Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has singled out his former Borussia Dortmund player, Robert Lewandowski, as the best he has trained as a coach.
Klopp has built memorable teams at both Liverpool and BVB, winning the Premier League and Champions League with the Reds, and with the Germans winning the Bundesliga title in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons – the last time a team other than Bayern Munich finished at the top of the race.
During that time he has coached countless world-class players, but one in particular stands out for the 53-year-old German.
Who is the player and what does Klopp say?
When asked during an interview with image who was the best player he had worked with as a manager, Klopp did not hesitate to answer.
“Robert Lewandowski. “It really would not be fair to say this about any player other than Lewy,” Klopp initially said.
“What he has done to his potential, how he pushed himself to become the player he is today, this is extraordinary.”
According to the coach, it is not only the innate ability of the Pole in front of the gate that makes him such a good player, but also his work ethic and determination.
“Lewy took every step he had to take to be the goal machine.”
“He is in the game, he just knows in every situation what to do, where to go. “Lewy is an absolute car,” concluded the German. / Telegraphy /
