Going into the game, one player two has seen it all on the other side of the camp before sealing his move to United last summer from Borussia Dortmund has given an insight into the kind of coach Jurgen Klopp is.
Red Devils ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan has described Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as a totalitarian who demands highest quality from his players in training and on the pitch of play and the Armenian midfielder who netted Premier League’s best goal in December is expecting a tough game tomorrow.
“They’ve improved a lot from last year with Jurgen Klopp,” Micki said of Klopp’s new team.
“I know him very well. He’s one of the greatest coaches and he can bring the team to a new level. His team are playing very interesting football and I think it’s going to be a nice game.
“I think he’s doing very well, he gives confidence to the players and takes the best out of the players. That’s what he does very well.
“I missed the first game against Liverpool at Anfield but I know the price of this game. I know the importance of this game. I know very well the history.
“It’s not the first time I’m going to play in such a derby and you have to be ready that day. It doesn’t matter, you have to play for the team and have to play for the crowd to do your best to win that game because it’s going to be [recorded] in the history. Of course, besides that, we need the three points which is very important for the next few months.”
Mkhitaryan scored 23 goals in 90 appearances for Dortmund in three seasons before leaving for England.
