      Well according to James Pearce he is very highly rated by Klopp

      If true I wonder why, what has Achterburg done to earn such praise??

      He has been highly rated by the last 5 managers including the current. Maybe his skills are very highly sought after or its hard to find available goalkeeper coaches.

      Oh you mean the skill of never improving a goalkeeper, yeah I can imagine that is very hard to find ;-).
      Maybe he is just an expert at kissing ass, I've met plenty of people like that who are crap at their jobs but amazing at sucking up to their bosses but I would have thought Jürgen can see through that.

      i have to think this is the case. top rated arse licker, one of the boys, dutch accent so sounds like he knows what hes on about,  etc.
      snake oil salesman more like.
      he should be judged on his results, has he improved any goalkeepers 'consistently... no. cya lad.

      Oh he really does look like the ass kissing type doesn't he, I bet he's a c**t to everyone below him as well. Anyway maybe he's a lovely and honourable guy but what is clear is that he is a terrible GK coach and I would be amazed if he lasts long with Alisson.

      I agree but if true then just what in the name of f**k is it that Klopp sees in Achterburg? He is demonstrably a terrible coach as no one ever seems to improve under him.

      The 'keeper coach is rarely if ever in the spotlight, Mignolet and subsequently Karius  have been disastrous and unfortunate in that order so to save some awkward enquires the goalie coach has been offered up as enquiry blotting paper.

      Alisson is an accomplished shot stopper and well experienced keeper and could probably coach the coach.

      In that case we probably will  hear no more agout Mr Achterberg.

      Its a slightly weird defence though, basically his main quality seems to be working longer hours than Jürgen, that's a fairly well known trick from most workplaces, make the boss think you are working hard and he'll ignore that what you are producing is crap.

      Anyway hope I'm wrong and that Alisson actually improves under Achterburg, there must be a first time for everything.

      i have seen it in the workplace, sycophants who have this symbiotic relationship with anyone who can help them progress, but without doing anything worthwhile themselves...

      I am sorry to say that we had a previous manager like him giving out soundbites to the owners instead of press conferences.
      He was sussed in 2015 and after an end of season worst defeat in over 50 years. To Stoke F.F.S !

      He knew all about management speak .... knew all about getting allies around him and knew all about getting shot of alpha type  personality players such as Pepe ...who could challenge him... which was all dressed up with others shipped out as "getting the wage bill down".

      He knew all about man management stealing Ferguson's envelope stunt after reading his book and he was certain that after a three hour meeting with Box of Frogs Balotelli he had got into his head and Mario was going to set the world on fire with the Reds.
      All he did was use us as "The Bank Of Anfield" like Woy's favourite player Joe Cole.

      What was Achterberg's previous experience?  Tranmere goalkeeper.

      Question:  Has Achterberg actually improved Mignolet ....in how many years the player has been here?
      Answer : No.
      How many points each season has Migs lost us?

      How many would Pepe have lost us?
      All hypothetical yes ... I know ....but my money would have still been on Reina and worth his salary for his safe hands and less points lost.

      Achterberg needs to be kept as far away as possible  from Alisson.

      Seriously!

      Did he has keepers who were capable to be top keepers in recent years? No, Simon and Loris weren't. Alisson is so give him a chance and with Reina, he was a 'very young coach' and Pepe as hard-headed.

      Shouldn't a good coach be able to improve a player even if that player isn't the best in the world?
