Rangnick has had some influence on the Liverpool boss in terms of the pressing style. That has been so successful for him and Klopp knows exactly what to expect.

“Unfortunately a good coach is coming to England, that’s how it is, to Manchester United,” he said. “Ralf is obviously a really experienced manager. He built most famously two clubs from nowhere to proper threats and forces in Germany with Hoffenheim and Leipzig.”United will be organized on the pitch, we should realize that – that’s obviously not good news for other teams.”

United is hopeful of reaching an agreement with Lokomotiv Moscow for Rangnick to be released to become the club’s interim manager in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Negotiations between the clubs have been positive, with Rangnick currently manager of sports and development at the Russian club.

“A few minutes in, when the ball had gone out for a throw, I had to stop and count the opposition players,” he recalls in Raphael Honigstein’s book, Das Reboot.

“That was the first time I felt what it was like to come up against a team who systematically pressed the ball.”

Lobanovskiy’s relentless organized pressing tactics would form the basis of Rangnick’s own philosophy. One he would later implement at a string of clubs including Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. They are helping to revolutionize German football, inspire a generation of coaches including Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel, and, ultimately, take him to the Manchester United hot-seat.
