Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp feels that their Champions League triumph can be the foundation on which further success can be built. m
The Reds had a terrific 2018/19 season where they finished second in the Premier League and won the Champions League. Liverpool scripted one of the biggest comebacks in Champions League history by overturning a 3-goal deficit against Barcelona at Anfield last month.
The Champions League triumph finally ended Jurgen Klopp’s hoodoo in finals and was Liverpool’s first silverware since their League Cup triumph in 2012.
And Jurgen Klopp feels that this is just the beginning for his team. Klopp said, “Madrid wasn’t the final chapter for us – I think we’re still writing the introduction.
“When we were travelling around Liverpool with the European Cup on that magical Sunday, the words I heard sung the loudest were: “We’re never gonna stop!”
“That’s what this team and club has to live by. We arrived at this point because we were hungry for moments like June 1.”
Klopp also hailed his players for their remarkable performances throughout the season. The German said, “My players this year did remarkable things. I called them mentality giants after we beat Barcelona (in the Champions League last four) – but that’s not saying enough. Skill, intelligence, emotion, fitness – they have it all.”
After a terrific 2018/19 season, Jurgen Klopp and his players will hope to have a trophy-laden season. Liverpool have a good shot at winning several trophies this season. The Community Shield might be difficult but Liverpool are heavy favorites to win the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea and the FIFA Club World Cup.
