Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp details what Mikel Arteta has done right at Arsenal
Jurgen Klopp believes Mikel Arteta has changed the mood at Arsenal after turning the Gunners into winners again.
Liverpool take on Arteta's side on Monday in the Premier League as they prepare for their second clash of the season following the Gunners' win in the Community Shield.
Arteta led them to the FA Cup last season and is now trying to improve on their eighth-placed finish in the league last term.
And Klopp is preparing his champions for a tough challenge at Anfield.
The Kop boss said: “Mikel showed in a pretty short period of time that he seems to be an exceptional football manager because the team he sets up now, the structure of the team is absolutely exceptional.
“You can see the balance between defence and offence is really good, you can see a lot of things that are obviously really helpful in football.
“Good organisation but freedom for the players as well, he uses the players in the right positions. I have to say since he has been there he did a pretty impressive job to be honest.
“He has changed the whole mood in the club.
“I'm not sure what the mood was before he arrived but I don't think a lot of people thought he would have won a competition [before the end of the season] and he did that by winning the FA Cup and now winning the Community Shield.
“So that is pretty impressive so they are tough, tough opponents, 100 per cent.”
Meanwhile, Klopp believes Premier League clubs should be helping out those further down the food chain in the football league pyramid as they prepare for a financial battle without supporters.
He added: “ I think that people in a better position should help people in a less good position, 100 per cent.
“For me, I don't understand the structure here 100 per cent.
“In Germany the first and second league is obviously a Bundesliga one and two so they are together so they share the problems if you like and it makes things sometimes easier.
“Yes, it is difficult but as a general answer I think people in a better position should help other people but the position for all clubs at this moment is not really easy as we all know.
