According to him, Manchester United is making a very shrewd appointment by bringing in Rangnick.
Rangnick, 63, is set to leave his role as head of sport and development at Lokomotiv Moscow and become interim manager at Old Trafford.
Klopp knows Rangnick well, with his own high-pressing style of play heavily influenced by the ‘Godfather of gegenpressing’.
Speaking ahead of facing Southampton on Saturday, Klopp said at his pre-match press conference on Friday: “So it’s a bit tricky, usually we don’t talk about things that are not confirmed yet but if you tell me it will happen then I might believe you.
“Yeah, unfortunately a good coach is coming to England, that’s how it is, to Manchester United.
“He’s obviously a really, really experienced manager. He built most famously two clubs from nowhere to pose threats and proper forces in Germany with Hoffenheim and Leipzig.
“He’s done a lot of different jobs in football but always his first concern was being a coach actually, being a manager, and that’s what his best skill is obviously.
“United will be organised, I think, on the pitch. I think we should realise that and that’s obviously not good news for other teams.
“But like all coaches in the world, we need time to train with our teams and Ralf will pretty quickly realise he has no time to train because they play all the time so that makes it a bit trickier for him.
“But apart from that a really good man and an outstanding coach, if it happens, will come to England.”
