Jurgen Klopp makes title promise to Liverpool fans
Jurgen Klopp promises Liverpool fans that the Reds will keep themselves in the race for the title this season
Jurgen Klopp has promised Liverpool fans that the Reds will do all they can to try and win the Premier League title this season.
The Reds have started the campaign in promising fashion and currently sit second in the table heading into the hectic round of festive fixtures.
Liverpool are currently six points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea as they look to catch Antonio Conte’s men in the race for the top-flight crown.
Klopp was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at Anfield back in October 2015 and has been tasked with steering Liverpool back into the Champions League after the Reds finished eighth last season.
However, Klopp feels that Liverpool have all of the necessary ingredients to win the Premier League title this season.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Klopp said: “As much as we love all the guys from the past which created this club, we cannot make their job. We have to do our job.
“Let’s do it and let’s try it. We are good enough and the club is big enough. We have the owners we need because they don’t want to sell players. Nobody should leave here because of money. We are not the best-paying club in the world, but we can pay enough to stay.
“This moment at Liverpool is fantastic and we have to use it. We are in the present really good and the future is bright, so go for it.
“That doesn’t mean that we can’t lose games. What really makes the joy a little bit smaller is when we lose a game people say ‘that’s like the season 2004-05 when we lost to I-don’t-know where’.
“It’s not, it’s never the same. We do not have it in our DNA that we lose a decisive game.
“We are young enough, we are good enough, we are strong enough and we have an outstanding, skilled team. The only problem is there are a few teams around that have not a worse team, too.
“It’s still football. The more you wish doesn’t make it more likely, but it’s still possible and we will stay in the race, for sure.”
Liverpool are currently gearing up for their Premier League clash against Stoke City on Tuesday night. The Reds were 1-0 winners over Everton in their last outing.
