Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said that rival fans who do not want Liverpool to win are people he is not interested in. Liverpool fans have a lot to be excited about this season as the Reds have a very good chance of winning the Premier League. However, there are a number of fans from rival clubs who do not want Liverpool to win.
Talking about this, Klopp said, “I never thought about that. I love winning because of winning and not because someone else has to lose.
I cannot take a personal boost from winning and thinking they lost. I am not like that. If people think like that and gain something out of the fact that we will not win the league, I feel for them. I cannot use them for motivation because they are not people I am interested in, to be honest.
It is a waste of time for me to think of anybody losing something. If you win it, you win it, and you deserve to. ‘Congratulations. Carry on.’ That is how I see it.”
Klopp said that Everton fans feel happy because if a club from the city will win. However, Klopp believes that there aren’t many Liverpool supporters in Manchester.
The German said, “I don’t know who thinks like that about us, but probably in Manchester there are not a lot of Liverpool supporters. Unfortunately I don’t know enough people in England and the people I do know – even if they are Evertonians and know me personally – they think IF not us, then you can win it. It is still Liverpool [the city].
But it is not a surprise that people in Manchester might not want us to win it!”
