How Klopp reacts to Liverpool premier league win
Liverpool FC manager, Jurgen Klopp, said the new Premier league Champions, in spite winning the 2019/20 league title, the club is not leaving anything to chance as it braces up to face former league Champion, Manchester City on July 2.
“We are in a good moment, we are all young enough to still go for something,” said Klopp.
“This is not the final destination. It’s a moment like last year’s Champions League final. From that moment you carry on, and that’s what we’ll do now.
Klopp said Liverpool have got rid of the “heavy backpack”.”The history is no burden anymore,” he said. “The history is now our wonderful background, it’s the basis for what we are doing.
He says Liverpool’s trophy-laden past is no longer a “burden” for his players following their Premier League title win.
“When I came in we had to say, don’t compare us anymore with the fantastic people who played for this club and won everything in the past. We needed to get the opportunity from our supporters to find our own way.
“This was only possible because nobody lost patience with us in any moment.
“Football management is a nice job but a difficult one as well, we cannot really ask for time. We have to deliver immediately. People have to see the steps we make; [Liverpool fans] saw them because they wanted to see them. This story was possible then,” he told Sky Sports
“When I heard first time about the fixture list, two games in three days and then eight days off, that made no sense. But now it’s a perfect fit.
“We will train from Saturday again at full throttle. We have to play Manchester City next and if we go there at 50 per cent, they’ll shoot us out of the stadium. That will not happen. We will be ready.”
When asked for his thoughts on a possible guard of honour by the Manchester City players, Klopp replied: “We can’t influence that. If it happens, it happens.
“We are champions. On the pitch, we will behave like we have never won anything before.”
In December, Klopp signed a new contract with Liverpool which ties him to Anfield until 2024.
