he was considered as a good manager probably top 10 but wasn't yet a superstar he played for mines as a player before retiring and becoming their manager he had his ups and downs with the club leading them to promotion in 2004 before being relegated in 2007 he then became Dortmund manager and led them to two

league

titles in 2011 and 2012
but in 2015 Dortmund had a disaster season where although they finished seventh and one point they fought relegation and he left the club and soon became the

recent peek under Rajas during this season Rodgers usually played a 4-3-3 with the most used players being as displayed often during games sterling would withdraw allowing storage and Suarez to both play centrally Rodgers played a fluid attacking style that was led by a front three who led them to scoring over 100 course they lost out by two points to Man City in the end but a major theme that would play

for years developed they conceded 50 goals in the season which was the second
worst and top-8 this is the theme for a few years for

Liverpool

of great attack and poor defense although he did tweak formation the shape of his back for and midfield three was relatively stable allowing a platform for the fluid forwards but then in 2014-15 the team encountered problems in Rogers his final full season and in this season we see many of the problems which Club would immediately try to rectify in this season Rodgers was unsure how to play to make up for the loss of Suarez and as a
result he changed formation sporadically between the 343 the 4-2-3-1 the 433 and many more which created uncertainty within the ranks of the squad his personnel were also ill suited to his most used formation praying for players out of their preferred position having lost warriors to Barcelona they attempt to replace him resulted in 10 players bought for 117 million failing to plug the gap in this season they only scored 51 goals while conceding 48 at the same time their position stats were down

from the previous season as well to 54% as playing a midfield to loosen their grip on the matches they suffered from their deficiencies in both defense and the goal keeping area as they conceded 10 more goals than they expected goals had them on target for in 2015-16 Rogers was sacked midseason with a club in 10th and in came

had a good impact and took them to the Europa

League

final where they lost out to Sevilla but we won't look too much into the

tactics

of his first season
because he had only had half a season to implement his changes but in the transfer window crop already begun to make changes to his squad to mold it to how he wanted to he got rid of five first-team players in Abe Allen benteke and Luis Alberto in order to get the squad toward the direction he needed and in his first summer window he brought in grew each male Carius lat tip Clavin and while Adam and three of these are undoubted successes he bared his teeth and this ruthless streak with transfers
would continue in 2016-17 we began to fully seed the club philosophy take place during his first full season as he improved them in almost every area the first thing he did was give his team a system which they could stick to so each player would know exactly what their role was and reduce psychological uncertainty during matches as a result they performed better as a unit and they were there for less lying on individual brilliance they played a 4-3-3 in 35 of their 38 games who contrast to the
chopping and changes of Rogers and Claude brought his Gagan prescient to the fore in this season and they finished fourth but accumulated many more points than Rogers as lost full season but the important thing was the undoubted improvement from Rogers his last season as club brought in his fluid attacking play they had more possession more goals for Less goals against more shots for and less shots against which tells this statistical tale they even got into better attacking positions where the
more crosses for was reducing the crosses against however clubs team was not quite where he needed it to be they outperformed their ex G and they expected goals conceded which was the second most in the top six meaning that in actuality the expected points had them to finish at fifth instead of fourth this would have been an indicator to

Klopp

that the job was far from done and they had to improve and that's exactly what club did heading into the next season starting with his transfers club
began to trim down the squad to suit his vision getting rid of Wisdom Leyva steward and Sacko in came Sala solanki Robertson and Alex oxlade-chamberlain three of whom were undoubted successes with the team now accustomed to the 4-3-3 club began to introduce variations to the team's

tactics

they still played with a high tempo pressing game with primarily a back four however the front six could also their shape depending on the game they could be a 4-3-3 to stretch defenses a 4-2-3-1 to keep
how jurgen klopp transformed liverpool liverpool champions league 2018 19 klopp tactics
possession or even if a 4-4-2 to isolate the center backs in this season he began to convert Salah from an out-and-out winger to an inside Ford or even a striker and again club improved their underlying numbers from the previous season trending up in goal scored possession crosses four whilst reducing goals conceded and shots conceded big factors for this change were the form of Salah who are performed his XG by seven goals and Van Dyck joining by the midway point to assist the team defensively
in the lead they may have finished fourth but they expected points had them finishing second the drop off may have occurred as they chose to focus on the

Champions

League

towards the second half of the season he had the team playing his way and they bulldoze their way to the final with and Ike providing newfound solidity at the base of defense they eventually lost in the final and many wondered if their best time had passed them by club however was determined for that not to be the case he saw
Katina and Emery chan who are the biggest losses but he also trimmed the fat of the squad getting rid of Ward Flanagan and Clavin displaying a ruthless streak his inbound transfers were van tied for B no kata Shakira and Allison was Alexander Arnold became crucial every transfer strengthened the team and the squad and the club ideology was now firmly in place and the major change in this season aside from the personnel was tactical psychological pop realized that the team would need more dynamic
flexibility with their

tactics

in order to challenge Europe's biggest teams he still primarily used a 4-3-3 but often for menial drop deeper and the wingers would cut in making it look like a 4-4-2 diamond so the wingers were really only wingers on paper meaning that it was actually a 442 in addition now Marnie was able to pay up front make you hard for the defenders to keep a track of which one of the front three was the biggest danger in this season club also used more runners from
midfield to overload the box as they attempted crosses went up with Robertson and Alexander Arnold providing the service which allowed Marnie and Saleh a lot more central this resulted in them getting 97 points and although they did outperform their expected points due to defense led by Allison and Van Dyke conceding 7 less goals than expected whilst their clinical forwards scored 10 extra goals it has been their best season on paper since club take over as their possession went up and their
home record was strengthened their goal scored was up and Kohl's conceded was lower every season on the clock and this defensive solidity was shown as opponents gotten less attacking positions against

Liverpool

with our ponents attempted crosses going down in this season in a bid to keep his team at the peak the whole season he has actually reduced the amount of pressing the team does in fact while they're able to press when needed the team now has the intelligence to tactically choose
when to press and when to drop back this has resulted in

Liverpool

having their highest position stats of the past five years he has also improved the psychological element by getting them to function as a team rather than individuals making them greater than the sum of their parts as Club said tactical things are so important and you can't win without the tactical things but the emotion is makes the difference so in summary club has gotten liver pot to this position by improving the
personnel and having over 11 pairs perfectly suited to his system improving their general style of play by increasing distance covered shots for angles was reducing the opponent's attacking threat and also by improving the mentality of the team so with all these improvements be enough to see them become
