Jurgen Klopp Warns Pep Guardiola About How Windy England Is

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has welcomed the impending arrival of Pep Guardiola to the Premier League, after it was revealed the Spaniard will take over at Manchester City from next season.

Guardiola will take over from Manuel Pellegrini on a three-year deal from the summer following a trophy-laden spell at Bayern Munich.

 

And Klopp knows Guardiola rather well, having managed against his Bayern side whilst Borussia Dortmund boss.

Being familiar with Guardiola’s penchant for playing passing, aesthetically pleasing football, Klopp has warned Guardiola about one major problem he’ll face when he arrives in England: the wind.

Klopp was speaking to the media this afternoon ahead of his side’s clash against Leicester in the Premier League tomorrow evening, and he has revealed that he was surprised with how windy conditions can be here…

To be fair, it may sound like a minor detail, but having experienced the wrath of Storm Gertrude over the last few days, we’re sure a lot of Brits can empathise with Klopp’s sentiments.
