He’s never come up against an opponent like our mighty reds before that’s why.
Think we have his number big time, Klopp’s style of play seems perfectly opposed to counter Pep’s but Pep would never change his fundamentals (which I respect to be fair). Think he has many a sleepless night about us.
He has history when it comes to sarcastic applauding. He did it to his side's own doctor at Bayern after another of his players went down injured in a match. Doctor was given the boot but said doctor is now back at the club.
Read a paper article recently where those who worked with him called him a narcissist who lacks the compassion and human touch that other managers like Klopp had. Apparently he sees his players as pawns in his own ruthless determination to win.
It's that kind of self obsessed attitude that has led him to only managing clubs with bucket loads of cash and already established hegemonies in their respective leagues.
That lack of romanticism and ambition sets him apart from Klopp.
There is far greater beauty and greatness to be found in the tale of a bang average German defender taking a barely professional team and building it from the bottom up as Jürgen did at Mainz.
And there is far greater beauty and greatness to be found in the tale of a financially desolate sleeping giant, recharging them on a minimal budget and becoming the most entertaining side in Europe as Jürgen did at Dortmund.
There is far greater beauty and greatness to be found in breathing fire back into the life of Britain and Europe's most iconic club and creating superstars from scratch as Jürgen is doing at Liverpool.
Jürgen's career is like the save every Football Manager player wants to have. It's pure, authentic and fairy tale like.
Pep? A career and trophy cabinet bankrolled by dodgy billions and corporate dominance...and one very special player (Messi). Send him down to a club the level of Mainz or where Dortmund were 12 years ago and he wouldn't achieve half of what Jürgen achieved.
It's not a debate about who's the better manager. Anyone with a proper understanding of football would know that. Jürgen is simply the best.
