Klopp opens up on Liverpool's chances to go for the long-craved silverware
- 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 chances of getting the long-awaited silverware:
“I don't know, but it's a job to do,” Klopp said.
“It doesn't make sense to think about any other team in the league. We didn't lose the points against City, we lost the points against all the other teams.
“When I say we need to be more consistent, it's about getting more points. Why should we think about City? We only think about them in the moment we play them.
“We don't start chasing them before the season has started and think: 'Oh if they win and we draw on the second matchday, it's done.' That would make no sense.
“We have to be 100% focused on ourselves and take all these games like finals. Whether it's a weekend final or a midweek final, let's play with all we have, final whistle, judge it, analyse it, next game. That's how a season should be.
“In a positive moment you can come into a kind of flow like City had last year. We had to fight much more for our points in most of the games than they had to. But they fought as well – they had a lot of 2-1 results with a late winning goal and all that stuff.
“To play football is very important but to fight for the result is more important. That's what we have to show constantly – that desire to fight for the result. First of all, be ready to fight.”
