Speaking about his reunion with Jurgen Klopp in tonight’s Premier League Cup final, Tuchel said he was proud and happy. “It feels great. I’m grateful to be a part of it. We both come from more or less the same club,” he said.
“I had my first experience coaching professional football at Mainz, he was a legendary player and coach at Mainz and I was after him.”
“We met in the Champions League and Premier League, we have played against each other in the Europa League and now in the Wembley final.”
Throughout his career as a manager, Tuchel has often faced Klopp. Transfermarkt noted, the two have faced off 17 times.
If you look at the long list of meetings, Tuchel must admit Klopp’s superiority. A total of seven wins were won by Klopp against Tuchel. The other five matches ended in a draw and the rest lost.
By looking at that record, Klopp certainly knows Tuhcel’s weaknesses which he can use to prepare a strategy for Mohamed Salah and his colleagues to face Tuchel’s men at Wembley tonight.
