Former Liverpool Cosch Pako Ayestaran Impressed By Jurgen Klopp’s Work At The Club

Former Liverpool coach Pako Ayestaran has been lmpressed by current manager Jurgen Klopp.

Jurgen Klopp is in his second full season in charge of Liverpool – They currently sit third in the Premier League table and are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Pako Ayestaran, who worked as assistant coach to Rafael Benitez at Liverpool between 2004 and 2007, has praised the current manager’s philosophy.

In an LFCTV documentary named Back at Melwood… with Pako Ayestaran, the Spaniard said: “I have really enjoyed watching them since Jurgen came. I have followed many games on the television and I think the first game I attended live was last season against West Brom.

“I was so impressed by the pace, the exchange of positions [while] keeping the balance of the team. The team has the right mix of pace, aggressiveness, positional game.

“I remember that week, they [also] played a midweek [EFL Cup] game against Spurs. Liverpool tinkered the line-up but, despite 10 or 11 changes, the team played mostly at the same level and it was great to see. To be honest, I really like [Klopp]; I followed him before when he worked in Dortmund and I think he is doing great.”
