UK pubcaster Channel 4 is prepped for the UEFA Champions League Final with a fast-turnaround doc airing tonight (May 30) at 10 p.m.

Produced by Whisper Films, Klopp vs Poch – Battle of the Supermanagers focuses on Liverpool FC’s football manager Jurgen Klopp (pictured, right), and Mauricio Pochettino (left) from Tottenham Hotspur.

The one-hour doc provides insight on how Klopp and Pochettino have led the English clubs to the final showdown in Madrid, Spain, and gained cult status with unique methods and management techniques.

It also includes interviews with managers, players, fans and club legends, and includes football personalities John Barnes, Jermaine Jenas, Les Ferdinand, Matthew Syed and Chelcee Grimes.

The documentary was commissioned by Channel 4′s head of specialist factual, Fatima Salaria.

“Who are these hugely charismatic and influential executives who are able to make millions for their employers and transform lives of fans through success on the pitch? How do these two very distinct personalities and coaching styles get the very best from their players?” said Salaria of Klopp and Pochettino, in a statement.
