Robert Lewandowski has chosen Jurgen Klopp as his favorite coach, while describing the current Liverpool coach as a person with two faces – one of a caring father and one of an authoritative coach.
Jurgen Klopp transferred Robert Lewandowski to Borussia Dortmund from Lech Pozman in the summer of 2010 and the duo collaborated for four seasons at Westfalenstadion.
During that period, Dortmund won the Bundesliga twice and reached the Champions League final, while Lewandowski contributed with 103 goals in a total of 187 appearances.
The Pole transferred to Bayern Munich during the summer of 2014, while Klopp joined the Liverpool team a year later to embark on a new period in his coaching career.
Lewandowski spent the first two years of his career at the Allianz Arena with Pep Guardiola, who is now in Manchester City and has broken records with his successes as coach.
However, the 31-year-old Polish has ranked Klopp ahead of the Spaniard in the list of the best coaches he has worked with.
“I think Jurgen Klopp is my favorite and behind him is Pep Guardiola. “100 percent,” Lewandowski said.
“Klopp has two faces. You can see he is funny as a dad, but the second part is as a coach and as a manager. “He tells you everything, I’m not just talking about the good things, but also the bad things.”
“He motivates the players a lot, he does it perfectly because he knows where the limit is how much a player should push. “His performance as a coach is great, but he is also such a man.”
