Liberec’s Trpišovský reportedly close to taking reins at Sparta
Speaking after the Teplice game on Sunday evening, the 40-year-old said he would be sorry to leave Liberec.
“I have a position in my mind, but I would like it if the players – who I’ve trained and who I like – were to hear it first. The same goes for other people here in Liberec. I have a meeting in the morning with the owner where we will work it out. It’s not a simple situation for me because however it turns out, half my heart will be sad and half will be glad.”
Trpišovský, who says he models himself on Liverpool’s German coach Jürgen Klopp, is reportedly set to meet Sparta’s executives on Monday evening, after the recording of our show.
