Watching the post-match show tonight of the Copa America match between Uruguay and Chile (on Telemundo, an American Spanish-language network that uses commentators mostly from Central and South America). Now, I've noticed the intensity and the tempo of these games has been more enjoyable than in past versions of the event (and I say that as someone who likes football from South America). Now, my Spanish is far from perfect, but there was a bit on just now where they were showing a lot of highlights from the 18 group stage matches played through tonight and they were pointing out how many of the teams were employing some form or another of a press. The lead commentator, if he said it once he said it 10 times, would break in as the clips were being played with "Liverpool y Klopp"
I know Jürgen didn't invent the idea of a press, but I think he has developed it and applied with such effect he qualifies as a tactical visionary who is proving to be remarkably influential in the world game (my country's national team - USA - is trying to do it as well, but has a long way to go). It's great to see him get his due for this from that part of the world. He's more than just a motivator.
