Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp is a “zeitgeist”, says his agent

    In an interesting article posted by The Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp’s agent has revealed the coach’s “secret recipe” to success.

    Speaking to German website Spox, Marc Kosicke described Klopp as “zeitgeist”, a 19th century German philosophical term that refers to an invisible agent or force who dominates the characteristics of a given period.

    “On the one hand, he understands football as a top coach needs to understand it. On the other hand, his main competence is dealing with people, because he is unique,” said the football agent.

    “He is not too bad to surround himself with people who can do certain things better than him – and then let them do it.

    “He has something God-given for that: his eloquence, the way he speaks, his rhetoric. You can not learn to set the right punchline at the right time.”

    “He does not care so much for all the success himself and absolutely does not have to be the focus,” he said.

    “I think that if Jurgen ever stops, then you will not see him often. Then he is with his family and his mates together, walks with the dog, plays paddle tennis and skat (a German card game) and has a nice life.

    “Jurgen is totally normal and that is again so abnormal in this angry media world, that is quite unique.”

    Klopp brought Liverpool their sixth Champions League in June but Kosicke said that winning the Premier League is still the overriding aim for the German coach.

    “You have now seen what was going on in Liverpool after winning the Champions League. As a result, the very great pressure that he himself does not feel so much but which is there from the outside, once gone.

    “The UEFA Supercup was also added. He is not only proud of the process that is going on, but also very happy that titles are back in the closet. Therefore, winning the Premier League would still be a goal for Jurgen.”
