Klopp Still has not arrived to this, but his press conferences leave to glimpse that his technical talks have to irradiar an energy that the staff 'network' absorbs of unaware way, recargando like this the batteries before face split and in each training. This capacity to convince, these so clear ideas of what wants of each player, is what has allowed to Klopp and Guardiola scalar the peak.
Guardiola Went up to the summit of the Everest, touched the sky with the fingers and launched to the world futbolístico a message imborrable, the one of the best Barça of the history. Now, Klopp finds settled in one of the intermediate bases. It has initiated the climbing, but still remains him a lot of height to arrive until where did it the one of Sampedor. His stepped are strong and decided, and to day of today all have him fear. But the question is: it will arrive him the oxygen until the peak?
