Head coach of “Liverpool” Jurgen Klopp before the UEFA Champions League final against real Madrid jokingly called himself and Zinedine Zidane profane in tactics.
Five years ago, you had the final at Wembley. What’s the difference for you personally?
– Champions League final – this is the one chance for life, as I perceive it. I’ve got a second.
Then we played, wasn’t ashamed. And I didn’t know if I will have again such possibility. Thanks guys, they gave me this chance. They deserve to be here. Proud of them
– And all you brought to Kiev, who would?
– All Yes.
– Many people say that Zinedine Zidane is not very good at tactics. What do you think about this? What is its strength?
Those who think Zidane is weak in tactics, say the same about me. Funny that in the final two profane in tactics. For me Zidane is one of the coolest players in history.
Now I am against him as a coach, that’s cool. The team works like a Swiss watch. It will be interesting. We, of course, different, but both are here.
