Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp says The Reds will try to secure the club’s 19th league title success in the best manner possible – by playing great football.
The first-team returned to small-group training today at Melwood as England prepares for a gradual return to football action.
It’s hoped the Premier League will restart in June, with Liverpool needing just six more points to wrap up the long-awaited league title success.
Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com in a live-streamed interview, Klopp discussed his plans and wishes for the coming weeks.
“When we start, it goes really again for everything. The competition will make the intensity. So it’s not about, ‘Oh, Liverpool have to win two games.’ By the way, we have to win two games when we start – it’s not ‘only two’, it’s two. It’s not less or more. We have to win them, it’s not that we want to win the last two or whatever and come through somehow. We want to play the best possible football, better than other teams fighting for the Champions League, fighting to stay in the league.”
Klopp commented on the challenges of playing behind closed doors with Liverpool sure to miss the famed Anfield atmosphere. As always, Herr Klopp was willing to find the positives in the situation with some more words of wisdom.
“We have to do it, unfortunately, without the best boost in the world and the best kick in your ass in the right moment in the world, from the Anfield crowd. But that’s how it is. I never understood in life why you always want things you don’t have, you cannot have. In this moment we cannot have that, so let’s take the rest and make the absolute best of it.”
