FA Cup: Thomas Tuchel names best manager in football
Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Chelsea, has praised Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, as the best manager in the world.
At a news conference ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup final versus Liverpool on Saturday, Klopp was praised as a master of the underdog by the German.
On the other hand, Tuchel claimed he had no reason to be envious of Klopp, praising him as "great, hilarious, and one of the best managers in the world."
Liverpool's prospects of winning the quadruple this season will improve if they win at Wembley on Saturday. After winning the Carabao Cup in February, Jurgen Klopp's squad is still in contention for the Champions League and Premier League titles.
“You know Klopp is the master of being the underdog. He can talk you into being the underdog against Villareal and Benfica, and it’s a miracle, miracle how they even draw against them,” the former Borussia Dortmund manager said.
“He can talk you into it and he does it all the time, he does it a lot of times.
“There’s nothing to be jealous of from my side, Klopp is a fantastic guy, funny guy, one of the very, very best coaches in the world and that’s what he does.”
