Lucas impressed by new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

first_img Press Association Klopp was appointed last Thursday as successor to the sacked Brendan Rodgers and the German oversaw his first training session in the job at Melwood on Monday. The group that took part – small in number due to players being away on international duty – included Lucas. “He was so successful at his last club, Borussia Dortmund,” Lucas said. “Of course, when a manager like him comes it always gives you a lot of hope. “If we have the same success that Dortmund had when he was there, everyone will be happy. That’s why we’re really positive about it. “If you look at our position in the table, it’s not great. But we are not many points behind the top four and even the top. We still have the cups and the Europa League. “It’s still early days in the season and we have a lot to play for. Hopefully, we’ll start very well under him and at the end of the season it’ll be a successful season for us. “He said to us that he’s here because he believes in the team and the club, of course. “We just have to make sure that we get all the information and try to adapt as soon as possible because as soon as we start to put together everything that he says, we have a better chance to succeed.” Wednesday’s training session at Melwood, with the players back from the international break, is the first being overseen by both Klopp and assistant boss Zeljko Buvac. Bosnian Buvac, Klopp’s number two at both Dortmund and Mainz before that, is able to start work for Liverpool now that work permit issues have been resolved. Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva feels new manager Jurgen Klopp has already made a “very positive” impact at the club. And the Brazilian says he has been impressed by a “very passionate” approach from Klopp that has seen the former Borussia Dortmund boss calling upon his new charges to increase their intensity and aggression. Lucas told on Wednesday: “So far, so good. Monday was our first day on the grass with the new manager in charge. It has been very positive. “There is a lot of information and as players we need to listen a lot now, and learn and try to put everything he asks us to do onto the pitch and off the pitch as well. It has been very good, very positive and hopefully it will keep going like that. “He seems to be very passionate – he likes to put in everything that he has and he asks the players for the same. Be very intense, be aggressive with yourself, is what he has been saying. “Always try to be better, always give 10 metres more, because that will be the key to success. That is what he has been saying to us in the last couple of days. “He seems to be a very open manager and someone that likes to be close to the players, but very straight as well. That’s what I’ve learned from the last couple of days and I think it was a positive way to start.” Klopp built up a fine CV at Dortmund, winning two Bundesliga titles and reaching the Champions League final. Lucas has no doubt the 48-year-old is an inspirational figure and is feeling optimistic about what Liverpool – currently 10th in the Barclays Premier League, six points off the top, ahead of Saturday’s trip to Tottenham – can achieve under him. last_img read more

Rabada slammed by Holding, Pietersen after celebration ban

first_imgPORT Elizabeth, South Africa (AFP) – Kagiso Rabada was criticised by former West Indies fast-bowling great Michael Holding and ex-England batsman Kevin Pietersen on Friday after incurring a ban which will put him out of the fourth and final Test against England in Johannesburg this week.Both former internationals said Rabada had let his team down by being a repeat disciplinary offender.The South Africa fast bowler pleaded guilty to a level one breach of the International Cricket Council’s code of conduct because of the way he celebrated the dismissal of England captain Joe Root during the first day of the third Test at St George’s Park on Thursday.He was fined 15 percent of his match fee and handed one demerit point. As it was his fourth demerit point in a 24-month period he incurred an automatic one-match ban.“He has to learn,” said Holding, who was commentating for SuperSport television.“You can’t keep making the same mistakes. He has to remember he is damaging his team. South Africa without Rabada at the Wanderers – that’s a big blow.”After bowling Root, Rabada charged down the pitch before celebrating with fists clenched almost with touching distance of the England captain.Rabada pleaded guilty to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his or her dismissal”.Fellow commentator Pietersen said the way Rabada got close to batsmen after dismissing them was unacceptable.“He shouldn’t be celebrating in a batsman’s personal space,” he said, adding Rabada had behaved in a similar way after dismissing Zak Crawley during the second Test in Cape Town.“I feel sorry for (South African captain) Faf du Plessis and (coach) Mark Boucher,” said Pietersen. “South Africa are going to miss their strike bowler at the Wanderers.”One of Rabada’s previous offences occurred at St George’s Park two years ago when he made shoulder contact with then-Australian captain Steve Smith.He was initially banned for two matches after being docked three demerit points but this was reduced to one on appeal, enabling him to complete the series but putting him on the threshold of a ban.last_img read more
