We’ve found some quotes that sharply describe the kind of manager that will take charge of the Red Devils. These should leave you thinking this is an original thinker of the game we’re hearing here...
- “If you want to increase the speed of your game, you have to develop quicker minds rather than quicker feet.”
- “At RB Leipzig, we work on increasing the memory space and the processing pace. We put players into the Soccerbot, for example – a machine that simulates previous games and allows players to relive key moments of matches.”
- “It’s PlayStation football, but with your feet. The players enjoy it so much we have a hard time getting some of them to stop.”
- “Tactics, fitness and rules are all hugely important, but they’re only a means to an end. My job – the job – is to improve players.”
- “Players follow you as a manager if they feel that you make them better. That’s the greatest, most sincere motivation there is.”
Meanwhile, the German's first game and taste of the English Premier League will be the visit of Mikel Arteta's buzzing Arsenal on Thursday.
