Jurgen Klopp talks about his three years at Liverpool

Now almost universally regarded to be Manchester City’s leading title contenders, it has been quite the rise for Liverpool.

Since bringing in Jurgen Klopp from Borussia Dortmund back in October 2015, the Reds really haven’t looked back.

While they might still be looking for their first piece of silverware under the German tactician, the signs of improvement have been very exciting.

Giving Liverpool a renowned style of play, the 51-year-old led his side to last years Champions League final.

Three years on from replacing Brendan Rodgers at Anfield, Klopp has discussed his journey so far.

Liverpool’s rise under Klopp

Spending over £100million during the summer, Liverpool are enjoying an eye-catching resurge and a lot of that can come thanks to Klopp.

Picking up 20 points out of a possible 24 at the start of the new season, this has been the Reds’ best start to the Premier League in recent memory.

Speaking in the week, Klopp has insisted that the mood in his camp is at an all-time high.

“In Liverpool, the enthusiasm, involvement and feeling of all people is brilliant. We have to keep that, that’s exactly how it should be.

“There are many things more important than football, but when you go to a football game there’s nothing more important. I can still feel how special it is and how blessed I am to be really that part of it.

“Being at this moment a Liverpool supporter or employee, it’s fantastic. It just feels great.”

Along with leading Liverpool to a runners-up finish in last years Champions League, Klopp has guided the Reds to the final of both the Europa League and the League Cup.

Under the energetic German, the Reds have also secured consecutive top-four finishes in the Premier League.

Klopp believes his tactics will pay off

While Klopp’s rebuilding job has impressed all around Anfield, the calls for a long overdue piece of silverware will slowly get louder.

Despite leading Liverpool to three finals, the German is yet to lift a trophy for the Reds.

Although he did not review the start of his tenure on Merseyside, Klopp believes it is only a matter of time until Liverpool pick up a winners medal.

“Nobody wants to look back in 10 or 20 years and say the best time we had without winning anything was when Klopp was in, it was so funny, all that stuff,” said the Reds boss.

“That’s not really something you want to achieve.

“But times have changed. It’s much more difficult than it was in the past.

“We are maybe in the best moment for ages, but a few other clubs have made the same steps. That makes it difficult.

“In most sports, coming second in the Olympics you come home with a silver medal. In football, it’s nothing. And it’s nothing for me as well. I want to win it, and I know that’s a responsibility.

“I put all I have, knowledge, passion, heart, experience, I throw everything into the club 100%. I don’t keep anything back.

“It should work, actually, at one point. But until then, we should have a really good time.”
