No matter how many times Jurgen Klopp gets animated and yells at his team to sprint down the heels of opponents, the Premier League will remain a marathon. Pep Guardiola knows this all too well, that’s why he plays the long game of patient intensity.
Liverpool sit pretty at the top of the English Premier League with a perfect 24 points from 8 games and 8 points above second placed Manchester City. The Reds have been trying for years to get back to the top of English football, while Man City thanks to their Abu Dhabi cash cowshave overtaken most traditional powerhouses.
Having secured last season’s UEFA Champions League trophy, it is hard to imagine any man that will bring Liverpool back to their previous heights other than Jurgen Klopp. All he needs to do is make the English Premier League a competition his team challenges and wins often.
