Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa believes it is easier to dissect the philosophy of Jurgen Klopp rather than that of Pep Guardiola. Bielsa believes that Guardiola’s philosophy needs to be enjoyed rather than analyzed. Bielsa himself is one of the well-known innovators and has been responsible for some of the best coaches in the world including Mauricio Pocchetino and Diego Simeone. He explained that Jurgen Klopp’s football is reliant on winning the ball back as soon as possible.

“Success produces the desire to imitate and here there have been very successful coaches who have generated the desire to reproduce in other teams the procedure that allowed Guardiola, Klopp [to win] the league,” Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa said about Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola. “Guardiola is not someone to interpret, he is someone to enjoy. When you see what he does, you enjoy it. And if one wants to reproduce what he does, it is very difficult because to reproduce what he does forces us to an interpretation and I have the feeling that Guardiola’s intellectual construction is not accessible, at least to me.”

“From my point of view Klopp is a coach with his own stamp and also his game is very attractive, but he is more accessible to be decoded,” he added. “The enthusiasm that Klopp transmits is a very clear sign of his teams, and building resources to drive creative play is what sets Guardiola apart, from my point of view.”
