Liverpool’s professional throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark states Jurgen Klopp’s revolutionary approach to management is helping build”something specific” at Anfield.
Klopp made headlines last year when he added Gronnemark midway.
The Dane, who holds the world record for the longest throw-in in 51.33m, had an immediate impact on the method of this club full-backs – most notably Joe Gomez.
Liverpool went on to assert the sixth European Cup that year and Gronnemark isn’t surprised to find that the Reds.
“Jurgen is a innovator,” Gronnemark told The Athletic. “He’s a leader who claims he doesn’t know everything and is prepared to follow people if they have knowledge to select the bar forward.
“If you have a leader that wants complete control and thinks that he knows best about what then will affect your employees.
“Even though you are one of the best clubs in the world, it doesn’t mean you’ve got to do the same thing as you did yesterday. When you meet Jurgen you really feel just as if you’re talking with a buddy. He succeeds lots.
“To allow a guy into the club that had been pretty much unknown in England and say to him’we need all your knowledge to put it into the coaching programme’, which reveals a good deal of confidence and excellent leadership.
“He is very good at getting the best out of people. It is a whole lot more egotistical in clubs. In Liverpool, there’s a satisfaction among the players and the team. They feel part of something unique.
“Sometimes I’ll stop and look at the players in front of me and think,’Oh, this is insane’. I’m working.
“Originally , I had a contract for the first half of the season then it had been extended for the next half and now I have one for the entire season.
“I don’t believe many men and women are laughing now. I believe most folks in soccer seem on it and say,’Alright, there has to be something inside’.”
