Will Jurgen Klopp take his football romance with Liverpool to a new level?
Jurgen Klopp had multiple offers when he left Borussia Dortmund, but he chooses to come to Liverpool. His philosophy while choosing a new club is simple – to enjoy the history, play quality football, and he must be able to help the club to improve. In an interview with former Liverpool great Robbie Fowler, Jurgen Klopp talk about his football romance with the club and why he preferred Liverpool rather than managing any other bigger club in Europe. Now, the real question is will he be able to take his football romance with Liverpool to a new level?
Klopp told Fowler in an interview with Mirror, “I love the history. I really am a football romantic. I knew I probably can help. They maybe really need me, in this time. I know what I’m good at. When they told me about the problems they had I thought, ‘Ok, yeah, I am probably the really right manager for that club.”
He adds, “A little thing. Liverpool is a world class brand, big, big, big, but in Melwood, you know it Robbie, it is still a family, nothing else, and you can go in and feel that.”
Klopp also talked about his priority for the club. He said, “I have to develop and improve, sure, but I don’t want to go into the office in the morning to wear a tie. That is not me.”
“It’s a football club. A football club. I had talks with other clubs and they didn’t sound like a football club. It sounded like marketing, image, you need to sign this, you need to sign that. And I thought wow, that’s not the game I love. It’s all part of football, but it can’t be the number one, two, three, four, priority. First of all please try to improve the game we play. And that’s what I am good in. all the rest can happen but it’s not so important for me.”
We hope Klopp take his football romance with Liverpool to a new level. He has taken Anfield giant to play a final in each season, whether it’s Europa League final on debut, or The League Cup last season, or the Uefa Champions League final this season. It’s time to deliver the title and it couldn’t be better if the first title arrives in Uefa Champions League.
It will take his football romance to another level with Liverpool. Fans surely love him, players respect him, and colleagues admire him, but he needs to add titles to create a history at the club. His first big test will be against Real Madrid on 26 May in Kiev in Champions League final. It’s time to deliver for the magician and really prove how much he loves his beloved club.
