The German expressed his eagerness to match wits with the Australian manager, noting his familiarity with Postecoglou’s strategic approach from watching his previous team, Celtic.

In a pre-match media conference, Klopp conveyed his insights into Postecoglou’s coaching style, derived from observing the performances of his Celtic teams.

He said: [PLZ Soccer]

“Everyone knew already [how good a coach Ange is] when you saw Celtic play, you saw what kind of coach he is, how good he is as a coach and coming to Tottenham, I think they were all desperate for some offensive football, and he’s delivering that.

“In a year when Harry Kane left the club, he’s doing extremely well. They’re a well-set-up team, exciting to watch.”

Postecoglou has made a remarkable impact on the Premier League since his arrival, captivating fans with his dynamic and offensive football philosophy. Despite initial scepticism and underestimation of his capabilities, just like what initially happened at Celtic, he has successfully altered opinions, earning the Manager of the Month award in August due to his impressive accomplishments.

Liverpool’s trip to Spurs is set to be a thrilling encounter, and fans can tune in to watch it on Sky Sports Main Event.

The former Celtic manager has down well so far and is off the back of a 2-2 draw with Arsenal. A win against Liverpool would certainly go down well.
