Angelos Postecoglou admitted at the press conference the sympathy he felt for Liverpool at a young age, while also talking about the nickname that the Tottenham players have associated with him and also the great influence of Klopp in the Premier League.
Tottenham got off to a great start in their first derby of the season, picking up a point at home against Arsenal (2-2) and will now look to keep it up by hosting second-placed Liverpool (30/09, 7:30 p.m., Novasports Premier League, LIVE from Sportish) .
A game that is very difficult and Angelos Postecoglou knows it very well, with the Spurs coach even sending kind words to his Reds colleague Jürgen Klopp.
“Since Jürgen came to the Premier League, the pace and intensity with which they play with or without the ball is on a different level. The Premier League was already a high-paced league but they took it to another level.”
At times everything seemed chaotic, but you could see there was a plan. I watched Klopp’s Dortmund because I was the coach of the Australian national team and one of our goalkeepers was there at the time.
You could see it from then on, they played similarly.”emphasized the London coach, also referring to the sympathy he had in Liverpool in his youth and also to the nickname “Father” that his players had given him.
“I used to have Liverpool posters but things are changing. I used to watch Happy Days too, but I don’t have any Fonz posters anymore.”
I don’t know why my players call me “dad.” Maybe it has to do with the way I dress and act.
Our job is to support players in every way possible. These are the most important people and some need leadership.
I’m older, I have more life experience. If I can pass on to them some of the lessons and mistakes I have made in my life, I will.
