The German tactician’s arrival at Anfield in the winter was met with vast criticism in the English media as the lanky manager seemed to be too high for the liking of many English Premier League (EPL) players and fans respectively. Although the Stuttgart-born mentor took little longer to settle into a visibly demoralised Liverpool side, as soon as the rails got warm he was up and running in no time.

It is, however, not a new tale in the English football or rather a football worldwide for managers to play mind games and behave strangely in order to get the desired results. Who can forget the “Special One” and the Sir Alex Fergusons of this world? Sir Alex was once known for phrases like “Manchester United are never beaten, they just ran out of time”. The Scotsman had instilled the never-say-die spirit and that is exactly what Jürgen has planted in the Reds’ mentality.

One German columnist was even heard to have said: “Um sich so zu verhalten, muss man schon ganz schön bekloppt sein”, which loosely translates ‘to behave like this, you must already be quite daft’ in response to the never-say-die spirit of the former Borussia Dortmund manager when his side had forced the game to be in their favour and walk away 5-4 winners.

In the past five games played, the Reds have won three, drawn two and only lost once – to the Red Devils. This is one way of saying ‘Egal wie bekloppt es erscheinen mag, am Ende bringt er die gewünschten Ergebnisse‘.
