Coaching likes of Bayern,Real,PSG,Barca,Juve you will win those trophies even without a coaching experience.

I just can't admire a team, that was utterly thrashed and dismantled by Liverpool in three consecutive games.
They may be the best in a league format, but Klopp made beating Man City look absurdly simple. How can Man City be the best team in Europe, when the were so easily disposed of in the Champions League?

Jurgen Klinsmann, Gerardo Martino, Luigi Delneri, Antoine Kombouare`........should I go on?

Those guys won nothing despite coaching those big teams you mentioned.......Its not as easy as it seems

“When you’ve been used to playing for Arsenal for eight years, and for City for six, it’s always going to be a shock. When you leave those clubs you can only go down a level. I was lucky for the last 12 months to work with Guardiola and often you think of someone being a genius of football; but if someone is close, he is the one. I am not saying he’s the best, as other managers have had success with different methods, but he certainly shows you a different way of feeling and seeing football. It was a major shock.”

OK...you're right. They are a yeye team. It is the fault of others that City gapped Man U by ~ 20 points and Arsenal by about 40 points.

Any team that Liverpool can dismantle back to back is a useless team.

I'm not saying they are crap, but they are obviously not one of the best ever and obviously not the best team in Europe. You can't get dismantled with ease by Liverpool three consecutive games in a row and claim to be the best.

Also Guardiola only does it thanks to a limitless checkbook. Liverpool spent way less and earned way more in transfers. All they are missing to be a better team than Man City is 1-2 players, one of which Naby Keita is coming in the summer.

Klopp is way more impressive as a manager than Guardiola.

Klopp did it in Germany and repeated it in England. He doesn't have access to unlimited funds like Pep (checkbook manager). He works with limited funds and you can see he has a more in-depth grasp of tactics.

Can Guardiola do it with limited funds?

Klopp did it with Dortmund

Arsene with Arsenal

Mourinhno with Porto.

Ohenhen1,

It isn't just one coach that is IT. Guardiola is certainly one of few coaches that can be significantly influential on a team. That takes nothing away from those you just named or from others not named. It is a group of excellent coaches.

About the money, can you help look for a side with limited funds for Pep?
Regarding tactics, it's very debatable. The fact today is that over a season Pep has changed the face of English football, you can't take that away and Klopp might just win the ECL and then add more fuel to the fire. Good luck yo Klopp in his quest, Liverpool needs a trophy right now.
