Man United manager Ralf Rangnick has dismissed false claims that he was Jurgen Klopp‘s “mentor,” but revealed how he once served as his unofficial advisor.

“We respect each other and that will continue.” It is an interesting time in the Premier League, with Klopp sharing connections with a number of rival managers such as Rangnick, Thomas Tuchel and Ralph Hasenhuttl, while Everton, Aston Villa and Leicester are helmed by ex-Liverpool players and managers.

In fact, the United manager has explained the valuable role he played in discussions over Klopp taking over at Mainz back in 2001, as per the Mirror.

That was, of course, Wolfgang Frank, who in turn was inspired by Arrigo Sacchi, with those two managers regularly cited as driving forces by Klopp himself.

But while Rangnick did not consider the Liverpool manager as his protege, their relationship goes back decades.

“I remember before Jurgen became head coach at Mainz and he called me,” Rangnick said.

“I was not his mentor – that was a coach called Wolfgang Frank – but we have always been in contact and had a good relationship with each other.
