Xavi: Liverpool is “almost perfect” this season
Liverpool’s performance in the first half of the season was so impressive, even the figures of Barcelona legends, such as Xavi Hernandez greatly admired the performances shown by Jurgen Klopp’s squad. The Spanish legend goes so far as to call Liverpool an almost perfect team.
Jurgen Klopp deserves appreciation regarding Liverpool’s rapid development over the years. The former Borussia Dortmund coach began his romantic story with the Marseyside Team since 2015. The German coach was appointed to be the tactician for The Reds, who just replaced Brendan Rodgers, who was fired by the club because of disappointing results at the start of the season.
At first he struggled, but slowly but surely Liverpool really turned into a respected team. The Reds are claimed to be one of the strongest teams in Europe at this time, where last season they managed to become champions of the European Champions League, having lost the final in the final to Real Madrid.
Many people are impressed with Liverpool’s performance in the last two seasons, including one of them is Barcelona legend, Xavi Hernandez.
“What stands out from the Klopp era Liverpool is their extraordinary intensity,” Xavi told FIFA’s official website.
Furthermore, the figure who has won five European Champions League trophies with Barcelona has an assessment that Liverpool directed by Jurgen Klopp, play a high-intensity performance, so they are brilliant in almost all lines.
“The intensity of their play both when attacking and defending is extraordinary. Their three attackers pressed the opposing team so they managed to make space between themselves. ”
“They are a difficult team to conquer, and on all fronts they really dominate. They always win duels and they explore their tactics very well. I think they are really dominant in every defense. ”
Not only that, Xavi also closed his flattery to Liverpool by calling them an almost perfect team.
“The transition between attack and their defense was almost perfect. How they defend, how they counterattack and the speed of their players is really extraordinary and it’s getting better under the intensity that Klopp gave them.”
