Jurgen Klopp talks on the spirit of togetherness LFC have to muster
- James Pearce sits down with Jurgen Klopp to talk about a number of issues
- They discuss transfer decisions, 'the next step' and surprise root of squad's togetherness
Liverpool ECHO's James Pearce sits down with the Reds' Boss to talk on a number of issues in a huge interview, which we will be presenting split into several parts.
Pearce notes that Klopp's passion and energy for the challenges ahead shines through as the Reds boss seems to be confident of LFC's season ahead.
While rival bosses are stamping their feet and demanding further reinforcements ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline, Klopp is clearly satisfied with his lot.
Here's what Jurgen had to say about LFC's spirit of togetherness even after Coutinho was about to leave the club:
“It started in pre-season with difficult moments with the 'Phil Story' (Coutinho's desire to join Barcelona). We didn't discuss it a lot but everybody knew about it, they knew it was happening.
“You have a good friend but actually he wants to leave. How they dealt with that then and during the season when it was still clear that he wanted to still leave and probably would was so good.
“Phil too. He was 100% here until he left – that was really cool and a good lesson for all of us.
“That's the situation that we need to create again. So these boys really work in the same way, create the same kind of spirit as we had last season as that was the basis for everything we reached. If we want to reach more, that's the least we need.”
