German football expert, Kevin Hatchard has said that Chelsea and Liverpool managers, Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp respectively, actually learnt their style of football from incoming Manchester United interim boss, Ralf Rangnick.
Following the sack of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their manager, Manchester United are set to appoint Rangnick as an interim boss, a move that could bring about a fresh start at Old Trafford.
The club has already reached Rangnick to become their interim manager.
“This was a guy who was very much a pioneer when he was bringing his vision of pressing and counter-pressing, that very quick vertical style,” Hatchard said.
“There’s a lot of coaches who have taken a leaf out of his book – Thomas Tuchel is one of those.
“Their paths crossed very early on in Tuchel’s coaching career and, had it not been for his time with Rangnick, he may not have taken up coaching in the way that he did.
“Jurgen Klopp I think has amended some of the ideas for his heavy metal football.
“This is a guy who basically built the Red Bull football operation from scratch in Leipzig.
“Yes, he’s had a lot of money to play with, but you still have to do it and that is a very slick operation.”
