Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has expressed his thoughts on the upcoming challenge posed by Brentford in today’s programme notes for the Premier League clash. Klopp is pleased to be back at home after a series of away games, including matches against Bournemouth and Luton. However, he acknowledges that his notes were written before their Europa League group match in Toulouse.
Klopp emphasizes that regardless of whether a game has already taken place or is yet to happen, his view of the opponents remains the same. He recognizes that every team they face presents a challenge, and this is particularly true for Sunday’s opposition, Brentford. Klopp admires Brentford’s style of play, noting that they are a team with numerous ideas.
The Liverpool manager attributes this to the hard work of Brentford’s head coach, Thomas Frank, and his coaching staff. However, he also credits the players for implementing these ideas in a demanding environment. Klopp commends Brentford for having a clear sense of identity, a vision on the pitch, and a way of working that allows both management and players to bring out the best in each other.
Brentford’s position in the league table this season, being in the top half and not far off the European places, is a testament to their approach. Klopp expresses his utmost respect for Brentford and acknowledges the challenge they will pose to his team.
