Mauricio Pochettino holds a deep admiration for Jurgen Klopp. Yet, even with this sentiment, the freshly appointed Chelsea manager aspires to thwart the commencement of the German Premier League journey. Furthermore, Pochettino envisions a future encounter with Klopp, ideally within a Champions League final, offering a chance to mend one of the most poignant managerial career setbacks.

Pochettino’s five-year tenure at Tottenham ended in 2019, following his dismissal due to a series of unfavorable outcomes. After a hiatus from coaching, he joined Paris Saint-Germain in January 2021.

However, his journey with PSG concluded last summer with his dismissal, and he has since taken up the role of Chelsea’s manager. As Chelsea gears up to face Liverpool in their Premier League opener on August 13, 2023, Pochettino took a moment to comment on Klopp’s gesture (as reported by Football. London).

2015 Jurgen Klopp became part of Liverpool’s journey after his departure from Borussia Dortmund. Under his leadership, the team has celebrated seven significant victories, among them a UEFA Champions League triumph and a Premier League championship.

The recent 2022-23 season they proved challenging for Klopp and his team. Despite this, Liverpool encountered adversity as they concluded the season without adding any trophies to their collection and securing a fifth-place position in the Premier League. As a result, they missed out on a spot in the prestigious UEFA Champions League. Despite these hurdles, the club’s leadership remains steadfast in their support for Klopp, harboring optimism for a rejuvenated performance in the upcoming season.

Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has been reserved when discussing the new rules regarding time wasting.

Lately, the issue of time-wasting has grown significant within the realm of football. This concern prompted adjustments during the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, where stoppage times occasionally stretched beyond ten minutes.

The upcoming season of the Premier League is poised to implement a similar regulation. We can anticipate substantial stoppage times, much like the illustration witnessed during the Arsenal-Manchester City Community Shield clash on August 6.

During this encounter, an extended eight-minute stoppage time enabled Arsenal to equalize. Eventually, they secured victory through penalties, prevailing 1-1 in the match. Pertaining to this rule adjustment, Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp shared his thoughts in anticipation of their encounter against Chelsea (as reported by Liverpool Echo).
