Chelsea and Liverpool have a Premier League clash this Sunday at Stamford Bridge, and Chelsea must win this game to keep hopes alive of a Champions League spot.
Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp have similar managerial styles as both managers tend to show their passion on the sideline, and Conte revealed his admiration for the Liverpool boss ahead of the game.
“For sure we are both coaches who show great passion for football in every moment,” he said. “I have great respect for Jurgen because you can see his presence in the game and he wants to help the players during the game.
“The fans like this, but you must do this because it is your way – in the past, in the present and in the future – not only because the fans like this sort of passion. You must be natural and show who you are in every moment. It’s important that you don’t change your behaviours or your characteristics, otherwise you are a fake person.
“He is always present, in positive or negative situations. I have great respect for him, but every coach has their own style to follow the game. Every coach tries to pick the best situation for his team.”
