Liverpool FC backed to win Premier League title within four years
Jurgen Klopp hopes he can deliver silverware at Anfield after becoming the new manager of Liverpool FC
October 9th, 2015
Liverpool FC have a brand new manager and it appears that Jurgen Klopp has arrived to popular acclaim despite the fact he is yet to take charge of a Reds match.
Klopp has also never managed outside of Germany although he was the club’s primary choice to replace Brendan Rodgers and has taken charge less than a week after his predecessor managed Liverpool for the final time.
A packed press conference were interested to hear his thoughts about potentially landing Liverpool the Premier League title, something that Rodgers came close to achieving during the 2013/4 campaign, with Klopp admitting it will take time to achieve the right results.
“I am the Normal One. I was a very average player, became a manager in Germany at a special club, Mainz, then I had a great opportunity to take Dortmund, a special club for seven years. For both parties it was best to leave and now I am here. I hope to enjoy my work. Everyone has told me about the British press so it is up to you to show they are all liars.
“When I left Dortmund, my last sentence was it is not so important what people think when you come in, it is more important what they think when you leave. Please give us time to work on it. If you want, this could be a really special day.
“This is a very difficult league, opponents maybe bigger but in a special Liverpool way we can be successful. I don’t want to say we can wait 20 years. If we sit here in four years, I think we win one title. If I don’t win the next one, maybe it will have to be in Switzerland.”
“We only want to discuss very good players, discussing on the highest level. I am not a genius. I don’t know more than the rest of the world. I need other people to get perfect information.”
“I am a football romantic,” he said. “I love the stories, the histories. It was my first time at Anfield and I thought about how it would be. I am a really lucky guy. I am looking forward to the first training with the players. I am relaxed. I had four months’ holiday and am in my best shape.”
He added: “It is the intensity of the football, of how the people live football in Liverpool, all the Liverpool fans around the world. It is not a normal club, it is a special club. I had two very special clubs with Mainz and Dortmund. It is the perfect next step for me to be here and try and help.”
