the undisputed star striker in Leipzig for a long time, with many goals and a lot of influence on the development of the club. He always played there, even when he made a meter less in training. At Chelsea he is one of many stars and has to Working on certain things, Thomas Tuchel will surely tell him that,” he said.

“Timo has the quality to assert himself. I wish him that too, because he is a good guy.”

Southampton coach Hasenhuttl also had his say recently, having previously been the coach of Leipzig himself.

“He is definitely a player where you have to adapt your game on him. If you do this, he will give you everything you need from a striker. But therefore, he has some qualities you really have to focus on,” he said.

“The good thing for him, I think at Leipzig, when I was there, is we concentrated completely on his qualities. With our quick transitions after winning the ball, it was perfect for our game. But also when he was with Julian [Nagelsmann], he was also scoring a lot of goals.”

Chelsea take on Newcastle United tonight where new blues boss Thomas Tuchel will be hoping that he can be the one to get the best converter at the West London club.
