Liverpool have revealed how Jürgen Klopp and his team of assistants work during the talks at the break of the games. Through Peter Krawietz, Klopp’s assistant coach, Liverpool have published on their website the methods used to influence players during breaks.With the help of two analysts, Harrison Kingston and Mark Leyland, Krawietz spends the first 45 minutes of games identifying “the tactical nuances” that players have to focus on at halftime., both positive and negative.Obviously this is a task that also falls to Klopp and his assistant Pepijn Lijnders, but Krawietz focuses “on the visual aspect”, producing video clips that support the explanations of the German technician.Krawietz, who has already accompanied Klopp in Mainz and Borussia Dortmund, explains that the talks at half-time are already prepared throughout the week, with an analysis of the rival and the team itself. The assistant sits with Klopp on the bench and makes notes during the match in a notebook, trying to glimpse how they can help the team, what the players are failing and what they are hitting. “Three or four minutes before the break, I go to the locker room. There I meet Harry and Mark and we choose the best video clips that I have identified during the meeting. I see them again and we decide if they are valid,” Krawietz explained. “The coach has about five or six minutes to talk, so we may find the right clip to show the players and to support Jürgen’s talk.”Krawietz indicated that three or four clips are used at most, with which it is intended to have an incidence in the second part. “One possibility is that if everything went well in the first part, it is to reiterate the pre-match strategy. Another possibility is that we have not found solutions, so we will try to give the players an image of the spaces in which we can play.”One of the examples Krawietz uses is the Premier League match against Southampton last February that ended with a 4-0 victory for the ‘Reds’. “Southampton played very well. In the end we won 4-0, but the match was very even and they prepared very well. We had problems in the first half, they created chances and we did not play well.” “The break talk was about continuing to attack as we have done so far. The message was’ keep trying and you will see what happens,” he said.
