‘It’s all so positive in a notsopositive world’
Klopp is certain the Reds are on the right track to end their sixyear wait for a trophy — and he wants supporters to cherish the ride.
Jurgen Klopp is in no mood for offering any kind of appraisal after reaching the milestone of three years as Liverpool manager, but is convinced the club are on course to achieve success and believes everyone should enjoy the journey towards it.
The German marked the anniversary of his appointment on Merseyside on October ■, during which time he’s taken the reins of the Reds 166 times and firmly established them as a powerful force at home and abroad once again.
Despite reaching the finals of the League Cup, Europa League and, most recently, the Champions League, Klopp has yet to lift his first piece of silverware as Liverpool manager.
Nevertheless, he is certain the Reds are on the right track to end their sixyear wait for a trophy — and he wants supporters to cherish the ride.
In an exclusive interview with Premier League Productions, Klopp was asked whether he would afford himself any time to reflect on his three years at Anfield so far.
He replied: “Not yet, I don’t want to do that, because why should I judge my time here before it’s over?
“Nobody wants to look back in 10 or 20 years and say ‘so the best time we had without winning anything was when Klopp was here. It was so funny and all that stuff’.
“That’s not really something you want to achieve, we still have time to do something special and we know that to underline the development and progress, we have to do it.
“Times change, and to be honest, it is much more difficult than it was in the past.
