The coach closest to leading Manchester United explains his opinion of Mohamed Salah and Klopp’s style with Liverpool


A short time ago, press reports revealed that Manchester United He has already settled on the new head coach who will take over the coaching job after Ole Solskjaer was sacked.

Michael Carrick will coach Manchester United on a temporary deal to succeed Solskjaer, until a new coach is appointed.

According to the British newspaper, The Athletic, Manchester United have reached an agreement with Ralf Rangnick to become the interim coach of the team until the end of the current season.

Rangnick had previously expressed his opinion on the Liverpool team led by Jurgen Klopp, and the attacking trio, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Rangnick gave an interview recently, where he highlighted the impact of training on the Liverpool team’s offensive line, and told “Coaches Voice”: “Salah, Firmino and Mane, 3 different players from different countries.”

He added at the time: “When they joined Liverpool, none of them were natural winners of the ball. They were not pressure machines, so the way they play in Liverpool was the job of the coach and staff.”

Rangnick confirmed: “The way he played Salah Firmino and Mane in the last three or four years, at this high level, this intense kind of football, it was the coach’s job.”

Speaking in December 2019, Rangnick explained why Liverpool’s style of play is similar to that of RB Leipzig and Salzburg.

Rangnick told Sky Sports: “The style is very similar to Jurgen Klopp’s, it’s proactive, high pressure, rebounding pressure, once we win the ball, we don’t want to waste any time on the side or back passes.”

“We try to play as quickly as possible, try to create chances and try to score as many goals as possible.”

“It is certainly no coincidence that Klopp has four previous players for me (Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita, Sadio Mane and Joel Matip) because it shows that he is in fact looking for the same type of players, with the same origins, with the same mentality that we do.”

And he concluded: “I think that among the big clubs in Europe, he is probably the coach with the most ex-players from us.”
