Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that he was set to become a manager as early as 20 and talked about his counterpart Thomas Tuchel. Liverpool is set to play against Chelsea in the final of the Carabao Cup. Klopp ended a two-decade wait for the Premier League title and added another UEFA Champions League to the trophy cabinet.
“So I left Mainz (in 2008), and Thomas arrived,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said. “Thomas was still (an) U19 coach at that time in Germany. And I wanted to go into a club – I think it was like this – and he came out. And that was the first time. I’m not sure he remembers it, but I only remembered it later: that was the first time that I saw him. After that, I heard so many good things about him because I’m friends with Christian Heidel, the director of sports at Mainz. When he started talking about him, he could not stop! It was crazy. Thomas was an incredible talent then, (and) did an incredible job with the youth of Mainz.”
“How many times have I been at Wembley and lost? Twice (in the 2012/13 Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund and the 2015/16 EFL Cup final with Liverpool). That’s good because usually, I do it (win) the third time. That’s the story of my life, a little bit – it’s like this with the Champions League, it’s like this with other things as well,” he added.
