Won’t just stand by and applaud
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained why his side will not just stand by and admire Manchester City following their incredible season.
The Cityzens have impressed in all competitions including the Champions League and their biggest test could come tonight against Liverpool.
The reds have had an equally impressive season both in Europe and in the Premier League with the side fighting for second place.
Though, they will not stand by and applaud Manchester City’s season according to Jurgen Klopp.
The German manager was talking about Guardiola’s side in his matchday programme notes before tonight’s game.
He explained that instead of them applauding, they must give themselves the chance to jump even higher.
“I think it is now clear that Pep is making the same impact in England that he did in Spain and Germany, in terms of creating a team that is capable of beauty and dominance,” wrote Klopp.
“Pep raises the bar, but I think rather than just stand and applaud our job at Liverpool is to keep focused on what we are doing to give ourselves the chance to jump even higher.
“That’s our job: worry about what we can affect, which is our own development as a team, and see where that takes us to.
“I look at our quality and I am excited about what is achievable for Liverpool, both for the rest of this campaign and the ones to come.”
