The Blues have had five different managers at the helm because the German took over at Anfield, though both clubs have enjoyed success.
Sticking with the same trainer for a long time period is the key to Liverpool’s recent achievement, based on Willian — who admits Chelsea have their own way of operating.
Since Klopp was appointed Liverpool manager in October 2015, Chelsea have been directed by Jose Mourinho, Guus Hiddink, Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard.
The Blues have won league and cup titles at the time, but they’ve been powerless to stop Liverpool’s rise to the top in recent seasons — though they did lately knock them out of the FA Cup in Stamford Bridge.
“I think that the key [to Liverpool’s success] is continuity,” Willian told ESPN Brazil.
“The coach has been with the club for nearly five decades. When you have continuity, you can win titles.
“They had a succession of important successes, which reveals the maturity of the group. You must have the time to get things done, and Liverpool have had a mentor and a doctrine for quite a long time.
“The team is identical, it’s only a couple of players that change, the foundation is the same. In Manchester City also, Guardiola has been around for quite a long time, the doctrine is always the same.”
Chelsea have gone through their fair share of trainers in recent years, and Willian has seen his part in the group change throughout his time at Stamford Bridge.
This continuous brewing procedure has worked well enough to the Brazilian, who has won the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League throughout his period in west London.
“Chelsea change a good deal,” he confessed.
“In seven decades, I’ve had five different pieces of training.
“But even so, we won names, since Chelsea always had this, it has always been like that and the team has continued to win titles. I believe each club has a profile.”
The latest supervisor to leave the club as Maurizio Sarri, whose departure was welcomed by large parts of the Chelsea support.
Willian says he does not know exactly why things did not work out, but he does not think Sarri’s tenure was a devastating one.
“Sarri is a fantastic coach,” he added. “I can not tell you what happened.
“He had an interesting tactical concept, he liked to play a beautiful game, with the ball.
“Anyhow, he won a name, the Europa League, and third place in the Premier League. I don’t understand why it was not better. He was a really calm man on a daily basis.”
